Another camera car

One of my Christmas presents from Louise is a very rare Fly model of a Porsche 917K in Gulf livery.
This is part of a limited edition series of cars issued a few years back to commemorate the making of the classic Steve McQueen film "Le Mans".

The car was driven by Vic Elford for high speed filming on the Mulsanne Straight with a film camera mounted on the bonnet, which made for very interesting handling characteristics!
