1/6 1970 Porsche 917K.
This is a huge replica of the Gulf sponsored Porsche 917 K driven by Jo Siffert & Brian Redman at 1970 Le Mans. The very same liveried 917 was driven by Steve McQueen in the movie Le Mans.
This is a very large scale hand built model measuring nearly 3 feet long (32″ / 81cm). It is complete with opening doors, engine and hood. Back around 2010, a tiny edition of 25 were supposed to be built by a private artisan in France, but in the end, less than 15 were constructed. Each model is made from over 1200 parts – roughly 600 resin and 600 metal. This is the largest most detailed vintage Porsche model made. It is complete with wood base and plexiglass cover, measuring 33 x 17 x 11.5″.
- Note – the entire series is now sold out, we have just one left!
