In honour of the 75th birthday of racing legend Jacky Ickx, Porsche decided to design and build a 911 992 inspired by Mr Yckx. Under the skin, the car is a Carrera 4S, which means that it has a 3.0 turbo engine with no less than 450 HP, coupled to an 8-speed PDK gearbox that distributes the power to all four wheels.
This results in a 0-100 in just 3.8 seconds and it only stops at 306 km/h.
Although the performance is impressive, it is not what makes this car so special.
It is the fact that only 75 of these cars were made, worldwide.
For example, the car, as well as the wheels, have been painted in a deep dark blue colour that is only available from Porsche itself and will not be released. The stitching of the interior is in the shape of an X, the seats have a white outline and Mr. Yckx’s signature is on both your armrest and your key. If you still do not notice that you are in a special edition, you are reminded of it by various stylish badges and logos.
To make this car just that little bit more special than the other 74 vehicles, no expense has been spared on its options. So below, you can see the full option list.
