I see that Fly are adding to their Steve McQueen Collection, with the Milt Minter, Chad McQueen and Gunnar Jeannette Toad Hall Porsche 911 GT1, as raced at Daytona last year.



The Gunnar Racing Porsche livery was done to promote the book "A French Kiss with Death - Making of LeMans" by Michael Keyser.



Subtitled "Steve McQueen and the Making of Le Mans: the Man, the Race, the Cars, the Movie", Keyser examines the life of actor Steve McQueen, the films in which he appeared, and his love affair with the many cars and motorcycles he owned during his lifetime.

Kind regards

See also The Speed Merchants (book and DVD) by the same author.

It was interesting to see that car run in that livery because the book has been out for at least a couple of years. The car, despite appearances, isn't a 'real' GT1, but Gunnar Motorsports re-roofed LMP car that has also provided the basis for the following liveries:









Does this make it the most re-liveried car to be modelled, or something?

Not until Fly produce the Gunnar G99!



I'm thinking of converting one of my Fly Racing Porsche 911 GT1s, if only I had the time!

Kind regards

Is this a record between posts?????? What was you thinking of diving back so far Mr Pace? However I must say I've never seen this awsome car before so I'm glad you did, does anyone have anymore info/pics on this racecar?

That book is FANTASTIC. Definitely a good book to curl up with for an evening. A lot of good hard information about racing in that era as well as the movie itself.
