Les Charlots

Les Charlots
In the 1960s, the musical group "Les Charlots" was born in France and first became known for their songs and then for their films, which had a curious comic style full of continuous jokes.

One of the most famous films was "Le Grand Bazar", which was promoted in a beautiful Porsche 911 in the 1973 Tour de Corse, characterized by including the caricatures of Les Charlots on the sides of the car, as well as the name of the movie in big blue letters.

This curious and striking vehicle has caught the attention of the guys at Decalcas who have just announced to us that the livery will be available shortly, to be used on the Porsche 911 RS by Fujimi. It's always good to put a little humor in your models, right?

As always, you can reserve them now at SpotModel, the "Big Bazaar" of scale modeling :-D

Decalcas Reference: DCL-DEC062

It may seem to us that film advertising in the world of competition is something very recent, but it was already present more than 50 years ago, as for example in this Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 liter that raced in the 1973 Tour de France Automobile. One of the sponsors was the film Le Grand Bazar", a French comedy that would be released that same year, and similar to the film's poster, caricatures of the main actors appeared on the body of the car.
