WIN a Porsche 911 engine!*

*clearly, it's not a real Porsche 911 engine from an actual Porsche 911. That would be crazy.

Congratulations to our winner, Hamish Banner!

It’s competition time once again at The Car Expert – it’s been ages, I know. We’ll try harder to bring you more chances to win stuff in 2017, I promise.

But anyway, we have a fantastic prize to give away to motoring fans who love classic cars, and just in time for Christmas. It’s a 1:4 scale Porsche 911 flat-six engine set!

This detailed set features more than 280 components which replicate those found in the real 911 engine, and a transparent casing so the moving internal parts can be seen when switched on. It also features authentic Porsche engine sounds, so you get the full effect when you turn on your finished motor.

The Porsche 911 flat-six boxer engine is a great introduction for kids and motoring fans to the inner workings of such an iconic car engine, and a great building set for the hobby and car enthusiasts. It includes a detailed manual, with clear instructions and diagrams to follow.

The set is suitable for ages 10 years and over. If you miss out on winning our competition, or you want to buy that classic car fan in your life the perfect Christmas gift, you can always get one from Amazon.co.uk for £99.99 (RRP).
