🗃 Sports Car
In 1965 Matra's CEO Jean-Luc LagardÃ¨re decided to develop a successor to the Matra Djet that was more appealing to the non-racing public - a voiture des copains (car for chums). The result was the Matra M530, the first "true" Matra sports car, the Djet having been a RenÃ© Bonnet design. The car was named after Matra's R.530 missile, and was designed by former Simca designer Philippe GuÃ©don.
