Porsche converted the last set of tyres from its 919 Hybrid that won Le Mans in 2017 into a record of the feasible kind. They pressed the tires into a vinyl record titled ‘The 24 Minutes of Le Mans’ that is a retelling of Porsche’s history at the 24-hour race. What a lifecycle.
While the original tyres are quite large for a motor vehicle, the amount of rubber is not excessive in terms of vinyl production value. The total amount of records that will be printed is limited to 200. Of these limited records, only 24 will be available to the public via an auction, so Porsche fans will have to hurry to get theirs!
