An exceptionally rare, light yellow Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion has been spotted on the streets of Cannes on numerous occasions throughout 2014. Back in the European Summer, the car caused a stir in the famous city on the French Riviera and the following clip shows the racing-derived road car on the streets!
In order for Porsche to enter the GT1 racing category, it was required for homologation purposes that 25 units had to be created for road use. What Porsche came up with was the Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion; a car so out of this world and seemingly unfit for the road that the only other car it can be compared to is the CLK GTR.
Under the hood, it features a 3.2-liter twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine delivering 537 hp. While that may not seem like much in today’s terms, the Porsche 911 GT1 Strassenversion despite its size, tips the scales at a mere 1,150 kg! As a result of this, it can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in a mere 3.9 seconds and onto a top speed in excess of 300 km/h.
