If we've said it once, we've said it a hundred times – but we'll gladly say it again: there are few racing liveries as iconic as Martini. And while those stripes have adorned countless Lancia and Ford rally cars, grand prix racers (like the latest Williams) and even speedboats, they remain inexorably tied to Porsche. Fortunately that point is not lost on Porsche itself, which has lately put them on its own 918 Spyder, race-spec 911 and all manner of merchandise. And this is the latest.

To celebrate its return to Le Mans this year, Porsche Exclusive is offering this special Martini Racing Edition. It's based on the 911 Carrera S, which means the more potent 3.8-liter flat six with 400 horsepower, but upgrades, as you might have guessed, with a whole mess of Martini Racing stripes and logos, along with the Aerokit Cup front and rear spoilers. The badges and stripes abound inside as well, where you'll also find such optional extras as the Porsche Communication Management system, Bose audio and black leather electric sport seats.

Porsche is offering the 911 Carrera S Martini Racing Edition in either white or black, but unfortunately not in our market – just in Europe, China and Latin America. Those who miss out will (in certain markets anyway) be able to order the decal set separately though. Feel free to read more in the press release below.

911 in traditional race outfit for Le Mans comeback by Porsche

Stuttgart. Porsche Exclusive is issuing the "Martini Racing Edition" of the 911 Carrera S to coincide with this year's 24 hours of Le Mans race. Marking the return of Porsche to endurance motorsport is a limited edition 911 in traditional Martini racing design, which reflects the styling of Porsche race cars of the 1970s. The 911 Carrera S pays tribute to the successes of the legendary Porsche Le Mans race cars such as the 917 and the 935 "Moby Dick". The special edition is limited to 80 units and will be exclusively sold in select markets of Europe, in China, Japan and in Latin America. For select 911 models, Porsche Tequipment will be selling the exclusive Martini decal set as an aftermarket kit in Germany and other markets.

The "Martini Racing Edition" of the 911 Carrera S is available in the monochrome body colours white and black. The boot lid, roof section, rear wing and vehicle's sides are accentuated by the "Martini Racing Design" decor set with the characteristic blue-red Martini colour pattern. The special front apron of the Aerokit Cup has an optimised spoiler lip which gives the vehicle an even more distinctive appearance. The aerodynamic counterpart is the fixed rear spoiler of the Aerokit Cup, which rounds out the car's sporty look.

When entering the car, the stainless steel door sill panels with the red illuminated "911 Carrera S – Martini Racing Edition" badge already identify this car as an exclusive limited edition. The interior package includes dashboard accents in body colour with the "Martini Racing Edition" badge. The Martini Porsche also has a sport design steering wheel and the Sport Chrono package as standard. The extensive standard equipment is complemented by such features as Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with navigation module, a Bose sound system, tachometer with black gauge dial and all-electric sport seats in black leather.

The heart that beats in the Martini Porsche is a 3.8-litre flat six-cylinder engine with 400 hp. This 911 matches the level of dynamic performance of the regular 911 Carrera S: The car accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds with a PDK gearbox and activated Sport Plus button. Its combined fuel consumption, on the other hand, is familiarly moderate at 8.7 litres per 100 km (CO2 emissions: 202 g/km).

Starting in June 2014, the Porsche 911 Carrera S "Martini Racing Edition" will launch in the European markets of Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Poland, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Finland and Great Britain. Starting in August 2014, the special edition will also be available in China, and from October 2014 in Japan and in Latin America.

911 Carrera S Martini Racing: Fuel consumption: urban 12.1 l/100 km; extra-urban 6.7l/100 km; combined 8.7l/100 km; CO2 emissions 202 g/km; efficiency class: G**

      I love the Martini Racing livery, but if I'm spending $100K on a car I don't want to drive around every day with those decals all over it.

        Just buy a regular 911 Carrera S, the only unique feature is the martini livery, everything else is available as an option on other 911's Or do a paint to sample and get something different.

        There's probably a "delete decal" option. If I'm spending over $100K, this is my 3rd/4th car and I won't the decals... I can wish.

        I would love them forever if they did that. Companies today need to have more fun and take themselves a little less seriously. Even showing up at Goodwood with a "Trüffel-Jager von Zuffenhausen" (truffle hunter of Zuffenhausen) livery on a 991 would be so cool. They wouldn't even need to make it available to the public.

      Imagine a Cayman or Boxster with that 400 horsepower 3.8 flat six. They could price it at $75k and still make their normal profit. If Porsche didn't suck, this would happen.

        You just got through will saving how great Porsche can be, then you go and claim the suck. What a strange, weird world of failed logic you live in.

      They really know how to cash in on nostalgia... slow clap people...slow clap... Is their lemans racer a Martini livery car? Or is just the Williams-Martini-Mercedes F1 car?

      How totally lame that Porsche installs Bose as the stock sound system in this car (and other Porsches?). One of my favorite things about my G8 is that the Aussies used a Blaupunkt system instead of Bose. It seems that every succeeding iteration of Bose stereos in GM cars gets more and more like cheap stock junk. I foolishly paid $700. for a Bose stereo upgrade in my '14 Impala LTZ. What a waste of money. Fortunately, some quality manufacturers are stepping up with some car builders. Hopefully, GM will get the message and do the same.

        If your #1 concern about a 911 is the stereo then obviously this will never be the car for you. Stick to your Impala.
