A Porsche convertible always is a good choice: elegant, suitable for everyday use and at the same time sufficiently sporty.
But the 9ff convertible offers more than just that: it speeds up to 100 km/h in less than 4 seconds; 5 seconds later (less than 9s), it hits the 200 km/h mark and 11 seconds later, you scorch the tarmac with a speed of more than 300 km/h. At such a speed, caps or toupees don't stand a chance.
Thanks to its incredible power output of more than 780HP and 830Nm of torque, the discreet super sports car was allowed to compete, beside 15 other potent bolides, for the title of the fastest tuned car. This event, held by Continental and AUTO BILD SPORTSCARS, took place on the high-speed track in the Italian city of Nardo. The HP-miracle by 9ff took part as the very last contestant and promptly set a world record. The 9ff boss Jan Fatthauer has done without technology, tools and stress and instead practised something completely new: Motor Racing Zen. With Buddhist calmness, Fatthauer got into his hardtop convertible, accelerated, drove three rounds, parked his car at the edge of the track and went past his thunder-struck contestants to get a coffee. The new strategy worked out perfectly well: incredible 380.5 km/h - the new convertible world record!
Guru Fatthauer stays cool and says: "We wanted to do justice to our reputation as tuners who resist physics; an aim we have accomplished. But, that was clear from the start."
