What's your favourite?

A few suggestions:-
-Gulf
-Marlboro McLaren
-Ferrari Red
-JPS Lotus
-Camel Lotus

I think mine would be the Marlboro McLaren red and white.

My favourites
First up is Herve Poulain's BMW Batmobile that started the series of BMW Art Cars. Poulain was a Paris based art dealer that ran as at Le Mans in the 1970's. His car was getting a little long in the tooth so in an attempt to get more publicity he got an up and coming Parisian artist to design a colour scheme for the car.

It failed at mid distance but was the talk of the town that year. It its still actively racing and looks stunning in action. A Le Mans regular, it si owned by a French collector.

Image

And my other nomination is the 1970 Le Mans Martini entered Porsche 917 Langcheck, commonly known as the 'Hippie car'
Not the best picture but all I have. Again its still activly raced and is currently for sale in the states.
