The Porsche 917/20 takes a special place among the various 917 versions. It remains a unique one-off. Porsche engineers together with the Porsche designer Anatole Lapine decided in favour of the pink body colour and labelled each of the body parts according to the butcher-style French company SERA undertook the attempt to combine the advantages of the short and long tail 917. Its body was extremely wide and it had extremely rounded wheel cut-outs. As the track width remained unchanged, the wheels were hidden deeply in the wheel housings. The nose was equally low and flat like that of the new long-tail coupé, but shorter.
But the best part was the fanciful paintwork which let the 917/20 go down in Porsche history as the "Pink Pig", "Big Berta" or even "Truffle Hunter". cuts. Porsche caused a sensation at Le Mans 1971 with the Pink Pig. It was the fastest car during the pre-race qualification session, although it was totally untested. But during the main race, the 917/20 running in fifth position dropped out shortly before the end due to an accident.
Format Print : 48 x 64/61 x 71 cm. Overall Size.

As a young boy, the sight of an RAF squadron flying over Nicholas Watts' house sparked a passion for capturing a moment in time. Early classroom sketches of dogfights, aerial battles, Spitfires and Hurricanes, developed into a mastery of technical art. He was soon channeling his artistic flair into his first ever car commission, a Bugatti Type 37A. Nicholas Watts has a passionate and atmospheric style in his work.
