Crashed – Porsche Carrera GT in Italy image

A very rare example of the Porsche Carrera GT has been involved in a crash recently, in Italy.

The Porsche Carrera GT was a true mid-engined supercar put together in Leipzig, Germany, but because production has been made in just 1,270 units, exclusivity is the key word to describe it. A silver finished example of the exotic ride has been highlighted recently but Porsche fans should avoid this article because it will probably ruin their day. This particular ride is said to have hit a wall in the circuit in Brescia, Italy, after its driver has lost control of the wheel. The good news is that no one was injured, the bad news is that the servicing bill will be extremely high, considering the fact that we are talking about a very rare supercar.

Porsche has been producing the Carrera GT between 2004 and 2007 and this was offered in a two-door roadster body style, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The model stands at 4,613 mm long, 1,921 mm wide and 1,166 mm tall, weighing in at 1,380 kg. The 5.7 liter V10 engine with four valves per cylinder, variable valve timing on intake camshafts and a DOHC was found under its hood. The mid-mounted unit was capable of producing a total output of 612 HP (456 kW) at 8,000 rpm and 590 Nm (435 lb-ft) of torque at 5,800 rpm. It was connected to a 6-speed manual transmission allowing the model to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 4 seconds and to go up to a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). The spiritual successor of the car is considered to be the 918 Spyder.
