In motorsport there are clear rules. One of these is to push the boundaries of performance. An attribute that is clearly reflected in the exterior of the new 911 GT3 with a design that follows function in every respect.
The newly designed front air vents, ahead of the front lid, channel cooling air to the radiator and, in combination with the front lip spoiler, provide even more front-end downforce. As is typical in motorsport, all of the cooling air inlets are protected by new air inlet grilles with a dark grey powder-coated finish.
The lights on the new 911 GT3 have also been completely redesigned, with Bi-Xenon headlights fitted as standard. Indicators and LED daytime running lights are harmoniously integrated into the separate front light units over the outer air intakes.
At the rear, distinctive LED lights are drawn right into the wing and taper outwards. Unmistakable – just like the new fixed bi-plane wing.
This provides aerodynamic downforce and greater driving stability, even at the highest speeds. It is made from lightweight synthetic material and the angle of incidence on the upper wing profile can be adjusted for use on the racetrack. Embossed on the side of the rear wing: ‘3.8’.
A reference to the engine size and a clear indication of its power.
As the car’s speed increases, two ram-air collector intakes on the engine lid help to force additional air into the intake manifold and engine compartment.
Another distinctive feature of the 911 GT3 is the central, black dual-tube tailpipe of the sports exhaust system.
The combined effect of all of these aerodynamic refinements is a low drag coefficient of just 0.32. The benefits are improved downforce, better aerodynamic balance, excellent road-holding characteristics, better directional stability and improved driving safety.
Our core motorsport values can be both felt and seen in the new 911 GT3.
