New Porsche Designs Mark 60th Anniversary of Le Mans Debut

Porsche fans will be delighted with the new selection of items from the Porsche design studio to mark the 60th anniversary of the manufacturer's Le Mans debut.

This year is also 41 years since Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood powered to Le Mans glory for the first time in their 917K Porsche, a year later Porsche set a distance record of 3,315 miles at an average speed of 138 mph.

And it is with this heritage in mind that the new Porsche Design Drivers Selection has been announced with the Porsche Team Salzburg livery of the 1970 winner adorning overnight bags (£125), wallets (£15), mugs (£15) and a glass coaster set (£40).

For diehard fans, Porsche have also revealed that a 1:43 scale model of the record breaking 1971 917KH  Le Mans winning car is available for just £40.

Martini Racing which has long been linked with Porsche since the classic win 40 years ago has also been honoured with designs featuring the livery from the car.

Customers willing to splash the cash will be able to buy polo and rugby shirts from £50, hooded shirts (£75), beach balls (£39) and beach towels (£45) for their summer getaway, all decorated with the Martini Racing colours.

Model fans will also be able to pick up a 1:43 scale of the 1976 Porsche 936 'Black Widow' racer along with all the other items from the 32 Porsche centres nationwide or online at
