German Engineering, Hollywood Ending

The rain poured down for much of the 1970 Le Mans, but that wasn’t enough to keep the movie cameras away. Much of the action from the race was used in the 1971 Steve McQueen film of the same name; with the Porsche 917 playing a supporting role.

Here we see the 917K, driven by the team of Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood, cruising through the deluge on their way to claim Porsche’s first-ever win at Le Mans.

Hermann, who was 43 at the time, promised his wife before the race that if he won, he would immediately retire from racing. He had only been half-joking, but after having witnessed too many tragic deaths in the past, and having just earned the most dramatic win of his career, he decided to make good on his promise and finish his career with a happy ending.

Magic behind our work

RESEARCH AND CONCEPT

Every image we create is based on a real-life historical event, so to assure accuracy, we put in long hours of research to piece together every little detail.
German Engineering, Hollywood Ending research and concept phase

3D MODELLING AND 3D SCANNING

Once the concept is established, a 3D model is created using computer-generated imagery. Studying every piece of reference material available, Automobilists’ artists, then, digitally rebuild the vehicle from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer with painstaking detail – even down to the last coat of paint.

PHOTOSHOOT

With pre-production complete, it’s time to go on-location and start shooting photographs. This stage can last for several days and involves crews of up to 70 people, depending on the concept. The highest grade of professional equipment is used to ensure the highest quality and resolution images, and extensively detailed sets are also built when required.

We only use the very best Epson fine art printers, and premium Hahnemühle paper due to its fine texture, which guarantees long-lasting colour and saturation.
