Porsche has added a new GT3 model to its 911 range with the launch of the Porsche 911 GT3 R. The car features the same body design as the 911 GT3 RS and it has a wide range of carbon fibre components. The car is designed specifically for the track, this car is not for the roads.
The 911 GT3 R is powered by a four litre flat six which is similar to that of GT3 RS, it has around 550 horsepower. Have a look at the video below.
During the development of the up to 404 kW (550 hp)* racing nine-eleven, special attention was paid to particularly efficient aerodynamics, further optimised safety as well as lowering the cost of servicing and spare parts.
The lightweight body design of the 911 GT3 RS production sports car featuring intelligent aluminium-steel composite construction has proven to be the ideal basis for the near-production race car. The roof, front hood and fairing, wheel arches, doors, side and tail sections as well as the rear lid and interior trim are made of particularly light carbon-fibre composite material (CFRP). All windows consist of polycarbonate.
