Von Schmidt


Inspired by the Gulf colors of the Porsche 917 that won the "24 Hours of Le Mans" in 1970 and 1971!

Blue as the sky

Whereas the first three Von Schmidt projects were shining in subtlety, VS 004 immediately catches the eye. Because yes, it stands out! In terms of looks and performance, this car is anything but shy. Striking paint, a custom exhaust system and a finger-licking interior. The Von Schmidt 004 radiates from all sides: you won't ignore me. The question is, of course, why would you want to?

Ready to rumble

For the Von Schmidt 004, it was clear from the outset that she should be a smash hit! However, this should never be at the expense of comfort. The central locking and the class III alarm system ensured that the Von Schmidt stood firm. The renewed sound system and revised air conditioning system make the VS 004 a car that impresses both its surroundings and its driver.

Endurace is key

Every racing fan knows that this car has a 'racy' vibe. The colorway of this car is based on the racing cars of Gulf. In the 1970s, Gulf caused a furore during the 24 Hours of Le Mans. History was written with a Porsche 917 by winning the world-famous race in '70 and '71. Every connoisseur knows: the 24 Hours of Le Mans is gruelling. For drivers and cars alike. The paint of this Von Schmidt is an ode to this gruelling race!
