Le Mans Classic Clubsport Porsche revealed

Porsche specialist Paul Stephens has unveiled the Le Mans Classic Clubsport during a pre-launch event. The model is based on the 911 and is built to pay homage to the famous endurance race win. Only 10 will be built, with an asking price of around £250,000.

The model starts life as a restored Porsche 911 body, which is then finished in the white, green and black colour scheme. Lightweight panels are then added including an aluminium bonnet, composite bumpers and engine cover and a de-seemed roof panel. The interior features a trim combination of black leather and houndstooth inserts, matching the exterior colours.

The Clubsport uses an air-cooled 3.4-litre flat-six engine with 300bhp, which will generate a 0-62mph time of 4.5 seconds in Touring spec (4.4 seconds in the stripped out lightweight guise). This has been achieved by using an advanced injection system, GT3 RS-specification camshafts and a reprogrammed ECU. Drive from the five-speed transmission is fed to the rear wheels via a lightweight flywheel and limited slip differential.

The Le Mans Classic Clubsport will be strictly limited to just 10 and will cost around £250,000. The Clubsport will be appearing at this weekend’s Le Mans Classic race at Circuit de la Sarthe.
