Here’s a superhuman sportster


The release of Porsche’s GT, which will challenge the $2 Ferrari Enzo for the title of the fastest car, has been because one of its most experienced drivers says it is too powerful for mortals.

Former world champion and Porsche test Walter Rohrl told the new Porsche supercar is the first car in my that I drive and I feel

Despite the awesome performance and an expected $1 million pricetag most Carrera GTs are said to be for.

Just three have ordered one, but have told Porsche cars will be garaged in because the Carrera GT cannot be here.

Rohrl, who has been testing the GT in prototype form for the past years, said it is so powerful it spins the rear wheels in gear up to fifth in its six-ratio

Power and acceleration figures are yet to be but Rohrl gave a clue to the awesome performance, saying the 5.5-litre V10 produces 450Nm of from as little as 2000rpm.

reports claim that the has a maximum of 450kW and 600Nm and the engine revs to 9000rpm.

this year, Rohrl the engineering team was about to a day’s testing at the famous circuit because of wet weather. Rohrl said, when he the car had to be tested in slippery conditions, he the car’s daunting performance.

I came back into the and I was white, Rohrl said. I said to the engineers that we one button for the wet and one button for the dry, to the need for a traction control

Originally, he said, there no plans to fit electronic traction to the Carrera GT but his insistence has forced to develop a system at late

Porsche is also trying to the gearbox — but getting so heavy-duty parts to move and quickly has proved challenging for

Rohrl says the car will not be until it is perfect and that the is under no time pressure to the Carrera GT.

That is one of the good about projects like he says. Everyone wants the and we will do what it takes, as as it takes, to build the best.

The car sell whenever we bring it

Since its unveiling in concept car at the 2000 Paris motor the Carrera GT has been on the road as part of Porsche’s rigorous program and accordingly has often caught wearing little (above).

The Carrera GT was at the Estoril F1 track in Portugal last for dry-weather testing. Rohrl, who was a media release for the new Porsche 4WD at the time, was on the phone each to check on the progress of his baby.

At the Nurburgring, Rohrl tested the car several tyre combinations and that the 20-inch Michelin while excellent in the dry, more of a handful in the wet than the Pirellis, on which he was 20 seconds a lap around the 22km circuit.

has yet to make top speed claims the Carrera GT but it has been reported its tyres will be rated to because the car is likely to exceed

The current benchmark is the three-seater F1 road car which recorded a top of 386.7kmh set in 1999. But this has not been in production for four leaving the fight open for and Ferrari.

On paper, an acceleration time of 3.7 for the 0-100kmh sprint is likely for the GT. Rohrl would not give an

We develop the car to be the best we can possibly and then put a stop watch on it, he We don’t come up with a and say ‘this is what we must because then you have a Porsche plans to build no than 1000 Carerra GTs is building 399 Enzos) over years starting from assembling them by hand at the Leipzig plant alongside the 4WD.
