Although it wasn’t the fastest, most user-friendly or, arguably, even the best looking supercar even when it was new, we’re absolutely in love with the Porsche Carrera GT. From its origins as an LMP1 racecar program, to its two-piece removable roof, to its howling V10 engine, to its race-bred, small-diameter, super-grabby clutch for its old school H-pattern 6-speed manual transmission, the Carrera GT is a symphony of engineering excellence, and remains proudly inaccessible to the average reality TV starlet who got her big break courtesy of a homemade porno. As time goes on, we think it will be more coveted than the upcoming 918 Spyder and maybe – dare we say it – the 959.
However, a bone stock Carrera GT wasn’t special enough for rally driver Ernst Berg. So he and his son approached Zagato (the legendary Italian coachbuilder) with the idea of giving their copy of Porsche’s most recent non-911-based supercar a subtle facelift. And the end result may be subtle (at least with regard to the number of reshaped or swapped out body panels), but good golly is it effective.
