Porsche 911 Safari

Meet the jacked-up Porsche 911 rally car of your dreams! This 1978 Porsche 911 has recently been modified into a tribute of the car its builder Erik Brandenburg competed in the 2007’s 4,350 mile TransSyberia Rally. Now available for purchase, the Porsche 911 Safari comes in a monochrome version of Brandenburg’s Martini-inspired Transsyberia race car, and features a beefed up suspension, a 3.2 liter flat-six engine that delivers 231bhp and 210 lb-ft of torque, stainless steel skid plates covering vulnerable areas of the undercarriage, and a gearbox adapted with shorter ratios to assist traction and power delivery in the rough stuff. The rear-wheel drive beast also features an unusual but cool Martini Racing livery rendered in monochrome, a set of auxiliary lights fixed to the hood, and a winch integrated into the lightweight front bumper. Balloon like mud terrain tyres are stretched over the 16 inch wheels.

Our custom motorbike crush today is a nice simple machine from Sydney workshop, Gasoline Custom Motorcycles. The guys have really kept it simple, eliminating most stuff from the rear end and replacing the standard heavy exhaust, giving the bike a freedom of lightness. The utilitarian character of the bike was achieved by adding big knobbly tires and a rough-round-the-edges finish. Check out their website for more custom builds....
