1,580HP Porsche 917/30 Sound
I have filmed the most powerful racecar of all time, the Porsche 917/30 Can Am, a twin turbo flat 12 engine monster, just look at it fly past making a brilliant sound! This car has an unbelievable top speed of 260MPH and 0-60mph of 1.9 seconds, unbelievable! Also in this video is the Porsche 936 which Jacky Ickx raced at Le Mans 3 times.
