1970 Porsche 914-6

The 914-6 was Porsche's answer to criticism raised that the 914 was lacking in performance. With the flat 6 110 bhp boxer engine from the 911T mounted centrally, Porsche had unwittingly produced one of its best handling cars to date, often embarrassing its 911 stablemates on track. 

This particular car was supplied in 1970 by the renowned Sonauto Porsche dealership in Paris, responsible for developing the Le Mans-winning 914-6 GT. This Adriatic Blue Porsche / Volkswagen benefits from a dealer uprated engine producing 160 bhp. Currently fitted with a close ratio gearbox and a great sounding sports exhaust, it's more than capable of leaving similarly aged 911s trailing in its wake.
