We usually don't cover such stories here on WCF but this has managed to impress us a lot. Although you can't really tell from these two photos, this is actually a 1:1 replica of the Porsche 917 concealing a 1:32 Le Mans raceway replica. The car has the same color paint and #20 race number as a throwback to the 1971 movie starring Steve McQueen.
It comes with authentic race-worn GT prototype tires mounted on three-piece aluminum wheels. Headlights and taillights are functional, while at the touch of a button the car opens like a clamshell to reveal the race circuit that has been faithfully reproduced. The expensive "toy" comes bundled with 12 limited-edition slot cars painted in realistic period livery.
It weighs 800 lbs (363 kg) and measures 13 1/2' L x 7 1/2' W x 3' H.
