The latest development of the superb 911GT3 Cup car is stronger, wider and faster than its predecessor and is the first GT3 Cup to be based on the 911 GT3 RS. The new car builds further on the runaway success of the previous model, which was the best-selling racing car of all time with more than 1400 cars produced.
The new car has been created for the Porsche Supercup and the ever-growing number of Carrera Cups and GT3 Cup Challenges around the world. It is powered by the same 3800cc engine as the 911 GT3 RS, delivering 450bhp at 8500rpm; an increase of 30bhp over the previous model.
The new model was unveiled for the 2010 season and was immediately introduced into the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, the Carrera Cups in Germany, Asia, Japan and Italy as well as the GT3 Cup Challenges in the USA and the Middle East.
This is the first GT3 Cup to feature the 44-millimetre wider body at the rear, providing space for even larger wheels. Wider wheel arches at the front also allow the use of new front wheels.
On-track, the new car offers more rear downforce with the rear wing being both wider and higher. Power is delivered through a sequential six-speed manual gearbox and the complete package weighs in at 1200kg.
Now, for 2011, the new car is coming to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB and it is surely going to be hugely popular with drivers and fans alike.
