Racing Tall

Aug 07, 2009 No Comments by

Porsche’s 917 series was the successor in the sports car racing kingdom when Ford retired its GT40 program. Made famous in the 1971 film “Le Mans,” the long-tail racers were making waves before winning Le Mans in 1970 and ’71. AUTOart offers a number of 917s (including the Steve McQueen model). For sports car racing enthusiasts, the Elford/Ahrens no.16 that won the 1970 Sebring race holds a special place, as it was part of the field that produced the most memorable finish in sports car racing on American soil. Just as memorable is the AUTOart no.16. This is a stunning piece of racing history that will command instant attention in any display. Every detail is first-rate, especially the all-business racing interior and lifelike racing tires. The rear tail flips forward to reveal the flat-12 engine that could propel the 917K to speeds in access of 240mph.
