I try to widen peoples perspectives with this blog from time to time. With all of the talk this past year about the Top Secret V12 Nardo Supra, I thought I’d share with you what I feel is Germany’s equivalent of Smoky Nagata’s creation. I’d love to see these two cars battle it out once Smoky finishes tuning his Supra to its final specification!
Much like how Top Secret took Japan’s super car, the JZA80 Supra and reworked it into a 400km/h monster (debatable), 9ff from Germany took one of Porsche’s super cars, a 997 GT3 and reworked it into a 400km/h monster as well!
Although I’ll share some larger and cleaner pictures below, I cant think of a better way to introduce the GT9 than that photo you see above. Have you see a more hardcore street legal car in your life?
So lets talk about a few of the specs. The GT9 costs $850,000 USD and 20 will be made in total. It has already run 252 MPH (406km/h). It weighs 1326kg (2917lbs). It has 986 horsepower out of a 6cyl boxer twin turbo engine. It is the worlds fastest street legal Porsche and out accelerates a Bugatti Veyron.
Now for a few more pics:
Rather than talk more about it, I suggest googling it. There is already some great content online, I’m just happy enough to introduce this car to many JDM fanatics who might have otherwise never bothered looking at what high end German tuning can offer in comparison. Thanks goes out to Bernd who emailed me and inspired me to write about this car which I’ve been a fan of for some time now.
Check out some of the youtube videos as well…crazy stuff!
