Using knowledge gained from their previous 912hp kit for the Carerra GT and an identical package for the 911 Coupe, 9ff’s engineers then turned to the drop-top. Their previous creation, a 650hp version of the same car managed to reach in excess of 350km/h and Le blog auto believe that this more powerful car will have what it takes to pass 400km/h.
9ff is also concentrating on preparing its custom mid-engined GT9 to challenge the Bugatti Veyron’s title of the world’s fastest production car. Sharing some mechanicals with the 911, the new GT9 is currently being developed at a new facility in Dortmund, Germany, and should be ready in time for a high-speed knock out comp at Italy’s Nardo circuit later this year.
Its makers claim the GT9 is capable of reaching 409km/hh (254mph), 2km/h better than the Veyron’s record of 407.5km/h (253.2mph). Two lucky buyers have already driven away in their own GT9’s, paying upwards of €400,000 for the unique supercar.
