A Le Mans' Hero: Porsche 917 - PURE RACECAR SOUNDS

When you think about racecars and Le Mans, you probably think about this: the Porsche 917. You used to see this monster in videogames but in my video you can finally see how it looks like in real world! I'm proud to host on my channel this proper Le Mans hero, a Porsche 917/k to be precise. The history of this incredible machine is way too long to be reported here so I'll link its Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_917 I'll then stick to what it's like to see such a monster in real world; it's just amazing: the car is lower than anything else, the sound it produces is nearly disturbing due to its loudness! I cannot imagine what was like to race at Le Mans or at the Nurburgring in one of these... Enjoy this piece of automotive history! Don't forget to subscribe to my channel! Carlo

This Porsche 917-025 was built for Porsche AG as a long-tail version. In 1970 was converted into a 917 "K" (K stay for Kurzheck, "short" in german), painted in white with blue stripes and sold to Team Zitro, from Switzerland. The car is moved by a 4.5 liter Flat-12 engine which can produce 580hp at 8300 rpm and it's able to reach a top speed over 350 km/h (220 mph). Camcorder: Canon Legria HF M46 + Canon DM-100 Microphone Event: Coppa Intereuropa Storica 2013 Where: Autodromo di Monza.
