Porsche 911 – Hellgelb

This time, a 1971, 911. This car is in the unmissable colour, Hellgelb or “light yellow”. Beginning life as a 911-T this car was specified with the lighter body for racing and also had the “S engine” fitted along with a roll cage at the factory. These extras were ordered for the car to be used as a single seat racer.

Since then, having never actually seen a race track, it was road registered in 1974. The car is now used and enjoyed for fast road driving and trips to local car shows. You may even be lucky enough to spot both cars at various East Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club (EYTCC) meets throughout the summer.

The Vredestein Sprint Series tyres are a modern tyre produced to give a classic and truly authentic “period look”. The tyres use the latest tyre technology and are built to modern quality standards. The Sprint Classic is specifically designed for use on all cars for classic motoring enthusiasts.

Since its launch the tread profile design has remained unchanged. The only addition to the looks has been to the sidewall with changes to the sidewall markings. Beneath the traditional looks, there is a high technology tyre capable of producing modern performance levels of grip, comfort and safety and wear.
