During this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, Jeff Zwart tried his chances behind the wheel of a Porsche GT3 Cup. While most of us will never have the chance to enter the race, this video, which was filmed by Luminox, will offer you a chance to understand what kind of driving skills are required to climb the Pikes Peak.
For those of you who have been under a rock their whole life, Pikes Peak measures 12.42 miles, has 156 corners and goes way up to an altitude of 14,110 feet where the air contains just 58 percent of the oxygen it does at sea level.
Additionally, the 911 GT3 is a pretty powerful car and the Pikes Peak raises little problem. The 911 GT3 is powered by 3.8-liter boxer engine that delivers a total of 475 horsepower and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds and up to a top speed of 195 mph.
