1:24 Porsche 917K 1971 ver. B

The 917 was debuted in the 1969 prototype car race season, and modified by the John Wyer Automotive Engineering Ltd., by improving the aerodynamics in 1970, which was requested by Works, then the 917K with the short tail was born.
The 917K was so powerful and so fast to win the endurance races, the international constructors’ championship, and the 24-hour endurance race in Circuit de la Sarthe.
The strongest in endurance race at that moment, 917K (1971 version) will be the next 1/24 scale model from MFH.

After the 917K overwhelmed the 1970 endurance race season, the machine was further refined for the preparation of the next season. There was vertical fins installed at the rear cowl, injection pots were placed on the engine cover, and various modifications of the outlook were attempted by different teams. 4 version of this kit will be available based on different teams’ refinements.
