The Porsche Carrera GT is one of my favourite cars of all time, so what could be better to take one for a blast to bask in the glory of that V10 engine! The combination of such a fabulous exhaust note with the 6spd manual gearbox really and truly makes for a car that isn't quite as appreciated as I believe it should be. Does it deserve to be up towards the top of my dream car list? Let's find out!
The original Shquad may remember @thesupercargarage_ from a video we shot a full 7 years ago with a black Ferrari Enzo exactly in the spot we started this video. This time around though the collection has grown and now alongside the CGT features a Bugatti Veyron 16.4, Ferrari F40 and Ferrari 599 GTO amongst others. My choice for the day though, to go out to drive - the Porsche Carrera GT.
With a 5.7l naturally aspirated V10 developed for motorsport, the Carrera GT has a 6spd manual gearbox, removable targa roof panels, and many other aspects that combine to be one of the ultimate driver's package. Famously hard to drive and with a particularly challenging clutch, I headed straight out to some lovely countryside roads to get a feel for the noise and to try to explain what exactly makes it so wonderful.
