Sauber-Mecedes Evolution of Speed Poster
Switzerland’s Peter Sauber had built hillclimb and sports cars through the 1970s and early ’80s, but the decision by Mercedes-Benz in 1985 to come onboard as his team’s engine supplier was the catalyst for the successes that followed.
Powered by a 5-liter, twin-turbo, Mercedes V8, Sauber’s C8 won the 1986 Nürburgring 1000kms – the team’s first World Sportscar Championship win, and Mercedes’ first since 1955. In 1989, the gorgeous Sauber C9 ran in Mercedes’ evocative “Silver Arrows” livery for the first time, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans and dominating the WSC season.
The poster, illustrated by RACER’s resident artist Paul Laguette, depicts the evolution of Mercedes-Benz’s partnership with Sauber, covering the C8, C9, C11, C291, and even the unraced C292 of 1992. It’s a stunning piece of art that’s sure to be treasured by Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts, as well as fans of sports car racing’s incredible Group C era.
