The limited edition Porsche Boxster pays homage to the Type 718 RS60 Spyder that became known as a dragon-slayer after it scored its first overall victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1960, dominating more powerful cars in the process.

"The Boxster RS 60 Spyder comes swathed in GT Silver Metallic paint with a Carrera Red interior to match the #42 car it's attempting to channel, along with a serialized silver plaque on the dash proclaiming its limited numbers and a new front spoiler," AutoBlog said. "But it's not just a bit of extra glitz heaped atop the already competent Boxster S. The stock rollers are swapped in favor of a set of 19-inch Porsche SportDesign alloys, the suspension benefits from Porsche's Active Suspension Management system (PASM) and the flat-six is uncorked with a sports exhaust that bumps output to 303 HP."

Porsche will unveil the special edition RS60 Spyder, only 1960 of which will be made, at the Bologna Motor Show in Italy.
