Award-winning creative studio INK presents the latest addition to ‘Plain Bodies’ - a series of
CGI artworks inspired by iconic cars in the racing hall of fame. Following the inimitable Porsche 959 is its analog predecessor: the 911 Rally.
The 911 Rally was designed and built for a single purpose: to compete at the 1984 Paris-Dakar. In its first and only attempt, the car was driven to a stunning victory by René Metge and Dominique Lemoyne. The model had a limited life span, but its performance at the infamous rally and its nostalgic charm is timeless. A car with an iconic character, the 911 Rally is full of quirky details. The model driven by Jacky Ickx has handwritten notes over the dials, and is said to contain a secret switch connected to the tail lights so competitors would be unable to track his trail at night. Small traces of a former way of thinking in automotive engineering lie encased within its metal shell, symbolizing nostalgia for a bygone era of racing; before a wave of technological advancement affected individuality in capability and design. The CGI artwork created in-house is part of a series which combines a passion for design, iconic race cars and uncomplicated art direction. INK’s rendition presents the Porsche 911 Rally in the distinctive ‘Plain Bodies’ aesthetic, stripped back, emphasising its singular sextuplet headlights.
