Rare Porsche 911 Safari replica goes up for sale and it’s awesome

Fancy a 911 that has miles more off-roading ability than a lousy Cayenne? Then you want the 911 Safari.

These rally-spec Safaris were developed by Porsche itself and to good effect too – competing and winning in the Monte Carlo and Paris-Dakar rallies.

The one you see here didn’t roll out of the Stuttgart factory, though, but was converted by one Dr Erik Brandenburg, a prostate surgeon. Oh, and he’s also a rally specialist who races 911 Safaris.

Its original 3.2-litre flat-six is good for 228bhp and it has a specific rally gearbox, while the car is painted in a stunning monochrome version of the iconic Martini Racing livery. The photos make it look mucky too. Just how a rally car should be.

What’s even better is that it’s on the market – and it’s not as expensive as you might think. It’s being sold by Belgian dealer Iconiccars for €129,900, or about £118,000 at the current exchange rate.

OK, so it may not be the real deal, but the car’s history is easily good enough for us. We would therefore be very grateful if you could buy it before we succumb to temptation…

Pssst!
