Ferrari 641 F296 GT3 (F1 1990) || ACC Custom Livery

When I posted the Yardley McLaren M23 livery, someone on Reddit complained that I was only making these F1 retro liveries for the McLaren car. This led me to contemplate which other GT3 cars would be a natural match with a historic Formula 1 livery. Unsurprisingly, the first car to pop into my mind was the Ferrari 296 GT3. Not just because of Ferrari’s history, but also the numerous other Italian outfits which have participated in Formula 1. This led to me selecting three of my favourites: You can find...

Yardley McLaren M23 720S GT3 Evo (F1 1973) || ACC Custom Livery

I’ve been making Tyrrell’s classic liveries for the McLaren 720S GT3 and McLaren 720S GT3 Evo in Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). Like, quite a lot of them. I summed them up the last time I posted a Tyrrell livery. Or you can view all of my F1-based liveries on this new page I created. For these liveries, I always use a McLaren 720S GT3 Evo as a basis. One reason for it is because I think it is one of the best-looking cars. It’s also one of the more (but...

Tyrrell 012 ‘Benetton’ (F1 1983) || ACC Custom Livery

I’ve been making Tyrrell’s classic liveries for the McLaren 720S GT3 and McLaren 720S GT3 Evo in Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). Like, quite a lot of them. First, I made the 1977 Tyrrell P34 ‘First National City Bank’ for the McLaren 720S GT3. Second, I went back in time to make the 1976 Tyrrell P34 ‘Elf’ livery for the same car. Then, when the McLaren 720S GT3 Evo was released for ACC, I remade those liveries for the new car. And, most recently, I made the 1979 Tyrrell 009 ‘Candy’...

Wesett Racing Mercedes AMG GT3 2020 || ACC Custom Livery

I love working on liveries which are not the Ferrari 296. So when I was contacted by Wesett Racing to give their Mercedes livery a refreshing new look, I jumped at the opportunity. Wesett Racing’s (at the time) current Mercedes livery was a pretty straightforward one, featuring a gradient from front to back in two shades of purple, some logos, and a few white details. As seen in the picture on the right. My challenge was to incorporate their sponsor’s color (pinkish red) with their purple color, without any gradients....

Tyrrell 009 ‘Candy’ (F1 1979) || ACC Custom Livery

I’ve talked about my pallate cleansers before. Liveries I make in between (or while) making commissions. Liveries which are easy to make and don’t require too much brainpower or creative imagination, so that I keep myself motivated while heading into roadblocks when doing the big stuff. Classic liveries are great for that purpose, because back then they did not have computers to create advanced vinyl designs. The liveries mostly had 1 big sponsor, a simple design with some shapes, and then some smaller logos. So too the 1979 Tyrrell 009,...

Lotus 99T Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO2 || ACC Custom Livery

Lotus. A legendary name in Formula 1. In the many decades the team took part in F1, it had many iconic liveries. One of the most iconic ones perhaps was the John Player Special livery; a black livery with gold sponsors and accents. As you can probably tell, this one isn’t that. No, this livery is based on the livery which replaced the JPS livery: the yellow Camel liveries which the team used from 1987 to 1990. Starting with the Lotus 99T. The Lotus 99T was the final Lotus driven...

Team Salzburg Porsche 992 GT3 || ACC Custom Livery

Sometimes, you need a palate cleanser. Something which takes you out of the everyday madness. Something quick, something fun. For me, that was this livery. I’ve been making so many commissions nowadays, that I have needed to turn quite a few down. The pressure of delivering an original livery in a timely manner can be stressful, especially for someone so ill-equipped to deal with stress. Thanks for that, ADHD. So, in between working on commissions, I sometimes have a side project, which is more of a passion project. Recent examples...

Tyrrell P34 McLaren 720s GT3 || ACC Custom Livery Commission

Back in late 2022, I was contacted to convert the UOP Shadow livery, famous from 70s Formula 1, to a modern McLaren 720s GT3. Well, the person who requested said commission was so happy with the result, that he commissioned me to make another 70s inspired F1 livery for the McLaren 720s GT3. Based on… drumroll The Tyrrell P34 First National livery from 1977’s Formula 1, as seen below! The final result can be seen in the video above or the screenshots below.
