The Porsche Carrera GT is a sublime car and one that is is already proving to be a classic. Launched in 2005, it produced 612 hp from its 5.7-litre race-derived V10, mounted in the middle a that lightweight tub, and revved to 8,400 rpm. The engine is dominating, the V10 howls and yawns as the revs build.
The Carrera GT featured a carbon fibre reinforced plastic module frame with a monocoque chassis, and a kerbweight of just 1,380 kg. The suspension was straight out of a racing car; steel pushrods operate the spring and damper elements. The wall of power combined with it’s feather-weight body meant that the Carrera GT would sprint to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. This particular example that features as our photo of the day has been finished in a cool shade of silver. GTspirit photographer Mitch Wilschut was behind the lens when his great image was captured.
