There are a lot of race car fanatics that enjoy the sport, as well as, collecting car racing mementos. Whether it is to relive the rush that comes when watching cars compete or to envision themselves as the driver speeding down the track, collecting items of cars is one that many revel in. If you are one of these enthusiasts and have $125,000 to spend, then the Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway may be the latest addition to your growing car collection.
The Porsche 917 is a life-sized replica that pays homage to the 1971 film starring Steve McQueen with the #20 race number and car color scheme. It comes complete with working headlights and taillights and has genuine race-worn GT prototype tires on aluminum three-piece rims.
If that wasn’t amazing enough, with a press of a button, the top-half of the molded car replica opens up revealing a 1:32-scale, working wooden slot car track. The track is a miniature-sized version of the iconic Le Mans raceway with realistic details such as, working streetlights, weathered wooden posts, the Marchal sign on the famous three-level grandstand over pit row, the Martini barn, the Esso Oil Drop Man near the Ford chicane, aluminum Armco guardrails and the well-known Dunlop “tire” bridge.
This amazing Porsche 917 replica also comes with dual analog racing controllers you can use to take control of one of the twelve included limited-edition slot cars, which also consist of racing models from 1970-1971, painted in authentic period livery.
If you are able to purchase this $125,000 replica then it is one you certainly should have amongst your collection, which is sure to make all your friends ooze with envy.
