One of the most iconic racing liveries is back where it belongs - on a racing-spec Porsche.
The Martini Racing livery is one of our all-time favorites. But while the iconic color scheme and logo have adorned rally, endurance and F1 racers from Lancias and Lotuses to Ferraris and Fords, there’s no automaker it’s more intrinsically tied to than Porsche. The livery first appeared on the Porsche 906 in 1968, and went on to adorn the 917 and Carrera RS, among many others. But while it hasn’t been seen on a new racing car in about five years now, it’s coming back – on a Porsche, of course.
In celebration of its 150th anniversary, Martini is sponsoring a new 911 GT3 Cup to be driven by none other than nine-time rally champion Sebastien Loeb in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup at Catalunya and Monte Carlo. While we’re glad to see such an accomplished driver taking part, we’re more happy to see the Martini Racing livery back on the race track where it belongs.
