The Porsche 911 Belgian Legend Edition was unveiled on New Year's Day to mark Jacky Ickx's 75th birthday.
Designed by Porsche Exclusiv and based on the current 911 Carrera 4S, the Belgian Legend Edition has updated styling based on Ickx's blue and white helmet.
The car is painted an exclusive shade of dark blue titled "X Blue". The 20- and 21-inch alloy wheel combo is also finished in the same color with white laser engraved accents.
On the limited edition's B-pillar, there's a badge featuring the Belgian flag and Ickx's signature.
The dashboard, seats, and doors have hand-finished black leather trim with grey X-shaped stitching.
There's also Belgian Legend Edition carbon-fibre sills plates, 911 lettering on the headrests, and leather for the seatbacks. Ickx's autograph is embossed on the central armrest and is scrawled on the key fob.
The production run is limited to just 75 cars, and it will be available exclusively in Belgium.
During his time as a Formula, One driver Ickx raced for FerrariBrabham, and Lotus. He managed eight Grand Prix titles, but couldn't quite secure a championship.
Ickx notched up six 24 Hours of Le Mans victories, including three wins in a Porsche 936 and one in a Porsche 956. He was also a consultant to the rotary-powered Mazda 787B team, which won the 1991 Le Mans race.
In 1977, Ickx and Allan Moffat won the Bathurst 1000 in an XC Ford Falcon Hardtop.
