Hey there bud. How goes? That sounds good. But it’d be better if you plopped down about $7 million (5.8 million Euros) for this 1997 Porsche 911 GT1. I know, it’s a lot. But this was the car that killed the greatest supercar racing era in Le Mans history. You can swing it.
The Porsche 911 GT1 was the transition point between GT1 as it was (very expensive road cars converted into race cars) and GT1 as it would soon be (from-the-ground-up race cars sold to the public as vary expensive road cars).
The GT1 was sort of middle-ey, as it had more parts based off of a consumer Porsche 911 than, say, the later all-out homologation specials like the Toyota GT-One or the Nissan R390.
The engine is basically an old Group C engine, a twin turbo half-air-cooled flat six good for around 600 horsepower. The transmission is described as “semi-automatic” by this listing in Germany, and it has air conditioning. Mileage is listed as about 2,300 miles.
In any case, I’m sure there are things that you could do with about seven million bucks other than spend them on a car that doesn’t pass the 25 Year Rule, but I would urge you to reconsider. It’s worth it. You’re worth it.
