- The First Car To Finish The Le Mans 24 Hours Using Renewable Fuel
- Icon in Le Mans History
- Took Part in a Total of 6 Races
- Currently Running Super Unleaded Petrol
- Chassis Number 001

The DM139 was the first car to finish the Le Mans 24 Hours using renewable fuel and is the product of British Kent-based ‘Team Nasamax’. By using a combination of innovative science and an experienced team headed by John McNeil, Nasamax created a car that would leave a significant mark in the Le Mans 24 Hours. The DM139 ran on 100% bioethanol through its naturally aspirated 5.5L V10 Judd engine (although has now been converted to run on super unleaded which can be reversed if requsted, at an additional cost). This made a huge statement in the automotive world, demonstrating the theory that renewable fuels could be just as competitive as fossil fuels, but also burn much cleaner.

Proof of the capabilities of the biofuel run LMP1 (Le Mans Prototypes 1) car came in 2004, where the DM139 was the first car to finish the Le Mans 24 Hours on renewable fuel, finishing 7th in its class and 17th overall out of 48 cars. The successes didn’t just stop there. It was the fastest car down the Mulsanne straight at the same race, reaching a speed of 205 mph – an incredible figure for a car that ran a completely different fuelling setup to the rest of the field.

The DM139 left even more turning points in the Le Mans 24 Hours history books by being the first car to have its own class made specifically to enter the race, bringing completely new technology. The impact was so significant that the class remains today, now known as the G56 class. This is an incredibly rare opportunity to own a piece of Le Mans history through this chassis number 001 LMP1 race car, bringing with it a story of innovation and huge potential.
