Porsche Carrera GT receives Zagato treatment [videos]

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).
