The “Pig” was certainly not designed to be pretty even if it was a brilliant exercise in aerodynamics.

Initially set to make its debut in Martini livery, legend has it that after Count Rossi took a look at the unusually shaped racing car, he refused to let it race in the famous red and blue stripes.

Porsche then decided to go with the pink butcher-style livery to make sure it didn’t go unnoticed at the race track.

Although it was a one-off experimental race car, the Porsche 917/20 “Pink Pig” (or Truffle Hunter) became a legend for its surprising participation at the 1971 Le Mans.
