Art print inspired on Wolfgang Von Trips at the Nürburgring Nordschleife with Ferrari Dino 246.
In the early seventies the rally scene would suffer a major change with the arrival of some highly specialized cars. It all started with the Alpine A110, a low slung, lightweight car that made the most of some rather ordinary engines from Renault, beating easily all the rival factory teams. The then Lancia’s motorsport director Cesare Fiorio was impressed so he decided to go for a similar approach. Only months before, at the Turim Show, Bertone had shown a styling exercise based on Fulvia platform turned around, with the driver sitting ahead of the V4. The wedge style design was a bit too extreme but the final shape was still otherworldly. The Stratos body was an incredibly successful mixture of style and function. For the new car the V4 also had to be dropped in favor of something more powerful so Fiorio “borrowed” two Dino 246 from Modena and sent Sandro Munari and Rafaelle Pinto to the Col de Turini to see how much the standard “budget Ferrari” could match the times of the factory Alpines. The results were considered surprisingly good so the glorious sounding Ferrari engine went straight into the Stratos to complete what was a dream package. This art print by artist Susana Real shows a bird’s eye view of Sandro Munari’s car from the 1976 Rally of Portugal, of which they came victorious. This artwork is available on high quality photo paper or Decoboard: a rigid surface made of high quality paper applied over a 12mm lightweight PVC board and finished with a UV-proof protecting varnish for long lasting colors. This technique requires no frames providing a decoration effect similar to a canvas print. Decoboard can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
- Care instructions: Paper prints must be framed and kept safe from humidity or direct sunlight. Decoboard can be cleaned with a mildly damp cloth. Decoboard varnish is UV-resistant.
