A famous Australian motorsport livery has been recreated with a modern twist courtesy of a concept render by designer Tim Pattinson.
The iconic John Player Special black and gold colour scheme run by Frank Gardner’s JPS Team BMW during the 1980s have been placed on a virtual model of BMW’s M6 GT3 weapon.
Unlikely to ever be produced, the artwork is merely a concept of what a modern BMW would look like adorned with the retro livery.
Australian touring car legend and seven-time Bathurst 1000 winner Jim Richards became linked with the livery having raced for Gardner’s team from 1982-1987.
His son Steven Richards has continued the BMW link in the family by running the factory supported BMW Team SRM in the Australian GT Championship.
