Jo Siffert was one of Formula I’s best drivers in the late 60s and early 70s and also happened to be an Heuer enthusiast. He taught Steve McQueen his track secrets and was the very man who introduced McQueen to the Heuer brand. When McQueen was filming Le Mans, he insisted on imitating Siffert’s uniform down to the smallest details, including the prominent Heuer patch.
Jo Siffert was often seen wearing this special white Heuer Autavial and that's why the collectors have nick named this model after the legendary driver.
