- 1:18 Scale
- Diecast metal body, features opening front and rear clips, and cockpit
- Poseable steering
In the history of motorsport, perhaps no manufacturer has made a career of exploiting regulations as successfully as Porsche. Legendary race cars such as the 917 and 936 were direct responses to draconian rule changes by the FIA, and in the 1990s, Porsche's tradition of nth-degree rule interpretation continued with the 911 GT1. When the GT1 category was created for production-based sports racers, Porsche simply created a purpose built racer and then developed a roadgoing version of it...a clear reversal of the FIA's intentions! And it worked: the GT1 proved to be a fearsome competitor, racking up 47 wins from 135 starts in the BPR GT and FIA GT1 championships.
For serious collectors of Porsche sports-racing cars, we offer AUTOart's magnificent 1:18-scale diecast replica of the 1997 Porsche 911 GT1 Evo, the second-year evolution of the GT1 that would feature the new 996-generation fascia and improved aerodynamics over its predecessor. AUTOart's body-in-white version shows the brilliance of the GT1's aerodynamics, and its opening body panels reveal an extraordinarily detailed engine compartment and cockpit.
