Description

Amalgam Porsche 917K 1:18 scale #22. 1971 Le Mans winner.

This fine 1:18 scale model of the Porsche 917K is based on the #22 car driven to victory by Dutch driver Gijs van Lennep and Austrian racer Helmut Marko at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1971. With the ban for over 3.0 litre engine displacements imminent, the race turned into quite the swansong; a long, fast track and extended good weather produced the fastest race in the event’s history to date. There were not many accidents this year, but many cars were delayed or forced to retire due to mechanical problems so only twelve cars were classified as finishers. The Team Martini Porsche at the front of these finished two laps ahead of its rival John Wyer Porsche and an incredible 29 laps (386km) ahead of the third place Ferrari. The two Porsches were the first cars to cover over 5000km at Le Mans, a record that would stand for 39 years, cementing the 917K’s dominance over this era of motorsport.

This model has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Porsche regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.

A brand new series from Amalgam in 1:18 scale. The model is a ‘kerbside’ model with beautiful paint finish and a totally accurate recreation, including the use of original finishes, materials, images and drawings.
Amalgam’s 1:18 models are the finest quality and accurately detailed ‘kerbside’ models available anywhere in the world.

The model sits on a superb quality black plinth with a plaque detailing the model, containing a leather bound folder with notepad and model details. Finished off perfectly with a perspex cover with Amalgam metal corners.
