This 917's paint job in the Gulf Oil colors is eye-catching, but its performance is just as remarkable. In the 1,000-kilometer race at Spa-Francorchamps in 1971, Pedro Rodriguez and Jackie Oliver drive it to a new record that might last forever: they achieve the incredible average speed of 249.069 km/h. This 917 earns the nickname "Taxi" because for many years it is used to take prominent visitors in Weissach for a ride.
