The rich have their quirks, we heard. And now another example - a whole "special operation" had to be carried out in the Belgian city of Hasselt to raise a rare Porsche 919 Hybrid to the apartment of a collector - Luc Vanderfisten.
The well-known connoisseur and car dealer of Porsche - Luke Vanderfisten decided to enjoy the view of the rare Porsche 919 Hybrid right at home. It is known that Luke is the head of two car dealerships and the most dedicated connoisseur of the German brand Porsche.
Despite the fact that the collector's apartment is located on the 8th floor, he managed to "deliver" a unique car to his terrace with the help of a special crane.
Note that the Porsche 919 Hybrid is a racing vehicle and cannot be driven on public roads. In addition, its weight is quite large. To lift the car, we had to do some extra work: the Porsche 919 Hybrid was partially dismantled (the hybrid unit was removed) and lightened by 200 kg. Also, for additional protection of the car from the external environment, its carbon body has undergone a special re-treatment.
Now this famous sports car, which became the WEC champion three times (in 2015-2017), will proudly show off in such an unusual place.
