The classic Porsche 550 Spyder racing car.
I spied this beautiful white vintage Porsche 550 sports car at the Lebanon Airport’s Wings and Wheels event. Captured with a Canon 6D with 17-40mm L series Canon lens and processed with an high dynamic range processing, the resulting image was so sharp and detailed I had to spend a hour just removing all of the bugs and scratches from the hood paint.
The Porsche 550 was a racing sports car produced by Porsche from 1953-1956. Inspired by the Porsche 356 which was created by Ferry Porsche, and some spyder prototypes built and raced by Walter Glckler starting in 1951, the factory decided to build a car designed for use in auto racing. The model Porsche 550 Spyder was introduced at the 1953 Paris Auto Show. The 550 was very low to the ground, in order to be efficient for racing. In fact, former German Formula One racer Hans Herrmann drove it under closed railroad crossing gates during the 1954 Mille Miglia.
