$2,000,000 Porsche 962 Derek Bell Signature Edition #00
This is one incredibly rare Porsche race car. The 962 TWIN turbo is the Derek bell signature edition. The whole body is solid carbon fiber, it's right hand drive too! Seen at cars and coffee Dallas 5/2/15. The car is fitted with a twin turbo 993 GT2 engine running 580 BHP and giving a colossal 741Nm of torque. When the car weighs just 830kg that equates to around 700 BHP per tonne. To put this figure into perspective the iconic McLaren F1 is 550 BHP/tonne, a Carrera GT is 442, a Pagani Zonda C12S is 437 etc. For long distance endurance the car features a 120 litre fuel tank.

Miata vs Viper at NASA Mid-Ohio Qualifying
Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, NASA Great Lakes Regional event. April 11, 2010 turbo Miata "The Rocket" driven by owner Jeff "Drift" Diffenderfer, chases down a big bad Dodge Viper during qualifying laps on Sunday morning. What a way to start the day! "The Rocket" is a 2004 Mazdaspeed MX-5 and was prepared by Jesse Prather Motorsports of Topeka, KS. We took the NASA National Championship in 2010 at Miller Motorsports Park. Heat management was the biggest challenge we faced in sorting out this car. Making 270 rwhp, and tons of torque..now a wide body kit, and much wider wheels/tires.. 275 R6 Hoosiers. (Video is with stock fenders and R6 225). The turbo is a Garrett 24. Thanks for all the compliments. The Viper driver has improved a lot since this was recorded. Drift
