Description

Absolut Cars Consulting is offering you the chance to become the proud new owner of this magnificent and extremely rare Porsche 906 K. The Porsche 906 K is available and physical in our showroom. THE PORSCHE CARRERA 906 SERIAL NUMBER / 906 017 CHASSIS NUMBER / 906 017 ENGINE TYPE / 901 / 20 ENGINE NUMBER / 906 017 GEARBOX NUMBER / 906 002 COUPE 2 DOORS 2 SEATS FROM FACTORY. COLOR BLUE (BLAU ) INTERIOR / BUCKET SEATS IN RED SKAI FROM JANUARY 20, 1966 WAS PRESENTED TO THE PRESS AT THE PORSCHE FACTORY BEFORE ITS COMPETITION DEBUT THIS VERY RARE 1966 PORSCHE CARRERA 906 COUPE WITH ITS ORIGINAL CHASSIS, RESTORED TO NEW IN 2008 / 2010 BY FRESINGER MOTORSPORT IN GERMANY, IS IN PERFECT PRESENTATION, RESTORATION AND WORKING ORDER. ONLY 65 EXAMPLES OF THIS FACTORY-PREPARED CAR WERE PRODUCED IN 1966 FOR COMPETITION, AND ITS RACING PEDIGREE INCLUDES THE 1966 DAYTONA 24-HOUR RACE. The Porsche 906 or Carrera 6 succeeds the 904. The new racing car, designed under the direction of Ferdinand Piéch at the head of R&D, is homologated for the road and for FIA Group 4 regulations, as well as for Group 6 in prototype class. The 906 uses a fiberglass body shaped in the wind tunnel and mounted on a tubular chassis. The result was a car that weighed just 580 kg, some 110 kg less than the 904/6! The engine chosen was the type 901/20, a 6-cylinder, 2-liter carburetor engine developing 220 hp. Some models were also fitted with fuel injection, while others were equipped with an 8-cylinder flathead, especially for hill-climbing. The Porsche 906 achieves a top speed of 280 km/h on the Le Mans straight, impressive for its displacement. The 906 is distinguished by its gullwing doors and Plexiglas rear window. On its debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona, the Carrera 6 finished 6th overall and won its class ahead of the Ferrari Dino206. At the 12 Hde Sebring and the 1000 km of Monza, Hans Hermann/Gerhard Mitter finished 4th overall and first in class. A private 906 won the 1966 Targa Florio, compensating for the retirement of the factory car. In the same year, Porsche 906s took 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th place behind Ford GT40 MkIIs and ahead of Ferrari V12s. Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
