Limited to just 5 in a special display and with metal plaque numbered 1 – 5, this artwork features a 1:43 replica of the #70 1979 Porsche 935 car that was an IMSA race winner at Le Mans in 1979 and was driven by actor and racing driver Paul Newman! With it’s renowned Hawaiian Tropic livery, this car achieved a dramatic win with Paul at the wheel, and as such is a beautiful example of classic, Motorsport memorabilia.

The art frame features an extremely rare high-quality 1:43 Spark scale replica model car, presented in a 12-inch X 10-inch deep handmade wooden box frame with glass aperture cover and a custom limited edition design, detailing key information about this historic race car.

These beautiful examples were created by Mulsanne Moments creator James Garlick based on a lifetime obsession with Motorsport. Each piece is hand-made and is intended as an affordable piece of automobilia that preserves the story of each car and its driver(s).

Porsche’s 935 Turbo was a highly-modified variant of the 930 ‘Flacbau’ or Flatnose aka slantnose road car. It dominated endurance racing in the late 70s, entered by many Porsche privateer teams all over the world. The German Kremer-team won the 24 Hours of Le Mans using a modified version of the 935, but it was Actor Paul L Newman that stole the show and indeed the history and headlines, driving with Rolf Stommelen and Dick Barbour, to finished second in Dick Barbour Racing’s 935, winning the IMSA class!
