In the late 1960s hillclimbing was still a major draw on the European sports car circuit, and with its innate leaning towards low weight and agility, Porsche remained a force to be reckoned with.
In 1967 Zuffenhausen unveiled the 910/8 Bergspyder, a development of the 910 prototype endurance racer with dramatically reduced weight and an engine configured for maximum output over comparatively tiny distances.
Its highly tuned flat-eight boxer was good for over 250hp in a car weighing a little over 400kg. In the hands of Gerhard Mitter, the Spyder would dominate the European Hillclimb Championship, winning the coveted Sports Car Class in both ’67 and ’68.
