Porsche 917K Gulf  fine car artwork by Luis Ferrera.

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.




If there is a beauty contest for racing liveries, Porsche 917K Gulf will be at least in top 3. The 917 was also spectacular piece of racing mechanics. With its flat-12 engine that pushed the car from 0 – 200 km/h in just 5.3 seconds, it set not just speed records but also brought the first overall wins for Porsche at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Sure, not all of the eleven variants of Porsche 917 were that fast and brutal. But 917K with racing #20 was the car that Steve McQueen drove at the Le Mans movie. It made the car instant celebrity from both sides of the Atlantic. The movie was shot at the 1970 competition and displayed in details the battle between 917K and Ferrari 512. Have you watched the movie, you`ll know how nice it would be to own an art print of this great car, stunningly represented by Luis Ferrara.
