Autodromo has collaborated with Vic Elford to create this limited edition timepiece to commemorate Vic's legendary victory at the 1968 Targa Florio race in Sicily, remembered as one of the great drives of all time. Over the course of the race, he turned an 18 minute deficit into a 3 minute, 42 second margin of victory, breaking his own lap record multiple times in the process. With a dial inspired by the colorful paintwork on Elford's Porsche 907, this special edition is limited to 224 numbered pieces, corresponding to Elford's race number. The caseback features a map of the Targa Florio circuit, which wound through the villages and mountain passes of Sicily, as well as Elford's practice lap record and race lap record, which was a full 45.4 seconds faster. The Vic Elford Prototipo comes in special edition packaging along with a 44 page booklet hand-signed by Elford himself.
Number 111 out of 224 numbered pieces produced. No longer available and completely sold out for the past year. An instant cult classic. Comes straight from the Autodromo Archives with box and papers, including booklet hand signed by Vic Elford.
