The Jota GT1 LM was commissioned by Automobili Lamborghini at the beginning of the 1995 season to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans against McLaren F1 GTRs, Ferrari LMs, Porsche 911s and Nismo Skyline GT-R LMs.
It would not have been Lamborghini’s first at the famous endurance, as in 1975 Paul Rilly and his friend Roger Levève entered a 1968 Islero in the GTX category with no luck.
UK-based Amos Racing was contracted to build the vehicle and have it ready in time for La Sarthe’s race in June.
The Larrousse Formula 1 team, which at the time already ended its not-so-lucky adventure in the Circus — housing Sant’Agata Bolognese V12 engines in 1992 and 1993 — took care of the first testing.
The car apparently behaved the right way, but due to some legal disputes between Lamborghini and Amos Racing, the entire project came to an end not so long before the race.
