more Porsche 935 awesomeness

Here’s more Porsche 935, in case you needed another fix.

Porsche 935 K3 Tribute (Turbo Monsters) incl. idle, revving & Flames

Engine: Flat-6 / 3163 cc / 193.02 cu-in / 2 KKK turbo’s
Power: 800 hp / 596 kw @ 8000 rpm
Gearbox: 4-speed manual
Top Speed: 350 km/h / 217 mph
Weight: 980 kg / 2160 lbs
Built from 1979-1981

In 1979 a 935 K3 was the overall winner of the 24h of Le Mans. A “normal” 935 came second and a 935 K2 came third overall.  So it was an impressive car even back then.

[quote= Petrolicious]What are the differences between a K3 and a regular 935?
They’re much different: the engine has two turbos, the suspension is modified, it has bigger brakes and a reversed “upside-down” type gearbox in order to let the titanium axles work straight and lower the CG, and different bodywork and aerodynamics. In the end, the 935 K3s were basically a new 935 model made by Kremer to keep these cars up to date as Porsche stopped making them because they had so much power they bent the chassis! Oddly, Porsche featured K3s that were not factory-built for their official posters and press releases![/quote]
