Le Mans prototypes don’t get more awesome than a Porsche 917 and one in a Gulf livery is pretty much classic car porn.

Ahead of Porsche’s Rennsport Reunion at Laguna Seca, they fully restored the 1971 Spa 1000 km winning 917 and put it in the hands of racing driver Patrick Long, who had the honour of thrashing it round a race track.

That sound though.
