The Ghost Car | McLaren Powered Porsche 911

The car that no one knew existed until a photographer broke a few rules and captured the masterpiece at a McLaren employee motor show last year will leaving you begging for its keys. The car – a 1980s Porsche 911 powered by a 1.5-litre TAG turbocharged V6 taken from an actual McLaren Formula 1 car.

At first glance the car looks like a perfectly normal Porsche 911 from the 1980s, but as you get closer and open up the engine bay the car begins to reveal its inner beast. For aesthetic purposes, the car is equipped with a lovely pair of five-spoke RUF wheels and even has a green push-to-start button on the dashboard setting it apart from a stock 911 of that time.

It’s really the back of the car that does all of the talking with two amazing intercoolers sticking out of the engine department making onlookers question how fast the car could go. Unfortunately, it has been said that McLaren has turned down all requests for a road test so for now we will have to let our imaginations run wild as we ponder the abilities of such a unique build.

This Is Why They Don’t Build Porsche’s Out Of Legos

The ADAC, the German equivalent of AAA, sent a $300 Lego Porsche 911 GT3 RS set down its test track in Landsberg to see what would happen and that wasn’t without its surprises. It turns out, the Lego chassis had no problems with the high-speed crash, and the point of failure was the connectors between the pieces. The ADAC conducted the test in partnership with Computer Technic magazine, which wrote about the Lego Porsche in December 2016. The publication, being run by people with a strict editorial standard, aims to “test all of the products they report” and what resulted was the Youtube gold below.
