87 or 88 924s Le Mans edition

I was curious if anyone has pictures of an 87 or 88 924S Le Mans. I know the 78-79 ones had the Martini-Rossi livery and I think the later ones were black with blue green letters. I have always liked the special edition P-cars.

Here's what I found out:
1987 :
LE MANS 924S special edition built to celebrate Porsche’s 12th outright win in the famous 24 Hour race. Between July and September 1987 a total of 980 LE Mans models were manufactured: 200 black and 50 white cars were sold in West Germany, 500 black (but no white) in the US, and 113 black and 117 white elsewhere in ‘Rest of the World’ markets.

Paint finishes and interiors were only offered in two colour choices - Alpine White with Ochre/Grey detailing or Black with Turquoise detailing. The exterior side stripes were broken by scripted ‘LE Mans’ logos on the lower part of the door, while the rims of the holes in each wheel were in the appropriate Ochre or Turquoise. Inside, the cars featured sports seats. Upholstery was grey/ochre striped flannel cloth with ochre piping for Alpine White cars, or grey/turquoise with turquoise piping for Black cars. All the cars had the 360mm (14in) steering wheel, with, as a final flourish, the cloth door panels colour-coded to match the detail colours. All cars came with a 160 BHP engine plus an electric tilt/removable sunroof fitted as standard. It was also lowered 10mm (0.39in) at the front and 15mm (0.59in) at the rear, and fitted with stiffer springs and gas-filled shock absorbers all round. It was further given sport anti-roll bars with diameters of 21.5mm (0.85in) at the front but 20mm (0.79in), rather than 14mm (0.55in), at the rear. Wheels were ‘telephone dial’ cast alloy 6J x 15 at the front and 7J x 15 (at the rear).

Anyone have any pics?
