Le Mans Porsche stars at motor show

Classic car fans can view the iconic Porsche 917 which starred in Steve McQueen's classic Le Mans movie at the Classic Motor Show this weekend.

As well as a superb racing CV, the classic motor is best remembered for being driven in the 1970 racing film.

Motor enthusiasts hoping to catch a glimpse of this revered vehicle can head to Birmingham's NEC for the show, which runs between Friday and Sunday (November 14-16).

The car won several famous races, such as the Monza 1000km and Daytona 24-Hour event. Leading drivers who have got behind her wheel include Richard Attwood, Jackie Oliver and Derek Bell.

The historic vehicle arrives from its resident Stavelot, Belgium-based Spa Museum and will be a cornerstone of the show's "Big Screen" theme.

Classic & Sport Car magazine is delivering the Porsche to its temporary Birmingham home.
