We, like every other automotive publication in the world, have run this video before, but it bears repetition; reminding us of a time when men were men, didn't wear helmets while hitting 11/10ths and didn't relie on AWD and stability control to turn in fast laps. The CTR lapped the ring in an unprecedented for the time 8:05.
Based on a 1987 911 Carrera, The CTR weighs only 2,535 Lbs, but makes 469 HP and 408 Lb-Ft of torque thanks to a larger capacity and two huge turbos. 0-60 takes just 4.0 seconds, while the top speed is 212 MPH. The whole thing cost $223,000 in 1987, over twice the price of a Lamborghini Countach.
