Porsche has unveiled the first special edition version of the new 911, called the Belgian Legend Edition. The special 911 has been created to celebrate Jacky Ickx’s 75th birthday. Not sure who he is? He’s one of the “greatest sports car drivers to have ever lived.”
Porsche created the 911 Belgian Legend Edition to not only celebrate the Belgian maestro’s 75th birthday, but also his contribution to Porsche’s sporting success through the Seventies and Eighties. The Belgian Legend Edition is based on the 911 Carrera 4S and is finished in a bespoke ‘X Blue’. It also features a badge showing the Belgian flag and Jacky Ickx’s signature on the driver-side B-pillar.
This X Blue color has also been added to the 20/21inch Carrera Classic wheels with subtle white accents that are inspired by Ickx’s helmet, which traditionally features a fine white line around the visor.
Inside the cabin is trimmed in black leather with Pebble Grey cross stitching on the dashboard, door panel and rear trim. The ‘X’ shape of the stitching also pays tribute to Ickx. The leather central armrest is embossed with Ickx’s autograph and the ‘Belgian Legend Edition’ moniker on the car’s carbon door sill guards. Lastly the color-matched key fob features the six-time Le Mans winner’s signature.
The 911 Belgian Legend Edition is strictly limited to just 75 units, one for each year since Ickx’s birth. If you want to get one, hopefully you live in Belgium, since it will only be available there.
