The extraordinary pink pig livery has its history since 1971 when Porsche participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. They appeared in the Porsche 917/20 at the start. Due to the special livery, which is based on the butcher’s parts of a pig, the car received nicknames like ‘Big Berta’, ‘Truffle Hunter’ and of course the most common nickname; ‘Pink Pig’.
In 2018 Porsche decided to honor the famous livery by using the pink livery on one of the two cars who were going to participate in the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans. As a result the second car received the famous Rothmans livery. The Porsche finished first in its class closely followed by the Rothmans Porsche.
