He's famous for his Formula 1 success, but Mark Webber has demonstrated he can drive like a rally car ace in Porsche's latest video. The multiple grand prix winner teams up with 1998 Le Mans winner, Stephane Ortelli, to deliver a special package for the German brand.
Their delivery vehicle? The new and very limited 911 Dakar. The pair start their journey in the heart of the Australian outback and finish at the Shell V-Power Motorsport Park (aka The Bend), where they swap into the equally special 911 GT3 RS.
The 911 Dakar celebrates the company's victory in the 1984 Paris-Dakar Rally. It's no sticker-pack special and features a range of off-road enhancements including 50mm more ground clearance and with an extra 30mm of lift front and rear, when needed, and Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus tyres that have been specifically developed by the Italian brand for the car.
The Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control anti-roll stabilisation system is standard, as is rear-axle steering, for better off-road performance.
There are wider wheel arches with stainless steel for extra protection as well as red aluminium towing points front and rear for practical and style reasons. The rear spoiler is made from carbon fibre reinforced plastic, as is the front bonnet, which is similar to the one found on the 911 GT3.
Porsche has also developed practical off-road features for those who want to get adventurous with their 911. There's an optional roof rack that incorporates a lightbar and has capacity for 42kg of extra equipment – such as extra fuel containers, tyres, shovels or traction boards. There's even an optional roof tent for those who want to go camping.
