A few years ago, Sacio Enterprises had the privilege of working on a very special vehicle: a Porsche 910 race car. There were only 15 of these cars ever produced, making them extremely rare and valuable.
The Porsche 910 earned status as a legendary race car, even though it only lasted for about a year as part of the factory-effort race team. The 910 is based on the 906 model, and is powered by a 200 horsepower 6-cylinder engine. It made its racing debut at the 1966 European Hill Climb Championship, but the 910 is best known for its legendary run at the Targa Florio in 1967.
The Targa Florio, a race set in the mountains of Sicily, was one of the premier endurance road races in the world. In 1967, Porsche 910s finished 1-2-3, outlasting and outperforming their rivals in Ferrari Prototypes and Ford GT40s. Car #174, driven by Leo Cella and Giampiero Biscaldi, finished first in its class and second overall, losing only to its counterpart, the more powerful 8-cylinder 910 Prototype.
Later that year, Porsche 910s again swept the podium, this time at the famous 1000km Nürburgring. However, the top three spots were all occupied by 6-cylinder 910s, as the top finishing 8-cylinder 910 finished 4th. That race gave Porsche an important victory at its home event and cemented the reputation of the 910 as one of the greatest race cars of its time.
Sacio Enterprise is proud to include this racing beauty to the list of cars that we have had the privilege of working on. We applied the red, yellow, and white paint scheme on the #174 Porsche 910 and prepped the vehicle for the Vintage 24-Hour Le Mans Race in France. The car was also showcased at the Monterey Historics car show, representing one of the best-of-the-best in the automotive world. The successful #174 car was also replicated with a limited edition die cast model.
