His 1948 firm has created an incredible run of sports vehicles, which was only just halted by, of all things, a truck.
Possibly the best sports car the manufacturer has ever made is the unique $448,400, 605-horsepower Carrera GT that was revealed here.
It is a fantastic automobile with a ton of tasty technical details and wonderful thrust from an aluminum V-10 engine positioned in the middle.
Porsche has essentially done the same here, but with an absurdly high performance bar. Let's examine the figures.
The 60 mph drive isn't a sprint; rather, it's only the beginning of this automobile. In 3.5 seconds, it is gone. 100 mph is reached after just 3.3 milliseconds.
The GT reached 130 mph in 10.8 seconds, and wait, was the quarter-mile mark at 11.2 seconds and 132 mph by the time your brain caught up with the ever increasing speed.
The Enzo is therefore a few ticks faster, but think about this: In contrast to the Enzo, which combines a manual transmission with an electronic shifter and clutch
The inertia of the 5.7-liter V-10 engine is practically nil. The revs soar when the accelerator is pressed all the way. Similar to when you take off, they fall.
The GT clutch features four friction discs instead of just one, and it is around two-thirds the size (6.7 inches) of a typical Porsche 911 clutch.
Engineers were able to install the motor low (the crank is only 3.9 feet off the coal underbody tray) and take use of the handling advantages of a reduced center of gravity thanks to it
We discovered that gradually lifting the pedal without applying any gas was the most effective way to get the automobile moving.
There is nothing like that free-revving engine we've ever experienced. The shriek is deafening, measuring 93 db on our noise meter during a full blast
The GT accelerated from 5 to 60 mph in in 3.7 seconds. Additionally, it accelerated from 30 to 50 in 4.3 second and from 50 to 70 in 4.8 seconds even in lower gears
