Jacques Bernard "Jacky" Ickx is undoubtedly one of the most successful racing drivers out there. Aside from successfully competing in Formula 1, he also has six 24 Hour of Le Mans titles under his belt. Most of those Le Mans titles were won with him driving a Porsche. Now 75 years old, the Stuttgart-based marque is honoring the Belgian racing driver with a special edition Porsche 911.
Based on the 911 Carrera 4S, the tribute model is officially called the Belgian Legend Edition. Coincidentally, it’s available exclusively in Belgium as well. More importantly, however, it is the first-ever special edition model offered by Porsche from the current 992-series era. It is also the first 992 to receive Porsche’s Paint to Sample treatment finished in a unique “X Blue” color. Aside from the unique color, a badge of the Belgian flag and Jacky Ickx’s signature on the B-pillar separate this from a standard 911.
The special paint has also been applied to the Carrera Classic wheels which is contrasted by white accents. For those wondering, the blue-white paint scheme isn’t randomly chosen. It’s actually a tribute to Jacky Ickx’s signature blue and white helmet as seen on the photo.
Step inside, and there are subtle tweaks in the cabin to help it stand out from a standard 911 Carrera 4S. Specifically, there are carbon door sill guards which proudly show off “Belgian Legend Edition”. The interior is trimmed in black leather with Pebble Gray “X” stitching on the dashboard. Other details include “911” lettering on the headrests, leather seatbacks, and a central armrest with Ickx’s autograph.
Only 75 units of the Belgian Legend Edition will be built by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, mirorring Jackie Ickx's 75th birthday.
