The greatest endurance racer immortalised in resin

From the imagination of mechanical engineer and former race car driver Vince Rago, based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, this Porsche 962 resin sculpture is a modern-day interpretation of one on the most iconic motorsport racers in the world…

Resin is all the rage

Rareforms’ automotive sculptures are based on a design that’s been 3D-printed, sanded, filed, sprayed, and then made into a silicon mould, in which resin is poured and set. The resulting model is then painted and finished by hand. Based on historically significant vehicles, although not exact replicas, these sculptures convey the fundamental lines and underlying spirit of each car. The newest sculpture by Rareforms is the Porsche 962 — a historically significant car to say the least, which won the World Sportscar Championship in 1985 and 1986, the IMSA GT Championship every year from 1985 to 1988, the Interserie Championship from 1987 to 1992, all four years of the Supercup series (1986 to 1989), the All Japan Sports Prototype Championship from 1985 to 1989, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1986 and 1987. The Rareforms 962 sculpture can be finished in one of 10 colours and is limited to 199 pieces, priced at 149 CAN dollars each.
