A rare Porsche Carrera GT that’s been modified and turned into a track-day weapon is currently up for sale in Germany.
This Carrera GT was delivered new to Belgium in 2005. Soon after, it was sent to GPR Racing where it was fitted with a host of upgrades designed to improve its racetrack credentials. These upgrades cost a cool €220,000 (~$270,000).

Key upgrades include bespoke wishbones and pushrods, a new AP Racing braking system, an integrated air lift system, a high-performance clutch, a safety cage, BBS magnesium wheels, an automatic fire extinguishing system, and a fuel system that meets motorsport specifications. The car also includes a Motec control unit.
According to the listing at Mechatronik, the owner intended on racing the car in the World Endurance Championship but regulation changes prevented him from doing so. With no chance of competing, it was parked in the owner’s collection where it has been collecting dust ever since.
The tweaked 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine pumps out 650 hp and the car likely drives just as well as it did new because it has just 1,243 miles (2,000 km) on the odometer.
Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t come cheap. In fact, it has an asking price of €849,000 ($1.04 million), but when you consider that many standard Carrera GTs are fetching over $1 million, it doesn’t sound like such a bad deal after all.
