1978 Porsche 911 G Safari

Beauty, brawn and off-road prowess. Meet the 1978 Porsche 911 that’s been modified to emulate that of Erik Brandenburg’s Safari he drove to compete in the 4,350-mile Transsyberia Rally back in 2007. The best part of all? It’s now available for purchase through Classic Driver.

Boasting the iconic Martini logo on the side of the vehicle, this tribute to the original rally car features some serious upgrades to help it conquer that off-road terrain with ease. We’re talking an upgraded suspension, stainless steel skid plates, and a gearbox with shorter ratios for enhanced power and traction. Under the hood is also a 3.2-liter flat-six engine pushing out 231 horses and 210 lb-ft of torque while a set of auxiliary lights are fixed to the hood of the ride and a winch installed into the front bumper. Finally, it’s rounded out with large mud tires wrapped around 16-inch wheels for good measure. [H/T: BlessThisStuff]
