The 959 Sport weighs 100 kilos less than the simple 959, thanks to the removal of the suspension adjustment system, the rear seats, the air conditioning, the electric windows, the central locking and the passenger mirror.

It is equipped with a 2.85-liter bi-turbo engine producing 515 hp, with the power to pass on all the wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox, that allows it to accelerate to 100 km/h from a standstill in 3.2 seconds, with its top speed being 339 km/h.
