Want to own a piece of Porsche history? Now you can. The record setting Porsche GT2 RS that was piloted by Jeff Zwart at Pikes Peak is currently for sale at Champion Motorsport in sunny South Florida. Champion’s Porsche dealership, the largest Porsche dealership year after year, currently has the GT2 RS sitting in their showroom looking for a new owner.
Earlier this week, Porsche released a video of Zwart’s record setting run up Pikes Peak after driving 1,132 miles from California. The GT2 RS mostly has interior modifications, being a race car and all, and currently sports only a driver’s seat, OMP steering wheel and safety cage. Hopefully whoever purchases it will preserve it as a race car rather than letting it sit in the garage as some sort of collectible.

With what might be the largest Porsche dealer in Canada, Pfaff also has a tuning department, dedicated to giving more power and performance to customer’s who demand more from their car. And apparently, Pfaff also likes to deliver more style, showing off both a matte-black Audi R8, as well as a matte-black Carrera C4S.
The Carrera is a special model, featuring a mild upgrade package from Champion Motorsport, a Florida-based tuner associated with the Champion race team that ran the Audi R8 race cars in North American several years back. Rather than the low-cost option of a wrap, this matte-black Porsche is actually painted. It also features a set of black Champion RF67 wheels with a nice red pinstripe.
The car has also been equipped with a Werks1 front lip and rear diffuser (Werks1 being Champion’s line of aerodynamic parts). Added power comes from a Tubi exhaust an a GIAC ECU tune, while the car’s handling has been increased thanks to some H&R springs.
We took plenty of snaps of both cars, so feel free to browse though them all in the gallery below.
