Price on request
The legendary Circuit de la Sarthe near Le Mans has been world-famous since 1923 as “the 24 Hours of Le Mans.” In the 1962 photo, the famous Ferrari 250 GTO is seen being driven on a truck to the circuit. This is also the second only known photo of the Poteau Michelin, which was placed on the access road to Le Mans. With extensive research and study, Vinsign has created an exact replica of this Poteau Michelin. The new pole is an exact copy of the original with identical dimensions, colors, and unique handmade fonts.

The photo from 1962 shows the famous Ferrari 250 GTO being transported on a truck to the circuit. This is also the second and only known photo of the Poteau Michelin, which was placed on the access road to Le Mans.
The Poteau Michelin has since disappeared, with only a few other Michelin signs remaining in the Musée des 24 Heures du Mans.
With a lot of research and study, Vinsign has created an exact reproduction of this Poteau Michelin. The new pole is an exact copy of the original, with the same dimensions and colors.
The bottom font is unique, as it was composed using handmade molds. A similar font was later used on some Michelin signs, but this one is unique because it was created specifically for this Poteau Michelin. The Vinsign reproduction has been copied down to the millimeter from the original!
The Vinsign reproduction is made up of solid beech wood layers that have been combined in a special way to create a permanent, solid structure. The text plate has 9 special layers to obtain the typical Michelin look, and the “concrete” finish consists of 2 very hard layers. The entire reproduction is available with or without the characteristic Michelin foot.
It comes with a certificate, a luxury postcard of the original, and a unique production number. For more information and prices, please contact us.
