We admit to not being too in-tune with the Essen Motor Show because, in addition to it coinciding with the Los Angeles Auto Show, the event is also held in Essen, Germany, which is a rather large pond away from America.
Having said that, we never fail to keep our eyes and ears open in regards to cars that are scheduled to be at Essen. One of the car’s we have kept close tabs on is the Porsche 911 GT9 VMax by noted Porsche tuner 9ff. Now, we’ve seen 9ff’s GT9 VMax programs in the past, but this one is different because its 4.2-liter Biturbo Boxer engine supposedly packs a whopping 1,400 horsepower and 855 pound-feet of torque.
Staggering as those numbers are, the 9ff-supercar also carries insane time trials, including 0 to 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds, 0 to 124 mph in 6.8 seconds, and 0 to 186 mph in 13 seconds. If its acceleration is not enough for you, its nauseating 271 mph top speed sure will be.
The 1,400-horsepower GT9 VMax is expected to make its world debut at the 2012 Essen Motor Show, automatically making it one of the most hotly anticipated supercars to take center stage at Europe’s aftermarket auto show.
