Dano Davis – The Brumos Collection of Jacksonville Florida displayed this awesome 1972 Porsche 917-10 at this years Amelia Island Concours. The description read:

After Porsche’s all but total dominance of the 1970-1971 Sports Car Endurance Racing Championship season, the international governing body wrote rules that outlawed the breathtaking 230+ mph Porsche 917 prototype coupes. Desperate to retain their preeminent position in sports car racing, Porsche, prompted by their American Motorsports Chief Joe Hoppen, created what was at the time the most powerful road racing car ever built: the 1,100 hp Porsche 917-10.
