Porsche Carrera GT receives Zagato treatment [videos]

Owned by Ernst Berg

Zagato received an order from rally driver Ernst Berg to make his Porsche Carrera GT very special.

Considered by Zagato as an evolution rather than a revolution of the original Carrera GT, this bespoke model maintains the same technical characteristics of Porsche's supercar. Zagato says Ernst Berg and his son Rem observed closely the development of the vehicle.

The focus was on giving it a new look by redesigning the engine hood, exhaust pipes, rear diffuser and front/rear bumper shields. Another significant change would have to be the Zagato-style double bubble roof.

Power comes from the same naturally-aspirated V10 5.7-liter engine generating 605 HP (445 kW) at 8,000 rpm which will allow the Carrera GT to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h).

This is how it should have looked from the get go. Not to say that the GT was ugly (It wasn't) but the roof line was always iffy for me.

Very very nice. The roof is really well done and integrated. Good job. This car is still beautiful after all these years !

I like what they did with the roof, I always thought the Carrera GT's roof looked awkward. It looked good with the targa top removed but up, it just could have been better. This one-off Zagato is stunning and I like that they kept the alterations simple.

truly beautiful. the subtlety of the changes roofline and profile say a lot about the strength of the initial design, and the good taste of the designers at Zagato. well done.

Very nice update :0 Original exhausts were cool for their time but a bit dated now so the tweaks at rear are great, as well as the obvious roof / profile improvement. Want. Badly.
