Porsche 917 Gulf & Martini livery art

We love them all but we have a deep crush on Porsche 917 in Gulf and Martini livery. The Gulf Oil Corporation vivid blue and orange colors turned 917 #20 into supernova celebrity by Steve McQueen and his epic Le Mans movie. The Martini livery Porsche 917 #21 depicted on this very art is the first vehicle that breached the 150 mph average speed at Le Mans. The art we are proudly presenting here is emitting record-breaking speed by blowing its paint.

This Porsche Gulf & Martini livery art is capturing sheer speed blowing your mind

The Porsche 917 #21 in Martini livery on top of silver paint is the chassis No 042. It is in its Langheck (LH) form made for sheer speed. Its first race was at 1969 Le Mans and it was piloted by Vic Elford and Richard Attwood. “I fell in love with the 917 when I went to the auto show at Geneva in March [1969]. It was upon the pedestal, it was big and gorgeous, a wonderful car, and I immediately fell in love with it. I then started lobbying Piëch to have one for Le Mans,” Elford said in an interview. Unfortunately, the car retired after 21 hours due to a split housing when it was 6 laps ahead of the second. A year later, in 1970 this very car was piloted by Elford teamed up with Kurt Ahrens. In qualifying that year, Ahrens set the quickest time with 3:19.8 min at an average speed of 150.798 mph. This way, Porsche 917 LH Martini #21 with chassis number carved its name in motorsports history. Unfortunately, it did not finish due to inlet valve failure. Today, this car is part of the Porsche Museum Exhibition. The Porsche 917 #20 and chassis No 024 in Gulf livery on the right is the car that was depicted on the Le Mans movie by Steve McQueen. Now this car is the centerpiece of the Jerry Seinfeld automotive collection. In the movie, Steve McQueen crashes Porsche 917 Gulf #20 but in reality, it was a Lola in Porsche clothing. Later he switches to Porsche 917 Gulf #21, in which he crosses the line in second place after a wheel-to-wheel battle with his Ferrari rival.
