the_meco has released a new preview of his very well progressing Porsche 917/30 mod project for Assetto Corsa.

Based on the legendary Porsche 917K that saw success in Le Mans and various European endurance races, the 917/30 was Porsche’s take on the legendary open-rules Can-Am series.

The open-top 917/30 was powered by a mighty turbo-charged 5.4 liter V12 engine that provided up to 1100bhp in race trim and was theoretically capable to provide more than 1500bhp of power.

The 917/30 went on to dominate the Can-Am series until the car was highly restricted by the rules due to its excessive fuel consumption of up to 100 liters per 100 kilometers.

    Even with a hole in my gaz tank my Hyundai Accent would use less than 100 liters per 100 kilometers… 😉

    btw, it’s a flat-12 layout

      Technically that can also be referred to as a 180-degree V12, I believe Ferrari used to call their flat-12s the same.
