Video: Derek Bell drives 718 RS60 on Targa Florio course

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

With the 718 Boxster hitting showrooms this June, Porsche has been playing up the new four-cylinder car's connection to one of the automaker's historic racers — in this case the 1960 718 RS60 Spyder. The latest project by Petrolicious features Le Mans-winning Porsche racer Derek Bell at the wheel, and it might just be the most exciting and fascinating film about both old and new 718s we've seen.

The 718 Boxster does make an appearance near the end of the 11-minute film, but Porsche purists can revel in nothing but the sounds of an air-cooled four-cam flat four in the Sicilian countryside for nearly 10 minutes. Watch the video above, and be sure to turn the volume all the way up.
