Not quite sure where we were in June that we missed this video when it first came out, but boy am I glad I found it now. Recorded at Monza Circuit during the “1000 km Challenge” race revival, a 3 hours race in which race cars from 1960 to 1970 compete, this 1969 Porsche 917 (chassis # 025) sounds off quite nicely. Powered by a 4.5 liter Flat-12 engine producing 580hp at 8300 rpm, this Porsche 917K (it was originally a long-tail but was converted to a “K” in 1970) can reach top speeds over 220 mph.
