Built to the exacting specification of a racing driver client, this car is effectively the evolution of the famous Chris Harris hot rod that Tuthill Porsche also built.
It has a top mechanical specification and presentation. Visually it evokes the earliest 911 ST competition cars, but underneath it features Tuthill Porsche’s contemporary engineering pedigree.
A 3.6-litre, air-cooled, flat-six engine has been built around a GT3 crankshaft, giving this light, nimble 911 an output estimated at 340bhp.
Finished in beautiful, period Olive Green paint, it is, without question, one of the most thrilling, interesting and well set up 911s that we have driven.
