After Porsche' 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 that time the most powerful road racing car ever built: the 1100 horsepower Porsche 917-10.

Packing the already formidable punch of a Porsche 5.0 liter flat-12, the twin-turbocharged 917/10 roadster was capable of 200+ mph speeds on the short road racing courses of the Canadian-American Challenge Cup, or more commonly, called the Can-Am series.

Brumos' 917/10 #007 was delivered in 1972 as a 500 horsepower normally aspirated 5.0 roadster. Converted over the lull between the 1971 and 1972 Can-Am seasons, #007 became an 1100 horsepower monster.

Porsche 917/10'It was a car for wild men and crazy boys,' said Hurley Haywood, 'and I was just that guy.' Haywood struck a one-pace deal wîth Brumos to race #007 in the 1973 Can-Am series and notched third place in his first open cockpit series.

The Brumos #007 is significant because it is the first race car of any type to carry Brumos' famous red over blue stripes upon white livery wîth the famous Brumos 'sweeps.'
