Just five examples of the special Porsche 911 Carrera GTS B59 Edition were built. These were built to commemorate longtime Brumos Racing president Hurley Haywood's spectacular racing career, in particular his record fifth and final Daytona 24 Hours win in 1991. In his first race together with Brumos Racing in 1969, Hayword beat a field of Corvettes in his Brumos-prepared 911S. After serving in Vietnam, Haywood returned to win the 1971 and 1972 IMSA GT championships. Driving Porsches almost exclusively through to the mid-1990s, Haywood would have a spectacular career and become one of the most decorated endurance drivers in the history of motorsports. The list of accomplishments included three wins in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, two in the Sebring 12 Hours and a record-tying five in the 24 Hours of Daytona.
This particular GTS B59 Edition is number five of the five built. The unique package of special features highlighted by its Brumos Racing livery combining Carrera white with blue and red striping. Black racing mirrors and 19-inch Sport Classic Fuchs-style wheels complete the car's exterior treatment.

Carrera white paint is also used on the console and the backs of the special heated memory Adaptive Sport Seats, the latter also incorporating Guards Red seat belts.
