Porsche has unveiled the three liveries that the 919 Hybrid will use at Le Mans.

First up, the #17 car sports a red livery that pays tribute to the 917 KH (short-tail) that won the legendary endurance race 45 years ago.  It will be driven by Timo Bernhard (34, Germany), Brendon Hartley (25, New Zealand) and Mark Webber (38, Australia).

Moving on, the #18 car has a black exterior that recalls the black 918 Spyder which set a Nürburgring lap record of 6 minutes and 57 seconds back in 2013.  The car will be driven by Marc Lieb (34, Germany), Romain Dumas (37, France) and Neel Jani (31, Switzerland).

Last but not least, the #19 car will be sporting a familiar black and white livery.  It will be driven by Earl Bamber (24, New Zealand), Nico Hülkenberg (27, Germany) and Nick Tandy (30, Great Britain).

According to Porsche, "The livery of a race car is a science in itself. It should highlight design and proportions, cover design secrets and it must look good when the car runs at high speeds."
