Incredibly rare original 1971 “Le Mans” film poster. This stunning original Japan B2 film poster is quite frankly one of the best posters (whatever the country) available for this iconic McQueen movie…Originally rolled this example presents near perfectly; Genuinely scarce and becoming very hard to find due to the very limited release in it’s day. Now an iconic and much admired sports film showing just why Steve McQueen was the true King of Cool…Highly recommended and genuinely scarce in such outstanding high grade condition; a personal favourite not only for being one of the best cinematic images of McQueen but also as a huge watch collecting buff it’s great to see him sporting the historic TAG Heuer “Monaco” chronograph. This example with it’s country unique Japanese design represents a fantastic example of McQueen, motor-racing, horological & cinematic memorabilia .

“Racing’s important to men who do it well. When you’re racing, it’s life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting”

Trivia: The crashing Porsche 917 and Ferrari 512 were actually outdated Lola T70’s ‘made up’ to look like a 917 and a 512, since it was out of the question to sacrifice one of these priceless cars. The fake Ferrari was remote-controlled.
