This series of four James Hunt posters were created by the team at Automobilist to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the British driver’s World Championship victory, piloting the McLaren M23.
The 1976 season was exceedingly volatile and the battles between Niki Lauda and James Hunt became legendary, eventually inspiring the 2013 blockbuster film “Rush” starring Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, and Olivia Wilde.
The series of posters are limited to 1000 of each design, and they’re officially licensed by both McLaren Racing Limited and James Hunt Racing.
