I'm going to compile a list of cars available in the legendary car dealer (to figure out their rotation cycle and the list of cars needed for Three Legendary Cars trophy). I haven't paid much attention before, so any information before Mar 10 may not be accurate. If you know have more accurate data, please let me know.

Anyway, I remember no one had Three Legendary Cars trophy on the release date (Mar 4), but in the past week, someone got the trophy, so you can see '0.1% of players earned' for this trophy on PS5 version at this moment (Mar 10). It could be either a developer, hacker, or reviewer's account. If it's a reviewer, then all three car have appeared already sometimes between the reviewer release and Mar 10. I don't have the full list of cars which had been available during that period, but out of 18 cars I have right now (either I've seen it myself or from reviewers' video), Porsche 917K '70, Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe '64, Ford Mark IV Race Car '67 seem suspicious. 917K + Mark IV + C9 + XJ13 didn't popped the trophy. Both Mark IV and C9 won Le Mans, 917K won both Le Mans and Daytona (but if livery matters, then this particular 917K only won Daytona and the other double winner XJR-9 is only a Le Mans winner), XJ13 didn't even enter any race. As such, the trophy seems to require either 3 specific winners (if livery doesn't matter), or 3 Le Mans winners (if livery matters, so 917K is excluded in this case). In case of former (i.e. C9 is excluded for some reason), the most suspicious ones are 917K, Mark IV, and either 787B or XJR-9 or F1 GTR at this point. In case of latter (i.e. 917K is excluded due to the wrong livery), then Mark IV, C9, and either 787B or XJR-9 or F1 GTR. The other possible combo is, Mark IV + 330 P4 + XJ13 (from GT5 trophy).

So far, new stocks get the 'limited stock' mark 4-5 days after its first apperance (Corvette C2 broke this pattern, took only 3 days until the limited stock mark showed up. 500 Mondial also got the limited stock mark after 3 days of its release. I guess we're going to see slightly faster rotations after the patch 1.08) C9 and F1 broke this pattern again, so it's now 3-5 days from its release to the limited stock mark (1.11 patch broke so many patterns. See the footnote below this table for the detail) It takes 1-5 days from its release to the limited stock, and those limited stock cars were sold out 2-3 days after it turned to limited stock, and replaced by another car a day after sold out.

*** 1.11 Update (Apr 7) introduced the 10 car rotations. It also broke many patterns. Previously, it took 3-5 days from new release to limited stock. Now we have 1 day example (365 GTB4 '71) as well as 6 day example (2J 70'). Also, previously, it always took 2 days from limited stock to sold out. But CLK-LM '98 didn't go sold out after 2 days (took 3 days).
**** On Apr 15, there was a massive influx of possible candidates for the three legendary cars trophy, and all of them didn't popped the trophy (787B, XJR-9, R92CP). So the 330P4 + XJ13 + Mark IV seems much more plausible at this point.

Descriptions as shown on the 'learn more' sections of the dealership
  • Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe '64 The Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe may be the most valuable Shelby Cobra of them all. Determined to win Le Mans for Ford... Carroll Shelby asked friend and employee Pete Brock to design a coupé body for the Cobra. Spec-wise, it was virtually the same as the 289 Cobra, but the coupé body boosted its top speed by over 30 km/h. Taking class victories at Le Mans and Daytona, this Cobra became the champion of the FIA GT Class in 1965. With only six Daytona Coupes in existence including prototypes, they are almost mythical in their rarity (tags #Racing Car).
  • Nissan Fairlady Z 432 '69 The first model of the Nissan Z series was known as the type S30. Of all the S30, this Z432 is particularly special. With a classic Z-series design... It is powered by the same S20 2L inline six-cylinder engine seen in the Skyline GT-Rs of its day. The four valves per cylinder... Three carburettors... And two cams don't just prove its high performance. These numbers are also the origin of the 'Z432' model name. The fact that it had a GT-R engine was reflected in its price, more than double that of standard S30s. Furthermore, only 419 of the Z432s were produced, making it the most valuable of the first-gen Zs. There was also a higher performance competition model of the Z432, the Z432R. An extremely rare variant, it tends to fetch a very handsome price at auctions. (tags #Road Car)
  • Alfa Romeo GIULIA TZ2 carrozzata da ZAGATO '65 You'd be hard pressed to find a wilder, more bewitching street-legal car than the Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ. It's also incredibly rare, with only around 12 ever built! And what's truly miraculous... Is that this is a pure race car with no history of crashes, or restoration work. No wonder it's so famous! To top it all off, the TZ2 won the Gran Turismo Trophy at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. (tags #Racing Car)
  • Toyota Supra GT500 '97 The 1997 Castrol TOM'S Supra is one of the most famous race cars in the history of Japanese motorsport. The All Japan Grand Touring Car Championship was a very popular event in Japan from the late 90s to the early 2000s, featuring cars like the Nissan Skyline GT-R, the Honda NSX, and of course, the Toyota Supra. The Nissan's GT-Rs dominated the series title from the start of the championships... But the first car that challenged and overthrew their dominance was this 1997 Castrol TOM'S Supra. The Supra would go on to win the All Japan GT Championship four times in total. But it's this iconic TOM's Supra that I remember most fondly. (tags #Racing Car #GT500)
  • Alfa Romeo 155 2.5 V6 TI '93 This is one of the most recognisable cars from the 1990s German touring car championship known as the DTM. After entry criteria were loosened in 1993, the DTM became a platform for developing some very powerful cars. One of these was the Alfa 155 2.5 V6 TI, the car fielded by the Alfa Romeo works team. Winning 12 out of 20 races in 1993... It secured a championship title for both the driver Nicola Larini and the manufacturer. The DTM was later absorbed into an international competition before discontinued in 1996. This meant that Alfa Romeo would go down in history as the only non-German manufacturer to win the series. One of the most significant DTM cars, it is more unique because it's not German. (tags #Racing Car)
  • Jaguar E-type Coupé '61 The E-type Coupé, which made its debut in 1961, had a huge influence on sports car design. The engine in the car's nose was based on the straight-six that won Le Mans five times in the C- and D-types. Although known to the world as the 'E-type', in North America it is often called the 'XK-E'. The beautiful body, which evolved from the D-Type sports racer, was designed by Malcom Sayer... Who is known as an early proponent of aerodynamic design for automobiles. The E-Type remained in production for 14 years, evolving to comply with later safety and emission laws. Still, it remained instantly recognisable to everyone. Although jaguar didn't have a factory race programme for the E-Type in motorsports... It did build a 'low-drag' coupé and 12 lightweight E-Types that raced on both sides of the Atlantic. Famous for its good looks, the Jaguar E-Type is also a seriously fast sportscar. (tags #Road Car)
  • Porsche 356 A/1500 GS Carrera '56 On the outside, the Porsche GS Carrera looks no different from other 356 coupés of its day, but what makes this GS Carrera so special and raises its value, is the four-cam 1.5L engine that produces 98.6 HP. This engine was the most powerful version available for the 356 series at the time. It was also possible to order lighter speedster seats, and even without heaters to reduce weight. That's why the GS was not just a fast street car, but was also seen in many races. I think you'll find that it's directly linked to Porsche's illustrious past! (tags #Road Car)
  • Ferrari F50 '95 The F50 was the successor to the F40, and was one of the most Spartan cars Ferrari ever produced. The idea came from Enzo Ferrari's son, Piero, who wanted to create a road car similar to an F1 race car for the company's 50th anniversary. This is reflected in things like the F50's V12 engine being mounted in the same structure as the Ferrari F1 machine. The V12 engine in-house is also based on the V12 used in the Ferrari F1 racers. So if you're in the mood to drive a Ferrari F1 around town, the F50 is the car for you! (tags #Road Car #Midship)
  • Ford Mark IV Race Car '67 The Ford Mark IV dominated the 1967 Le Mans 24 hour race, and it was a momentous achievement for Ford, which had also won the prior year. The car was powered by the 7L V8 engine that Carroll Shelby had chosen for the Mark II, but its chassis was completely different. The chassis was based on the J-car that was under development to meet new regulations... incorporating cutting edge aerodynamic innovations. As a result, the Mark IV was incredibly quick. So quick in fact, that it finished a full four laps ahead of the second-placed Ferrari 330 P4 at Le Mans in 1967. It's also worth noting that the drivers Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt were both American, making this the first victory for an all-American team in the history of the 24 hours of Le Mans. And it's because of these facts that the Ford Mark IV has a special place in motorsport history. (tags #Racing Car #Le Mans #Midship)
  • Plymouth XNR Ghia Roadster '60 This unique Plymouth roadster is best known for having been designed by Carrozzeria Ghia. But do you know where the "XNR" name comes from? If you try to read "XNR" out loud, it sounds just like "Exner", doesn't it? It's the name of the legendary American designer Vigil Max Exner... ...who led Chrysler's design for much of the 1950s and 1960s. He developed various designs in conjunction with Luigi Segre of Carrozzeria Ghia. Many innovative and interesting designs resulted from this collaboration. And this XNR Ghia Roadster was one of them. The XNR also made waves in 2011 when it claimed the Gran Turismo Trophy at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. (tags #Road Car)
  • Shelby G.T.350 '65 The 1965 Shelby GT350 is a variant of the Mustang that debuted in 1964. It was a model that was born from the collaboration between Ford and Carroll Shelby, and has a fantastic history of successes in the world of racing. Ford's then General Manager, Lee Lacocca, is generally regarded as the man behind the Mustang. In addition to knowing how to build cars people wanted. Lacocca understood the value of motorsport, which is why he entrusted the Mustang's racing project to Shelby. The result of this new collaboration was the GT350. Being made specifically for racing, it's very spartan compared to the standard Mustang, its light, 2-seat setup and high-performance 289 engine ensured success in SCCA and other competition races. (tags #Road Car)
  • Ferrari F40 '92 The F40 was the last Ferrari to have been personally approved by the company's founder, Enzo Ferrari. The development codename of the F40 was "LM", standing for "Le Mans". You can see that it was designed as a road car, while it has the appearance of a serious race car. Some say that the F40 suffers from turbo lag and a peaky engine. ...but I consider it to be a very refined example of Ferrari engineering. Many professional drivers maintain that the engine has very few shortcomings if it is properly controlled. That means, if you have the driving skill, you can handle it. (tags #Road Car #Midship)
  • Jaguar XJ13 '66 Jaguar played a huge part in the history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, winning this famous race five times in the 1950s with the C-Type and D-Type. However Jaguar withdrew from competition at Le Mans after 1956, and didn't show interest in racing again until the 1960s. But development of a sports car to succeed the D-Type had been secretly underway. That successor of the D-Type, is the car you see before you, the XJ13 with a midship mounted V12. But unfortunately, this XJ13 never made it to Le Mans. By the time the car was ready, management's priorities had changed again. We can only imagine what might have happened, had Jaguar been part of the legendary Ford-Ferrari tussle at the '67 Le Mans. (tags #Racing Car #Le Mans #Midship)
  • Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion '97 What do you call a street-legal Porsche 911 that shoots from zero to 100.0km in 3.7 sec, and tops out at 310km/h? Why, the Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion of course! Developed to meet competition rules for the Le Mans GT1 Class, only 25 cars were ever sold. The production car it was based on was pretty much a race car to begin with. From its nose to its front suspension, the Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion looks like a type 993 911. But behind the seats you'll see lots of parts reminiscent of the Porsche 962 that competed at Le Mans in the '80s. The engine is a twin turbocharged flat-six with a 3.2L displacement. A chance to own this car rarely comes around. So here's your chance. (tags #Road Car #Midship)
  • Chevrolet Corvette (C2) '63 No sports car says "America'' quite like the Chevrolet Corvette! This second generation model, also known as the Sting Ray was especially popular. Later versions featuring the L88 racing engine are very collectable, and regularly sell for over $1 million. This 1963 coupé is perhaps best known for its split rear window. It's a design feature that was only used in the first year models because it limited rear visibility. The one-year "split window" Sting Rays are hugely popular, and are among the most collectable Corvettes. (tags #Road Car)
  • Ferrari 500 Mondial Pinin Farina Coupe '54 The 500 Mondial Pinin Farina Coupe was one of the great Ferraris of the 1950s. There are a few different types of the Ferrari Mondial, But this is 1 of 2 coupés that were built to race the 1954 Tour de France! Unfortunately it retired out of the race, but perhaps this was a good thing, given how well it was taken care of and endured throughout the years. The car was bought by a French collector and safely stored away in a chateau for several decades. So, when John Shirley acquired the car in 2002, everything from the engine to the paint finish was in perfect condition! After only minor work, he was able to enter it in the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2012. Unsurprisingly, it went home with the Gran Turismo Trophy. (tags #Road Car)
  • Mercedes-Benz Sauber Mercedes C9 '89 If I were to ask you to think of Swiss F1 team, chances are you'd think of Sauber, which was founded by Peter Sauber, a keen amateur race driver. Sauber built his first race car in 1970, and drove it in hill climbs. Sauber then focused on the management side of things, and the team experienced early success with the BMW-engined C5. In many ways, that success was the launchpad which propelled the team all the way to Formula 1 in 1993. Prior to its F1 involvement, Sauber's greatest achievement was the C9, a Group C race car developed with Mercedes. The C9 made its racing debut in 1987, and soon tasted victory. In the 1989 season it was virtually unrivaled, becoming the winner of the World Sportscar Championship and winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans! (tags #Racing Car #Le Mans #Midship)
  • McLaren F1 '94 Is the McLaren F1 the greatest supercar of them all? Quite possibly. McLaren's founder, Bruce McLaren, had always wanted to enter the road car business, but died in 1970 before a true production car could be developed. The company would not start working on road cars again until the late 1980s. And this 3 seater "McLaren F1" was finally born in 1992. Conceived and engineered by Gordon Murray, the exterior and interior were designed by Peter Stevens. Many aspects of this car, including the weight balance and distribution, are close to perfection. Needless to say with only 106 built, they're not easy to get. It's little wonder that the McLaren F1 is one of the most desirable supercars ever. (tags #Road Car #Midship)
  • Porsche 917K '70 The 917K is one of the most important race cars in Porsche's history. It was developed from the long-tailed 917LH which made its debut in 1969. Under its hood was a few different engines depending on the car, from a 4.5-liter, 4.9-liter and a 5.0-liter air-cooled flat-12. Fast and ferocious on the track, the 917K delivered Porsche its first overall victory at Le Mans. Although Porsche didn't have a works team, the 917K still won 7 of 10 races in the International Championship for Makes. Even better, it would also go on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans that year, and again in 1971. Porsche's golden era began with the 917K, making it one of the most significant models in motorsports history. (tags #Racing Car #Midship)
  • Ford GT40 Mark I '66 When most people think of the Ford GT40, they think of Carroll Shelby, and they wouldn't be wrong. But it's worth mentioning that Shelby wasn't actually involved with the first GT40 Mark I, which appeared in 1964. The Mark I was a car with a fantastic concept. I think the way it retains the look of a classic GT car makes it especially beautiful. The only thing the Mark I was missing was the reliability required for endurance racing. That's why Ford decided to hand a large part of its racing program over to Shelby. And, the rest is history. But the GT40 Mark I is where it all began, and because of that, it's considered a prized collector's item. (tags #Road Car #Midship)
  • De Tomaso Mangusta '69 Giorgetto Giugiaro is a legend in the world of car design. He's worked on so many great cars, it would be hard to pick just one to define him. But if I had to choose... ...I'd go for the De Tomaso Mangusta, a car he designed while working for Carrozzeria Ghia. The Mangusta looks more striking than many of Giugiaro's later designs. There's something elegant about its sleek lines. It's a simple design, and yet it's glamorous and muscular, too. The Mangusta bowed in 1966, and only 400 were produced. It's powered by a Ford overhead valve V-8. These days they're highly sought-after as early examples of Giugiaro's genius. (tags #Road Car #Midship)
  • Nissan Skyline Hard Top 2000GT-R (KPGC10) '70 The "Hakosuka" Skyline has become a cult classic for Japanese car enthusiasts. Of the various models, this 2-door hardtop GT-R, known by its model number, KPGC10, stands out. This car remains on the most-wanted list for many collectors. Among the car's many charms was its engine. It was the direct descendent of the high-performance engine in Japan's first prototype race car, the Prince R380. Fewer than 1200 KPGC10s coupes were produced. Including the 4-door models, the total is still only around 2000 cars. This car made a name for itself by winning 49 consecutive races in the Japanese Touring Car Championship. Owning it means owning a piece of that incredible history. (tags #Road Car)
  • Ferrari GTO '84 To me, when Leonardo Fioravanti was at Pininfarina and designing for Ferrari... ..remains one of the greatest periods in the company's history. Starting with the Dino 246 and culminating with this 288 GTO, most cars featured mid-mounted V-8 engines. Although its styling may appear sleek and feminine, the rear fenders are an indication of its mighty power. Only Fioravanti could craft such a beautiful mid-engine car! Some would say that the GTO is the epitome of his genius. The 288 GTO's model name is derived from its twin-turbocharged 2.8-liter V-8 powerplant. Only 270 were ever made, so they're not that easy to find. Still, it's a must-have for any serious Ferrari collection. (tags #Road Car #Midship)
  • Porsche 356 A/1500 GS AT Carrera Speedster '56 It's a well-known fact that Porsche's first production car started with the rear-engine Porsche 356. Full production of the 356 series began in 1950... ...and the coupé model was soon followed by open-top versions. All of these models shared a boxed sheet metal chassis with independent suspension. And the flat-4 engine was available in five different displacements and output. A slightly modified 356A appeared in 1955. In 1956, a high performance 1.5-liter engine developed for the 550 Spyder was offered as an option. Models equipped with the powerful 1.5-liter engine were called the GS Carrera. They are known to have been cars that could immediately be raced as is. This model is a GS Carrera GT, characterized by a lighter body and powerful engine. These cars are collectibles that rarely change hands, so don't miss your chance to drive it! (tags #Road Car)
  • Lamborghini Miura P400 Bertone Prototype '67 The legendary Miura supercar was actually Lamborghini's first midship design. This car is chassis 0706-the second of the first five cars built-and is the oldest Miura in existence. Even for a brand as storied as Lamborghini, the Miura is especially legendary. Its chassis-designed by Gian Paolo Dallara-was displayed without a body, at the 1965 Turin Salon. Those who saw it thought it was a sure sign that Lamborghini was going to start racing! The reaction was enough to persuade company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini to greenlight its development, and the first prototype Miura was completed the following year in 1966. This chassis number 0706 has miraculously survived the years without any restoration work, and it was entered in the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2008, where it won the Gran Turismo Trophy.

  • Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Coupé '54 The Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Coupé is a classic car with a real racing pedigree. It was based on the legendary W194 racing coupé, which won races all over the world, including the 24 hours of Le Mans, and the Carrera Panamericana, a victory which really turned heads in North America. East coast importer Max Hoffman asked the German manufacturer to produce a road version of the W194. Some dealers claimed to have a hundred orders waiting Mercedes-benz relented, and the 300 SL "Gullwing" Coupé resulted. It's undoubtedly one of the most important models in the company's history!

  • AMG CLK-LM '98 This CLK-LM is one of the most attractive race cars produced by Mercedes-Benz. It only competed for a few years in the late 1990s, racing in GT1, which was then the pinnacle of Touring Car competition. GT1-class regulations required an automaker to build only one street car to be approved for competition. Despite their appearance, these street cars were in fact full-on race machines. The CLK-LM's predecessor, the CLK-GTR, was produced in accordance to these regulations in 1997. When the FIA GT World Championships began that same year, the CLK-GTR took home the title. This CLK-LM was a further evolution of the CLK-GTR. The replacement of the V-12 engine with a V-8 improved the race car's overall balance. As soon as it took to the track in the '98 FIA-GT Championships, it absolutely dominated the competition. That year, it took home both Drivers' and Manufacturers' Championships.

  • Chaparral 2J '70 Have you ever considered who had the most influence over modern racing car technology? For me, that would be either Colin Chapman or Jim Hall. Chapman, of course, was founder of Lotus. But do you know Jim Hall? He is the founder of Chaparral Cars, but also a driver who competed in Formula 1, as well as being a brilliant engineer. The most innovative of all the Chaparral cars was this 1970 2J, aka the "sucker" car. It featured two fans at the rear of the chassis, which were a part of a suction system that produced downforce. Other innovations included an adjustable spoiler and a two-pedal semi-automatic transmission... All in all, it's one of the most outlandish and imaginative race cars ever produced. The 2J was undoubtedly Chaparral's greatest achievement, and lives on in motorsport legend to this day. (tags #Racing Car #Midship)
  • Aston Martin DB3S '53 I know what you're thinking: a DB3 road car doesn't exist. The DB2 was followed by the DB2/4, the DB2/4 Mk II, the Mark III, and then the DB4. If that's what you're thinking, then you certainly know your Aston Martins! There was, however, a DB3 race car. It was introduced in 1951, and, unfortunately, saw limited success. This DB3S is an upgrade version that was released in 1953. It's well known as a true masterpiece. Its beefed-up inline-6 engine powered it to numerous victories in some of the UK's most famous races. This particular example, chassis number 1... ...is the car that took home the Gran Turismo Trophy at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2013. (tags #Racing Car)
  • Abarth 1500 Biposto Bertone B.A.T 1 '52 Franco Scaglione was a designer who applied the principles of aeronautical engineering to car design during his career. He is perhaps best known for his B.A.T. design concept cars. B.A.T. stands for "Berlina Aerodinamica Tecnica," and these were experimental vehicles designed for aerodynamic testing. This car predates B.A.T. 5, which is usually considered the first of the B.A.T series. But the owner Chris Drake and many historians believe that this car spawned the B.A.T. series... ...and should be considered to be B.A.T.1. First presented at the 1952 Turin Motor Show, it was later owned by the Packard Motor Car Company. Lovingly restored over a period of seven years, Drake's hard work paid off in 2010... ...when, at the famous Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance... ...it won the Gran Turismo Trophy! (tags #Road Car)
  • Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Touring Berlinetta '38 The 8C name refers to the engine's eight cylinders, and these cars are the iconic pre-war Alfa Romeos. The inline-8 was designed by the genius Italian engineer Vittorio Jano. The "Berlinetta" body was made by famed coachbuilder Touring. There were only five Berlinettas made in total. This particular one, from 1937, appeared in many motor shows and catalogues. It also won "Best of Show" at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2018. It then won the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este the following year... ...before winning the Louis Vuitton Classic Concours Award. I doubt many other cars have won prizes at three of the world's biggest concours. Needless to say, its current value is nothing short of astronomical. (tags #Road Car)
  • Ferrari 365 GTB4 '71 The 365 GTB/4 remains one of the most memorable Ferraris. It made its debut in 1968... ...as the successor to iconic 1960s Ferraris like the 250 GT Lusso and the 275 GTB. It is a front engine/rear-wheel-drive model, powered by a 4-cam 4390 cc V-12. Like all Ferraris of the period, the first number indicated the displacement per cylinder. The 'GT" stood for "Gran Turismo." The "B" designated it as a "Berlinetta," meaning that it was a coupe. And the "4" represented the 4-cam engine with double overhead cams on each cylinder bank. Most people know this car as the Ferrari Daytona. A name inspired by the company's historic 1-2-3 finish at the Daytona 24 Hours in '67, a year prior to its release. A major achievement indeed!

  • Mercedes-Benz 300 SL (W194) '52 The type W194 300SL is one of the more notable Mercedes-Benz machines from the Golden Age of racing of the 1950s. A champion at Le Mans and the Carrera Panamericana, the car is also known for inspiring the iconic 300SL Coupe. Designed by Rudolf Uhlenhaut, a legendary engineer with a vast amount of experience in race car design... ...the Mercedes-Benz W194 300SL boasted the latest in the race technology of its day. It featured a spaceframe chassis, an independent suspension and a single-overhead camshaft inline-6. Only ten were believed to have been built. Thanks to its excellent performance and reliability, the car shone in endurance races. This car, chassis number 007/52, is the car that won Le Mans. If a W194 were to hit the market now, the price would surely be astronomical. (tags #Racing Car)
  • Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 Evolution 2 '86 The Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 is sometimes referred to as the 'ultimate rally car'. It was originally designed to compete in the World Rally Championship's legendary Group B category. Group B regulations were officially implemented in 1983, and at the time, only 200 of a model were required for Group B homologation within 12 months. No commitment to mass production of road versions meant that manufacturers could make bold decisions on development. And the choice made by Peugeot, was to mount a powerful turbocharged engine midship, combined with 4WD. At that point, the other teams in Group B hadn't yet adopted the configuration, which initially gave Peugeot an advantage. The Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 made its debut in the middle of the 1984 season, and it immediately proved itself to be effective, winning the World Rally Championship title in 1985 and 1986.

  • BMW McLaren F1 GTR Race Car '97 McLaren's founder, Bruce McLaren, always wanted to produce a road car that would rival the best in the world. In 1969, he drew up plans to produce road-going cars that were essentially slightly modified Can-Am race machines. These were called the M6GT and M12GT. However, they never amounted to much... ...with only a few prototypes created. His dream was finally realized in the 1990s with perhaps the greatest sports car of all time. Designed by Gordon Murray and equipped with the company's racing know-how, the McLaren F1 road car was born. The car shown here is the McLaren F1 GTR, a race version of the legendary road car. The stock F1 was so powerful that for Le Mans, the engine had to be detuned from 618 HP to 592 HP to comply with regulations. The McLaren F1 powerplant was built by BMW... ...which allowed the F1 GTR to also be raced by BMW's works teams. It has become one of the most popular of the F1 collection of BMW works racers.

  • Ford Mustang Boss 429 '69 This is the legendary Mustang equipped with the Boss 429 Ford race engine. You may have heard the 427 "side oiler" engine used by Ford in the 1960s. It also powered classic models like the GT40 and the Shelby 427 Cobra. This Mustang BOSS 429 engine is the successor to the 427 and was developed as part of Ford's push into NASCAR. The street-legal version of the BOSS 429 produced a conservative 375 hp, while the race version pumped out 560 hp. NASCAR regulations required 500 of these engines to be mass produced. After fulfilling NASCAR's homologation requirement, the Mustang BOSS 429 ended its production run in just two years. (tags #Road Car)
  • Ferrari 250 GTO '62 This 250 GTO is one of the last Ferraris to combine the characteristics of road cars and racing cars. It's not the rarest Ferrari of them all, and maybe there are fairer models around, But if you like good stories, I'm sure you'll become fond of this car! Even if you include the 330 GT and the series 2 cars, Only 39 of these 250 GTOs were built in total. and each one of them has its own unique tale. This car, chassis number 3729GT, is a right-hand drive built for the UK. It was purchased by Jaguar dealer and race car driver John Coombs, and it was originally white but painted red in 1966. Really famous drivers including Graham Hill, Richie Ginther and Mike Parkes, drove this car in the UK during the 1960s. It was later owned and raced by the British racing driver Jack Sears for several years. Since 1999 it's been owned by former Microsoft President and chief operating officer, John Shirley. The price of this particular car takes this long storied history into account. (tags #Racing Car)
  • Shelby Cobra 427 '66 Carroll Shelby, who won at Le Mans and even competed in Formula 1, was one of America's greatest car enthusiasts...... who has a permanent place in automotive history. After he retired from driving, Shelby became a constructor, with a focus on developing road cars that could win races. The 'Cobra' is one of the iconic cars produced by Shelby. First production lots were shipped out in the spring of 1963, and were initially powered by Ford's 260 CID engine, which were soon replaced by the 289 CID unit. And the legendary Cobra 427 was introduced in 1964. The Cobra 427 was powered by a 7L Ford 427, which was an engine selected by Shelby with the aim to defeat Ferrari in competition. With their proven competition pedigree and aggressive looks, big block Cobras are sought after by car enthusiasts all over the world. (tags #Road Car)
  • Toyota 2000GT '67 One of the great masterpieces of Japanese car design, Toyota's 2000GT ranks among the most beautiful GT cars in history. When it debuted in 1967, it sold for a little over two million yen, which was approximately $6800 at the time. Today It would fetch high 6 figures in dollars. A minor design modification in 1969 also divides the 2000GTs into early models and late models. The 2000GT competed in numerous speed trials where it set records, and it was even raced by Carroll Shelby in 1968. All in all, it's a fabulous car, and one which you can enjoy owning for many years.

  • Alpine A220 Race Car '68 It's hard to believe that a Le Mans prototype also competed in rallies. Well, it really did happen. Let me introduce you to the Alpine A220. It's a successor to the Alpine M series, which performed well at Le mans in the 1960s. It features a mid-mounted 3L V8 engine designed by Gordini... but unfortunately it never made much of a mark at Le Mans. However it would go on to compete in the world of rallying which was a fairly unique challenge for such a car. This specific car has a dramatically shortened tail for rallying which makes it especially rare. (tags #Racing Car #Midship)
  • AMG 300 SEL 6.8 AMG '71 This 300 SEL 6.8 AMG should be seen as an important part of AMG's success story. AMG started as a company that built competition vehicles based on Mercedes-Benz cars. It was established by former Daimler-Benz engineer Hans Werner Aufrecht... ...and Erhard Melcher. The name of the brand comes from the combination of "A" for Aufrecht, "M" for Melcher... ...and "G" for Grossaspach, the home town of Aufrecht. The 300 SEL 6.8 AMG competed in the 24 Hours of Spa in 1971, where it won its class and finished 2nd overall. This result which really put AMG on the map. Mercedes-Benz owners flocked to AMG to have their cars tuned by the company. AMG's fame spread from there, becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz in 2005. (tags #Racing Car)
  • Jaguar XJR-9 '88 Despite their early success in the 1950s, Jaguar didn't enter a works team at Le Mans again for almost 30 years. In fact, they wouldn't return to the race until 1986, when they entered the XJR-6. The XJR-6 was designed by Tony Southgate, who had made his name in Formula 1, and it was powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine. It was the heyday of turbocharged cars, and the XJR-6's uniquely high-pitched exhaust note was instantly recognizable. The sight and sound of a Jaguar tearing around the track once more certainly got the fans excited! Two years later, Jaguar entered the XJR-9 and finally won at Le Mans, for their first new victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans since an Ecurie Ecose D-Type won in 1957. It had been more than thirty years since their last win! That alone is enough to secure this iconic car's place in the annals of racing history! (tags #Racing Car #Le Mans #Midship)
  • Mazda RX500 '70 The Mazda RX500 is a supercar that is nothing short of mythical. It was built in 1970 for the 50th anniversary of Toyo Kogyo, known as Mazda today, and displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show. This RX500 was conceived as a successor to the famed 'Cosmo Sport' of the 1960s. Unlike the Cosmo Sport however, its rotary engine was not mounted in front but positioned rear-midship. And this rotary engine was a high rpm type that would rev up to 14,000 rpm. With 247 HP and weighing only 1874 lbs, the RX500 was an extremely fast car. Only one RX500 was ever built as a concept model, and in 2008 it was restored by Mazda to its original glory. (tags #Road Car #Midship)
  • Renault R8 Gordini '66 Amédée Gordini was a legendary tuner of Renault and Simca cars, and perhaps best known for his achievements at Le Mans. He was a hard working Frenchman who even went on to become an F1 race car constructor - basically, a genius. For many years, Gordini partnered with Renault to produce performance versions of the company's mass market cars. This Renault 8 Gordini is one such example and probably the most popular of the official collaborations. The fact it's almost twice as powerful as the base model just goes to show what a genius tuner Gordini really was. The classic blue paint with white stripes, V-shaped bonnet and boxy styling still has legions of fans to this day! (tags #Racing Car)
  • Nissan R92CP '92 This Nissan R92CP is teh fastest Group C racing car of them all. It really is an absolute beast, reacing 400km/h on Fuji Speedway's long straight. Group C races used to be extremely popular in Japan in their day, The year after the FIA World Endurance Championship was created, Japan had already set up its own endurance racing series. This series was initially dominated by Porsche, but Nissan and Toyota quickly grew stronger to become its top contenders. The R92CP - designed by Nissan's Kazutoshi Mizuno and built entirely in-house, was developed for the former C1 class, and its level of maturity as well as its speed were way ahead of its competition. Even legendary drivers of Japan such as Kazuyoshi Hoshino and Masahiro Hasemi spoke of R92CP's acceleration with dread. (tags #Racing Car #Le Mans #Midship)
  • Mazda 787B '91 Do you know about the 1991 Le Mans 24 Hours? In the final year that rotary engines were allowed to compete, Mazda defied the odds and won in miraculous fashion. The winning race car was the 787B, powered by 4-rotor engine, which outlasted powerhouse rivals like Jaguar and Porsche. The victory was made even sweeter by the fact that Mazda became the only Japanese company to win the historic race. After a bad showing the previous year, no one expected the 787B to do well in 1991, qualifying in 19th position. However, the Mazda team was undeterred and ran a strategic and consistent race, taking the checkered flag. The drivers who accomplished the impossible were Volker Weidler, Johnny Herbert and Bertrand Gachot. After the race, the now-historic No. 55 car was safely stowed away to be preserved forever. Then, in 2011, the car was restored and returned to Le Mans for a demo run celebrating the 20th anniversary of its victory. (tags #Racing Car #Le Mans #Midship)

- AMG CLK-LM '98 (9642 Km) 6,250,000 Credits
It has the hashtag #Le Mans, so it might be the third car for "Three Legendary Cars" trophy but, there are no platinum achievers yet, so I guess it's not one of the necessary cars...
I personally bought it but, I didn't have the funds to buy the Ford Mark IV, so I can't confirm or deny.

Is it weird to anyone else that the Mazda 787B '91 added today has only 35km mileage? It did 362 laps of Le mans; A lap is around 9 miles. Is this a trick or did they forget something? maybe I'm missing something.

This is getting confusing now, it has the correct livery, and so does the Jag, but they both don't count. I have never seen a trophy be this mysterious before :lol:

On Apr 15, there was a massive influx of possible candidates for the three legendary cars trophy, and all of them didn't popped the trophy (787B, XJR-9, R92CP). So the 330P4 + XJ13 + Mark IV seems much more plausible at this point
"330P4 + XJ13 + Mark IV" - as I remember these cars are only which price was 20'000'000 in the GT5. So may be we need them again in the GT7

There is also an arrow (indicating price evolution?) besides some prices, and apparently (in your list I see that) prices can vary. Maybe it would be interesting to follow that up too? (not that I'm giving you extra work to do :-)
