Artist Daniel Arsham just gave a brand new look to Porsche 930A
Back in April, DANIEL ARSHAM unveiled his first collaboration artwork with Porsche, transforming his Future Relic series into a life-sized eroded piece of the iconic 911 model.
The second Porsche project made by Daniel Arsham took two years and a 1986 Porsche 911 Turbo as base for a complete reconstruction. The 1980 Porsche 935 K3 sponsored by Apple was Daniel's inspiration for the development and production which had a modern touch, the hand-painted livery took on a traditional style that also traced its course to the interior.
Milled from scratch, the modified Fuchs shape was altered in depth and contains a crosshatching Arsham Studio monogram, referencing the legendary magnesium alloy rims of the ‘74 RSR.
EVERY ASPECT OF THE CAR WAS CUSTOMIZED.
Regarding the inside of the car, Items For Living equipped the 930 Turbo with luxury Italian leather. The upholstery also features Porsche-Arsham custom leather steering wheel and aluminum turbo door sills, as well as hand-painted gauges in Japan-made 930 dash glean style.
For being a timeless high-quality material, leather has been used practically forever in restorations or customizations, so it's no surprised when we face a reconstruction of a classic car using it — but the candy colors on this one are def a plus.
The upholstery is set off by the bespoke Porsche-Arsham leather steering wheel and aluminum turbo door sills, and the hand-painted livery exterior by Death Spray is heavily influenced by the 1980 935 K3 sponsored by Apple Computers.
Aside from increasing the bore size of the pistons and powder coating select parts in Arsham Studio green, the 930A engine was expertly restored to factory settings.
