The Fastback GT Truffelhunter commemorates the outlandish livery of the 917/20. A Stuttgart born one-off prototype developed to race as an aerodynamics test car at the 24 hours of LeMans in 1971.
The track car’s extreme width, shortened length, and deep, rounded wheel wells inspired the factory design team to create the now-legendary pink body color, butcher-cuts style graphics and nickname the car “Truffelhunter” aka “Pink Pig.”
The Truffelhunter made a single appearance at LeMans, crashing shortly before the end of the competition due to brake failure. Despite not finishing the race, the cars strikingly unique livery won the hearts and minds of motorsports fans around the world.
The Truffelhunter is a Limited Edition of 500 pieces.
