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.
