What would you do with a million dollars? If you answered, "Destroy a car", then you would have something in common with the driver of this Porsche. The Porsche 9ff GT9-R is, without question, one of the fastest cars on Earth as shown by a top speed of 257 mph with a 1120 cp and a peak torque of 1000 NM. Unfortunately, the 9ff GT9-R’s staggering numbers can also make it a death-ride on four wheels.
Case in point: a 9ff GT9-R was recently taken to the UK to perform a test drive on the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground race track. At 217 mph, the pilot hit the brakes hard, lost control, and crashed. Fortunately, the driver is ok, but the car is a total loss!
This was unit number 0/20, so we imagine it will take some time until we see a new unit built.
