Richard Attwood, Derek Bell and Nick Tandy. Red, white and blue. In special honour of these three British racing drivers who each took historic wins in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Porsche is proud to announce the British Legends Edition - a limited series of 911 Carrera 4 GTS developed by the legends themselves and Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, available only in the UK.



Each British Legends Edition echoes the design language of the three unique race cars at their heart, and incorporates features selected especially by the British drivers who took them to victory. Identified by the number of their winning Porsche racing car and the colour scheme incorporated into the livery, the authenticity of each car is underlined by the motif of the driver’s signature.

With an unrivalled 19 wins, Porsche is the most successful manufacturer in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The first of these was in 1970 and 47 years later, this June saw the achievement of a remarkable hat trick 2015-2017 – a feat meaning the Porsche team will keep the Winners’ trophy forever.

In celebration of this success, and in special honour of three British racing drivers who helped deliver these victories, a special series of the 911 Carrera 4 GTS has been developed by Porsche Cars GB and Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur – the ‘British Legends Edition’.





These special 911 models pay homage to British race drivers Richard Attwood, Derek Bell and Nick Tandy, who each took historic wins in the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the factory Porsche team in 1970, 1982 and 2015 respectively. For each driver there is a unique 911 Carrera 4 GTS British Legends Edition, identified by the number of their winning Porsche racing car and its colour scheme incoporated into the livery.

The drivers played an important role in the design and configuration of their edition, incorporating personal preferences and experiences of racing with Porsche at Le Mans. Joint workshops between Porsche Cars GB and the drivers ensured their passion was built into each 911.

The influence of the distinctive livery of the race winning cars is clear in the colour choice of each 911 Carrera 4 GTS British Legends Edition:

1970 Le Mans winner, Richard Attwood

Porsche 917 #23 580 hp, flat-12 cylinder, 4.5-litre, 340 km/h top speed
‘Porsche Salzburg’ red and white livery
British Legends Edition Guards Red


1982 Le Mans winner, Derek Bell
Porsche 956 #1 680 hp, flat-six cylinder, twin-turbo, 2.8-litre, 350 km/h top speed
‘Rothmans’ blue, white, red and gold livery
British Legends Edition Sapphire Blue Metallic


2015 Le Mans winner, Nick Tandy
Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 #19 >900 hp, V4, single turbo, 360 km/h top speed
‘DMG MORI’ white, black, grey livery
British Legends Edition Carrara White Metallic

Guards Red: £122,376.00 inc VAT RRP
Sapphire Blue: £123,210.00 inc VAT RRP

Given their historical basis, I would have thought that both the red and blue cars should be manual not PDK and they should all come with one of Kimbo's liquid wraps as a no cost option.

Why didn't they give the cars the actual colour scheme of the race car Dont know

And seats was my first thought too, along with racing square style removable steering wheel and some sort of wing/duck tail Embarassed

And a small pit crew that lives in your garage and charges £25 to do your MOT at least Rolling Eyes
