The legendary Can-Am Sunoco Porsche 917/30. Dubbed "The car that killed Can-Am" because it was just too fast and dominant. This car had a 5.3 litre, twin turbo, flat twelve engine that produced over 1500HP in qualifying trim and 1100HP in race trim. It's power to weight ratio was 1968hp/tonne! This power meant the car could go from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds, 0-100 in 3.9 seconds and 0-200 in 10.9 seconds. I think you'll agree this car was NUTS!

It was raced in the Can-Am series from 1971-1973, until the fuel crisis completely changed motorsport (for the worse).

This is my most popular creation on MOCpages (there are more detailed photos here)

I thought it might be an idea to make a project out of it.

Here we have a photo with the back removed so we can take a look at the beastly flat 12 engine.

The engine is easily removable so we can take a closer look. It's built entirely of technic pieces (apart from the wheel and hubcap at the top).

I will one day add Sunoco decals to this just to complete the look.

Hope you like it!
