Driving a Porsche 917 on the street

Follow Nelson

So, you own a 1972 Porsche 917/10--good for about 1,000 horsepower and a championship-winning Can-Am race car--what better to do than take it for a little drive around town?

That is, as long as you're a fan of being bumper-high to a MINI and putting $6 million dollars in the hands of the general public's attentiveness.

We're glad the folks at Canepa Design were gutsy enough to do it though, as it makes for some surrealistic around-town footage (and some fine listening during a pull on the freeway around 5:48).
