An impressive 1979 Porsche 935 K3 was spotted in Germany. In fact, this is the first Porsche supercar, and there is a car in a single copy.

In general, the Porsche 935 is a purely racing model based on the very first 911 Turbo. In 1979, the car won the 24-hour race at Le Mans, and in general, in its entire career, it won more than 150 different competitions.

However, the Austrian millionaire and Formula 1 team owner Walter Wolf wanted to drive the Porsche 935 not on race tracks, but on ordinary roads. He turned to the German studio Kremer to create a “civilian” version of the car for him.

Kremer decided to do with minimal alterations – they replaced the tires, made the suspension softer, installed the necessary lighting equipment. The cabin now features more comfortable Recaro seats, power windows and a 16-speaker audio system.

The engine was not touched – the three-liter turbo six produces the same 740 hp. from., as in the racing Porsche 935 K3, and works in conjunction with a 4-speed manual transmission. During tests on the Autobahn, the Porsche supercar reached 338 km / h.

According to rumors, such a project cost Walter Wolf 800 thousand dollars ($ 3 million at the current exchange rate). True, he drove a little less than 10 thousand km on it and in 1987 sold the car to one collector. Since then, the Porsche 935 K3 has changed owners several times and from time to time impresses visitors at various auto shows.

By the way, not everyone knows that Pablo Escobar also had a Porsche 935. True, the drug lord raced on it
