Silver Stallion Racing For Victory
Tour de France Automobile / 11-20 September 1964
In a race that covered the whole of France—a road section of 6000 kilometers, 9 hill climbs, and 10.5 hours of racing on every famous circuit in the country—two Belgians took home gold for the Italians in a Ferrari.
Here we see the winning team of Lucien Bianchi and Georges Berger in their silver and yellow 250 GTO, fight for position over Claude Dubois and Marquis Philippe de Montaigu, somewhere in the French countryside.
More about this artwork
Each car is built from scratch, according to the model’s exact historic specifications.
We always strive to depict the car’s authentic racing condition – including any dirt and damage.
The preparation of each car takes 2 highly specialized artists up to 2 months to complete.
Countless hours are necessary to rebuild the car in the exact same condition it used to be.
External film crew, professional make up artists, periodic costumes and other elements are key when it comes to our photo shoots.
Authentic props are another important factor when recreating the past.
Only at the Tour de France racetrack do you get to see beautiful locations like this.
Authenticity is key! Every artwork is based on countless hours of research and reference material to make sure we rebuild the car exactly the way it was.
Every piece needs to be manually rebuilt to perfection in order to get to this level of detail.
Lots of patience, and a passion for detail, is key for this standard of artwork.
