Design: Jordan 191 Custom ACC livery
My birthyear, 1991, was also the first year Eddie Jordan fielded an F1 team. The Jordan 191 became renowned: not because it had fairly good results or because it looked good (which it both did), but because it was the car one Michael Schumacher raced his first F1 race in.
The history on MSC’s debut at Spa Franchorchamps is well-documented, so I’m not going to write a whole post about it. You can read the wiki-article here.
I had been wanting to create a Jordan 191-inspired livery for quite some time now. When I felt a little spark of inspiration and/or motivation, I decided it was time to do something about it.
For some reason, I took the Audi R8 LMS Evo as a base. I don’t know exactly why, but I just wanted to make a livery for the Audi that isn’t the bog-standard black/grey/white/red combination. And, I think the Audi has a similar design philosophy to the Jordan 191 penned by Gary Anderson.
In making this livery, I took a few creative liberties in order to create a better looking livery, but I tried to stay as true to the source material as possible.
The Jordan 191 had quite a few different iterations in regard to sponsors. I decided to create two different layouts: one specifically for the 1991 Spa Franchorchamps Grand Prix (car #32, M. Schumacher) and one which was more widely used throughout the season (car #33, A. de Cesaris).
Not just the sponsor and name above the door are different, the #33 car also has light-green mirrors like the original did. You can view the results below!
I took some more screenshots from a drive around Spa. Enjoy!
