Yet another camera car

Extending my collection of cars used in filming famous motorsport movies, here is the second camera car used in Steve McQueen's Le Mans - a Porsche 908 Flunder in special packaging.

This car was Steve McQueen's personal Porsche 908/01 Spyder (chassis 908-022) in which he had achieved second place in the Sebring 12 hour race in 1970.  For filming at Le Mans later that year, the car was converted into a camera carrier and was equipped with three cameras, one in front and two at the back above the gearbox.

Here's the real car filming at Le Mans:

About time I watched the film again!

There is only one more slot car representation of a camera car that I'm aware of.  I've got my eye on it...
