Porsche - 911 GT1
Classe D50

Vehicles licensed for use on public roads for homologation purposes were required for campaigning in endurance races like the 24 Hours of Le Mans. At the end of the 1990s, the GT1 Class was the most powerful. The car was based on a carbon monocoque attached to a tubular space- frame front and rear. Even though the name of the car has the combination of figures 911, it is a thoroughbred racing car. Initially, the car was supplied with the design of the front and rear ends of the 993, but the design of the new 996 followed in 1998. 25 examples of each type were necessary for homologation. However, ultimately the FIA kept both eyes firmly shut because the number of units fell short and although the necessary number of units was never achieved, the vehicle was licensed in the GT1 Class. The radical powerhouse was provided by a 3.16 litre air-cooled six-cylinder Boxer engine, which featured a pair of turbochargers and water-cooled cylinder heads, based on the power pack of the Porsche 962. Porsche delivered a total of 21 examples of the evolution model licensed for road use to loyal customers and only one of these beauties was finished in Polar Silver Metallic – this is that very automobile.
