This car is a Group One GT Cup competitor that fished 3rd at Spa and 2nd overall in 2009, produces 520 BHP, and is road legal.
The GT Cup is perhaps the Holy Grail for budding and experienced race car drivers; Group One cars are not for the feint hearted and this particular GT competitor started life as a rather unassuming Carrera Sport and was sourced by a race team lead by driver Danny Winstanley. damage in 2005 meant a re-shell to a 911 Turbo Shell 964 was this donor car; it was purchased and then swiftly uprated to a competitive car ready for the 2009 championships.
Currently boasting its 2009 race decals, FIA approved seats and belts which we are told are valid until 2018, this 911 weighs less than 1,000kg and boasts a race tuned 520bhp 911 Turbo engine propelling the car from 0-60 in under 3 seconds.
In 2015, the car had his engine and gearbox rebuilt by HP Motorsport (Porsche Specialists). A fully adjustable race suspension coupled with GT2 endurance Brembo brakes, Toyo 888 road/track tyres, the required fire extinguisher system and Xenon lights helped propel this example to 3rd at Spa and 2nd in the 2009 championship standings after the eighth round at Silverstone.
