Sauber Mercedes C9 art print by Evan DeCiren.

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.



This particular Le Mans art is beautifully telling the story of the Mercedes-Benz` come back at La Sarthe circuit. The Silver Arrows left endurance racing after the Le Mans disaster in 1955 that took life of 84 and 120 more were injured. Mercedes-Benz needed more than 40 years to start again contributing to the endurance racing and the brand made it with this very car. This Sauber Mercedes C9 art is praising its Le Mans victory in 1989 with Jochen Mass, Manuel Reuter and Stanley Dickens behind the wheel.

The glory days of Group C would not be the same without the Sauber Mercedes racing cars. The C9 was an evolution of the C8, keeping its aluminum monocoque structure with changes in suspension, body, and engine. The power plant was M177 Mercedes-Benz V8 with two turbochargers and almost 800 hp at 7000 rpm.


This Sauber Mercedes C9 art is the Silver Arrow your place desperately needs

The Sauber Mercedes C9 didn’t met with success immediately out of the gates. The car finished just three races in its first 1987 season. Though, the car` potential was clear when Johny Dumfries set a lap record at Le Mans before retiring with failure. The next season was way better but season `89 turned this car into a legend by winning all Championship titles – Team`, Constructor` and Driver`s. Sauber Mercedes C9 won all but one races from the calendar, including the gruesome Le Mans. Reaching 400 km/h during qualifying proved the car is among the fastest ever entered this competition. The C9`s achievement was only exceeded by Peugeot P88 which a year earlier made max speed as of 405 km/h.

Now you can own this piece of motorsports history turned into Sauber Mercedes C9 art created by Evan DeCiren and carefully issued by Simply Petrol.

Evan DeCiren was born and raised in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland in the humble family of a superbike mechanic. Naturally, he spent a lot of time in the camper of his father team Honda HRC during various competitions across Europe. Evan has developed a great affinity for comic art and since he was a kid, he wanted to be a designer. And succeeded in a spectacular way.

“I was always into comics – starting with the classic “Mickey Mouse” to the “Japanese Manga”. In ’96 when we went with the whole family to spend a month of our summer vacation being guests to a friend of my father who was Honda FCC engineer. The Japanese culture from here on will become an inspiration in my personal growth”, remembers Evan.

His story is also interesting because he has both mechanical and illustrator degrees. Think of him as the guy capable for both fixing and drawing vehicles. Initially, his comics` studies were influenced by the Japan manga comic style but latter he found inspiration in the design works of Mignola, Miller and Risso. They had helped Evan to form his unique and distinctive style.
