Mercedes-Benz W125 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 14 x 14 inches with 1 inch white board. Limited edition print. One out of 100.



If you run for factory racing team would you withdraw at the middle of the season just  because of underperforming car?

Then would you give the task to an engineer that had no experience in racing? Well, whatever your answer, Mercedes-Benz did exactly this in 1936. Rudolf Uhlenhaut designed the W125 as pure beast. The supercharged 8-cylinder engine was able to produce 595 hp in race trim. The highest test power output measured for W125 was 637 hp. The truth is that this prewar Benz was the most powerful race car for about 3 decades. F1 cars achieved such power numbers in the early “turbo” `80s!



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.
