Porsche 906E (1967)
The E stands for the german word for “injection”, which I’m too lazy to search for you today. (edit: about 10 people have already mailed me with the word Einspritzen. I’m guessing this is it, unless they were all insulting me in german).
Sixty five 906 were built, of these 9 prototypes with fuel injection.

This is the model that completely dominated the 1966 Hockeheim 500, not to mention winning its class that year in the Monza 1000, Targa Florio, Spa 1000, Austrian 500 and 24 Hours of Le Mans.

From the factory, this mean looking thing was completely road legal, which is something astonishing when you consider its tubular space frame, 600kg weight and 280kph top speed.

This is almost unbelievable, but this 220bhp monster (don’t forget that its tubular space frame and fiberglass body meant that it weighed less than 580kg) was actually road legal.
It was the last street legal racing car ever produced from Porsche. I didn’t know this, and now I’m sharing this piece of information with you. Yeeeessss.
