Porsche Carrera GT gets Zagato treatment

If you’re somehow bored with the look of your Porsche Carrera GT, why not do what rally driver Ernst Berg has done with his? Give Zagato, the world-famous design firm, a call to see if some tweaks can freshen things up a bit.

In its factory form, the Carrera GT is one stunning machine. What Zagato has done here is simply give it a customised touch to make the GT even more special.

The engine cover behind the cabin is completely redesigned and now features two large body-coloured panels which rise up to the roll-over hoops. Underneath it all sits a new exhaust system with oval tips instead of the usual circular style.

In keeping with Zagato tradition, the Carrera GT features that iconic double-bubble roof, with two faint yet unique bulges that rise up offering more headroom.

There’s no speak of any engine modifications, not that the standard 5.7-litre naturally aspirated V10 needs any sort of fondling. It produces 445kW of power at a screaming 8000rpm, capable of propelling the beauty from 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds.
