There are three Porsche 917s in this image. Number 22, driven by the team of Helmut Marko and Gijs van Lennep, took the trophy with 397 laps. Number 19, piloted by Richard Attwood and Herbert Müller, came in second at 395.

These two 917K’s may have won Le Mans in 1971, but it was number 23 (a 917/20) that won history—and it didn’t even finish. Named the "Pink Pig” for its peculiar body modifications and pink paint job (complete with carving lines), the car was crashed by its driver, Reinhold Joest, halfway through the race.

Porsche, as a brand, dominated Le Mans that year representing more than half of the entries and taking 10 of the 13 finishes, so it’s odd that one of their failures dominated the headlines.

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.
Piggyback 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.

PRINT TECHNOLOGY

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.
