While the Porsche 918 Spyder is the current official record holder for the Nurburgring lap time, its predecessor – the Carrera GT – has a far fiercer reputation, one that hearkens back to the early days of the 911 Turbo, aka the “widowmaker”.
It’s not just that Fast and Furious star Paul Walker and his close friend died in one, but all around the world people with little supercar experience have been taught the hard way that a Porsche Carrera GT is not to be trifled with. But there are select few that can man this beast – so the V10 monster can even be enjoyed on narrow Monaco mountain roads. By the way, the shenanigans did or did not occur with traffic? We’ll let you watch the clip to have the answer. And of course – please do not try this on your own even if you have ample experience with performance cars.
Anyways, the guru behind the steering wheel is actually Raul Marchisio, who owns the RM Cars dealership in Monaco – but it’s not on the dealer lot that he learned how to tame rear-wheel-drive animals. He has a full background in rallying, having driven models from Audi, Lancia or Renault. By the way, this video is NSFW unless colleagues love the roaring V10 that can thunder your heart and brains in Porsche fashion… and we mean this in the most positive way possible.
