Can-Am cars evolved at an incredible pace throughout the life of the series, a process driven by both the competition and its technical freedom. It didn’t take long for power outputs to grow and for performance to improve, to the extent that the fastest Can-Am cars were quicker than the Formula 1™ cars of the era.
The first car, M6A-1, was completed and ready for testing at Goodwood on June 19, 1967, more that three months prior to the opening race in the Can-Am series. The car covered over 2000 miles of testing before its debut at Elkhart Lake.
