Dizzying Collection of Werner Bührer Illustrations

Werner Bührer illustration

After yesterday’s Lola T260 illustration post, KABay was kind enough to point us to this treasure trove of Werner Bührer’s illustrations of racing cars for Powerslide Magazine (and republished by Road & Track) ed: Thanks, M Needforspeed. Once I saw it, I knew I wouldn’t be able to let it just sit there in the comments: This is front-page material!

Thanks again, KABay

    Indelible connections to a) my youth and b) cover-to-cover savoring of each issue of R&T.

    In fact, all those where first published on POWERSLIDE swiss mag.I have some detailed drawings of Buhrer from 1967 .He even draw Formula 2 cars in detail.
    I think Powerslide had an agreement with R & T, so the US mag cld use them.

    Warner’s art inspired me to become an automotive artist. I loved all the hand written notes in the between spaces of his art. He made technical illustration BEAUTIFUL!
