This most ambitious sculpture captures the size and racing-look of the fastest shark in our oceans.

 

This piece was specially created to show the artists passion for 917 Porsche endurance sports cars.

 

The ‘hippy porsche’ was the Martini Racing 917 LH with a 4.5 litre flat 12 engine, sponsored by Martini and painted in this unique 70’s psychedelic style, the car was driven to 2nd place in the 1970 Le Mans 24 hour race by Gerard Larrousse and Willi Kauhsen.

 

Engineering methods, materials and selected parts from modern F1 Grand Prix cars are used in the production of this sculpture.
