1970 Porsche 917K From Steve McQueen’s Le Mans Is Going Up For Auction 23

Gooding & Company has announced plans to auction off an extremely rare 1970 Porsche 917K that was used in Steve McQueen’s racing epic Le Mans.

Perhaps one of the most famous race cars in the world, this 917K was first used by Porsche during the 1970 Le Mans test session where it set the fastest time in the event with Brian Redman behind the wheel. The successful test paved the way for a Le Mans victory two months later.

Following some additional tests, the car was sold to Porsche factory driver Jo Siffert. Siffert, in turn, leased the car to Steve McQueen’s Solar Productions for use in the 1971 film Le Mans. The car not only starred in the movie but was also used as a camera vehicle since it was one of only a handful of models which could keep up with the racing action.

When filming concluded, the car was returned to Siffert and it remained in his collection until his death in 1971. The car was eventually sold to a private collector from Paris a few years later.

The car was largely forgotten until it was rediscovered in 2001 in remarkably original condition. The car has since been restored and is being billed as “one of the most correct and significant 917s in existence and easily one of the finest racing cars ever to come to public auction.”

Lexus Takes A Closer Look At The SkyJet In Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets 20

Lexus is celebrating its involvement in the upcoming movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets by taking a closer look at the SkyJet featured in the film.

Jointly created with director Luc Besson and his design team, the SkyJet is a “single-seat pursuit craft” that features a spindle grille and headlights that draw inspiration from the Lexus LC coupe.

Since the film is set 700 years in the future, the design team had to envision a high-tech interior influenced by Lexus’ research into artificial intelligence and advanced human-machine-interface (HMI) technologies. Lexus says this could involve everything from simple hand gestures to the LF-FC concept’s hologram technology.

Lexus even influenced the SkyJet’s powertrain as it uses hydrogen fuel cell technology which isn’t too far removed from the system in the LF-FC concept.

In a statement, Lexus Chief Engineer said “Technology will constantly advance and many things far in the distant future are impossible to be certain of now, however, at Lexus, we continuously challenge ourselves to imagine them.”

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets will hit theaters on July 21st and the film stars Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, and Clive Owen.
