Watch Chris Harris drive Porsche's Le Mans car
10 November 2006

Our Chris Harris is known as a bit of a Porsche nut, but even he was blown away by his drive of the Porsche RS Spyder Le Mans car.

The Spyder competed in the United States this year, and will almost certainly end up at Le Mans in 2007. Harris got to drive it at Porsche's own Weissach test track in Germany.

"I want one of these now," he said as he rocketed around the tight circuit in the 480bhp Spyder.

The 3.4-litre V8-powered Spyder sounds utterly sensational as it revs up to nearly 11,000rpm.

But don't just take our word for it – click here and watch the video now. We suggest you turn the sound up.
