The stunning painting above features Mario Andretti’s Ferrari 512S Coupé, a car he co-drove to the 1970 Sebring 12 Hours victory. He’s said on a number of occasions that this was the most satisfying victory of his career, which is saying a hell of a lot when you look at the length and depth of the professional racing that the man has done.
The painting is the work of Alex Wakefield and it was created for the Road Racing Drivers Club who will be honoring Mario Andretti at Long Beach this week, the painting is part of a series so if you’d like to see the others you can click here and if you’d like to buy this one, you can click here.
