The Porsche 917K, crowned as the 1970 Le Mans winner, is a marvel of engineering and a symbol of racing excellence, particularly in its iconic Salzburg livery. This masterpiece on wheels, with its distinctive red and white colour scheme, represents a pivotal moment in Porsche’s storied racing history.

The 917K (Kurzheck, or "short-tail" in German) was developed for high-speed endurance racing, and its design is a perfect blend of power and aerodynamics. Under the hood, it boasts a formidable 4.5-liter, 12-cylinder engine capable of delivering an astonishing 580 horsepower, a remarkable feat for its era. This powerhouse enabled the car to achieve top speeds exceeding 240 mph, a staggering performance that dominated the racetracks.

The 1970 Le Mans victory was a defining moment for the 917K. Piloted by the skilled duo of Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood, the car showcased its exceptional capabilities in one of the most challenging motorsport events in the world. The race, known for its gruelling 24-hour duration, tests not just speed but reliability and efficiency, areas where the 917K excelled.

The Salzburg livery of the car, a vivid red with white stripes, is instantly recognizable and synonymous with racing triumph. It not only represents the high-speed prowess of Porsche but also signifies the brand's commitment to innovation and excellence in motorsport engineering.

Today, the Porsche 917K in Salzburg livery is revered as a legendary vehicle, a piece of motorsport history that continues to inspire and awe enthusiasts and collectors worldwide. Its legacy extends beyond the racetrack, symbolizing the spirit of endurance, the pursuit of perfection, and the sheer joy of high-speed racing.
