1998 Porsche GT1 Evo 'Strassenversion'

1998 Porsche 911 GT1 Evo 'Strassenversion'
1 of only 20 ever made - produced as a homologation special for 1998 24 hours of Le Mans


Chassis #WPOZZZ99ZWS396010Engine #96/8361W50007The Porsche 911 GT1 Evo is an iconic supercar. 1 of 20 ever made; produced as a homologation special to meet the entry requirements for Porsche to compete in the 1998 24 hours of Le Mans.

Chassis #6010 was the tenth GT1 ‘Strassenversion’ produced and was hand-built by Porsche Motorsport to the current owner’s specification and registered in 1998. The car was then exported to France, where it has been maintained to the highest standards, covering just 5,500 km from new.

Finished in light yellow with full leather interior and Recaro racing seats, this is thought to be the only yellow example produced – most were finished in white or silver – making this a completely unique car with only one owner from new.

The car is fitted with its original and genuine twin turbo 3.2-litre flat-six engine, six speed H-pattern gearbox and paddle clutch and ventilated carbon discs with four piston callipers, weighing in at an overall dry weight of just 1,150kg. A reviewer from Automobile Magazine once said, “The 911 GT1 is a racing car tuned for road use, not vice versa.” This is absolutely true.

There is very little difference between the street and the racing version – the street version still produces close to 600 bhp, will reach 60 mph from a standstill start in just 3.7 seconds, and will keep going all the way to a top speed of 194 mph. This car drives and handles superbly on the road, and is very tractable.One ‘street’ homologation was built for each race version of the GT1 – 1996, 1997, and 1998.

The basis for the ’96 and ’97 street versions was the front crash structure and cockpit of a 993. After an unfortunate finish to the 1997 season, Porsche made a series of improvements to the GT1. The 1998 car is an evolution of the earlier GT1 street version, featuring modifications such as the headlights from a 996.In 1998, Porsche took first and second place in the 24 hrs of Le Mans.

The winning Le Mans GT1, driven by Stephane Ortelli, Laurent Aiello, and Alan McNish, beat the BMW V12 LM and the Mercedes CLK-LM. This was Porsche’s 16th overall win at Le Mans, making them more successful in this series than any other manufacturer in history. It’s been 16 years since they last competed at Le Mans, and 2014 marks the year of their return.

We are delighted to offer the opportunity to purchase #6010, which has been in a private collection since new. This is a unique chance to acquire an extraordinary car and own a part of Porsche’s Le Mans 24 hrs history.
