    Why I Want This In GT:
    There is no doubt that the Porsche 917 is one of the best race cars of all time, and the 1981 917 K/81, the final 917 to ever be raced, is my favorite 917 model along with the 1970 Gulf-liveried 917.

    From Wikipedia:
    In 1981, it appeared that new Le Mans regulations would allow a 917 to race again. The Kremer Racing team entered a homebuilt updated 917, the 917 K-81. The car raced at Le Mans qualifying in the top 10 but retired after seven hours after a collision with a back marker led to a loss of oil and withdrawal. The final chapter though was to be at Brands Hatch where the car ran in the 6 hours at the end of the season. The car was competitive and ran at or near the front, including a spell in the lead until a suspension failure led to retirement.

    Specs:
    Engine: naturally aspirated 4.9 L Porsche Flat-12
    Power: 570 HP
    Torque: 415 ft-lb
    Drivetrain: MR
    Transmission: 5-speed manual
    Weight: 800 kg
