The 911 GT3 R race car receives widened front and rear fender flares, new aerodynamics to generate more downforce which will allow higher cornering speed and later braking point. The wider track and the adapted wheels provide additional improvement in traction.
There has been modification of the suspension as well. The track of both the front and rear axle grew by 50 millimetres. The width of the front rims is now twelve instead of 10.9 inches. The wheelbase of the latest 911 GT3 R grew by ten millimetres.
It is powered by the highly efficient four-litre, six-cylinder flat engine that has an out-put of 368 kW (500 hp). It is linked to a six-speed sequential dog-type gearbox with pneumatic shift system operated via shift paddles on the steering wheel. This technical solution allows very fast and smooth gear changes – an advantage when it comes to high operational safety and a long service life.
With a conversion kit offered by Porsche, customer teams can convert older model years of the 911 GT3 R to the 2013-spec. The kit is available from Porsche Motor-sport at the price of 45,500 Euros plus country-specific value added tax.
