In a beastly 800-hp Porsche Turbo Cup.
This video of Jeff Zwart climbing up Pikes Peak in a turbocharged Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is one of the most nail-biting videos we’ve ever seen. Zwart has turned the GTR Cup into a fire-spitting monster that sounds like a beast and puts out 800 hp. The incredible racer attempts to get up the hill climb in less than 10 minutes, which is something that only 12 other drivers have ever done in the 99 years of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Zwart managed to clock a personal best time of 10:01.917, which is roughly two seconds over the mark.
We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but seeing and hearing the purpose-built race car sprint up the 12.42-mile course is incredibly gorgeous and nerve wracking.
