Photo of the Day: Matte Black Porsche Carrera GT

The Porsche Carrera GT is a phenomenal car and one that is tipped to be a future classic. Launched in 2005, it produced 612bhp from its 5.7-litre race-derived V10, mounted in the middle a that lightweight tub, and revved to 8,400rpm. The engine is dominating, the V10 howls and yawns as the revs build.

The Carrera GT featured a carbon fibre reinforced plastic module frame with a monocoque chassis, and a kerbweight of just 1,380kg. The suspension was straight out of a racing car; steel pushrods operate the spring and damper elements. The wall of power combined with it’s feather-weight body meant that the Carrera GT would sprint to 60mph in 3.9 seconds. This particular example that featured in the gallery has controversially been wrapped matte black from rims to roof, the yellow brake calipers providing a very nice contrast to the matte paint finish.
