Do modified Porsches get any better than this? It’s a 993 Turbo with 610bhp
This is a 993-gen Porsche 911 Turbo. Or more accurately– this was when a 993-gen Porsche 911 Turbo. It’s currently an utterly beguiling Gemballa GTR 600, and also you will certainly want to own it.
It’s currently to buy at London dealership Hexagon Standards for the bargain cost of just ₤ 295,000. Oh, and also it has a respectable 31,700 miles on the clock, also.
Some history. This particular right-hand drive vehicle left the factory in 1996 with a blue exterior and a light grey and also blue leather inside. After a year it was delivered to Gemballa and also upgraded to Biturbo 570 specification, yet clearly that wasn’t sufficient for the then proprietor, due to the fact that after one more year it was back with Uwe for a EUR190,000 conversion to GTR 600 specification.
The result is what you see here. The 3.6-litre twin-turbo flat-six makes 610bhp and 530lb ft of torque. Power is sent out to all 4 wheels with a six-speed guidebook gearbox as well as a GT2 racing clutch. 0-60mph evidently takes just 3.6 seconds, as well as the top speed is someplace north of 200mph in spite of that shy and also retiring back wing.
The substantial alterations basically took the 993 to homologation special GT2 Evo specification, with basically every oily bit upgraded (consisting of brakes, suspension and a complete engine reconstruct) and that wonderful widebody aero set fitted. A big quantity of carbon was used, as well as it was also offered those brand-new wind resistant fronts lights.
At the time it was resprayed in Porsche Polar Silver as well as was apparently among only four GTR 600 constructs finished, so it’s an incredibly uncommon point today. Whoever buys it, simply see to it you drive it …
