Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion for sale

Just 20 Strassenversion supercars homologated the Porsche 911 GT1 Le Mans campaign. And here's one for sale

Car enthusiast with a recent lottery win burning a hole in your pocket? We know there’s at least one of you out there, and you could spend your millions on cars far worse than this, one of only 20 road-legal Porsche 911 GT1s is for sale in the UK at Trofeo Cars.

It’s chassis number 6010, the tenth of the homologation-special supercars built and registered in 1998. Its 996-generation Porsche 911 styling elements mark it out as a third-generation GT1, while the yellow paint is thought to be unique, with GT1s typically painted white or silver.

The GT1 Evo Strassenversion was built to homologate Porsche’s Le Mans 24 Hours campaign from 1996 to 98. It runs a 3.2-litre twin-turbo flat-six engine, which drives the rear wheels via a six-speed H-pattern manual gearbox with a paddle clutch.

Outputs of 536bhp and 443lb ft may be beaten by the modern-day 911 Turbo S, but with just 1120kg to shift, performance is plenty fast, with a 192mph top speed, 3.7sec 0-60 time and 7.1sec 0-100 time.

It looks incredible from the outside – like a canary yellow racing car before the decals have been applied – while inside there’s a radio cassette player and some tasty green leather. And while its styling and performance stats imply a scary car you’ll merely be hanging onto, our features editor Henry Catchpole found the opposite when he drove a 911 GT1 at the end of 2013:

‘What’s incredible is how communicative the chassis is and how easily you can start to work the car and use the power. The GT1 feels small and you’re instinctively connected to each corner. There’s no roll to speak of, yet it doesn’t feel snappy and you always know where you are with the grip, so it feels easy to play with the mid-engined balance. It even sounds great: not Carrera GT great, but the turbos are overlaid with that harder-edged note that racing 911s enjoy.’

Being so specialist, the price is POA, but it’s fair to say you’ll be paying north of £1million for the GT1. Which might be small change if you’ve just picked up a nine-figure lottery jackpot…
