BBi Autosport, stationed in Huntington Beach, CA, specializes in tuner parts ranging from exhaust to interior cages and even engine pulleys, using high-end materials. BBi brought the oldest and arguably the best-looking competitor to the GP. The ’85 911 Carrera was equipped with a 3.6L flax-six with a built bottom end and 997 GT3 Cup titanium rods.
Results of the dyno put the team at the bottom of the pack with a final horsepower rating of 276.3hp and 255.8 lb-ft of torque.
BBi’s 911 may have lacked the modern technologies required to compete with the front of the pack but it reminded us of how well thought-out engineering of the past can stand up against contemporary machinery.
