Audi R18 art print by Yahn Yanou.

Carefully produced with our giclée process to maximize color accuracy and resolution. At Simply Petrol, we use the highest-quality Hahnemühle fine art paper (315 gsm) with delicate texture and acid-free surface.

Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed to saturate the fibers of the watercolor paper, resulting in pure, rich color and remarkable detail.

Size 70 x 40 cm. Limited edition print. One out of 100.


This Audi R18 Le Mans art print is glowing hot red as no other painting exhibited at Simply Petrol. The R18 is pouring energy just like it did during the 2012 24h of Le Mans. The champion vehicle of World Endurance season 2012, Audi R-18. The portrayed car #2 has been driven by Allan McNish, Tom Kristensen and Rinaldo Capello.

In that particular season they won the 12 Hours of Sebring. They were extremely close to 1st at Le Mans. McNish made contact with another car, causing a lengthy final pit stop for nose repair which gave car #2 the second place.

Actually the Audi R18 won the Le Mans with another drivers team.  That was the first AWD hybrid racing car that won the event. The organizers of the event, Automobile Club de l’Ouest, voted R18 as one of the most significant endurance racing cars ever made.



Yahn Janou graduated in 1992 from Art Center College of Design with a bachelor of science in automobile design. Since 1993, he paints exclusively racing cars and racing scenes, and aims to capture the excitement of the pits, the qualifying, the final moments before the start… His intention is to convey the exuberance of the teams and the intensity of the connection between man and machine. In his own words: ‘The racing car is at the center of my work, it represents power, speed, technology, elegance, and, in being unique, exclusivity. The tendency of some of my work towards abstraction reflects a choice to communicate the emotion of the moment rather than to simply reproduce reality.’

He exhibits regularly both in Europe and in the United States at major international events like Pebble Beach, Goodwood, Cavallino Classic, Essen and Rétromobile.

He has also created posters for various important events like The 24 Hours of Le Mans and has worked for a number of major car makers like Ferrari, Audi and BMW.
