I saw this in the GT5 Wishlist thread but not in Suggestions: 1911 Marmon Wasp The car that won the first Indy 500, Ray Harroun's six-cylinder Marmon Wasp sported a host of interesting details. First, it offered a cowled cockpit and a streamlined tail, something most racers of the era did without. Second, it featured a dashing black-and-yellow p aint scheme. And third, it boasted a dazzling driver-awareness innovation: a rear-view mirror. Duly equipped, Harroun was one of the first drivers to race without a riding mechanic watching for cars from behind. When he won the 1911 500, he was 29 years old. The feat took him six hours, 42 minutes, and eight seconds — average speed 74.6 mph.
