Porsche 911 GT3 RSR

The Porsche 911 is one of the classic sports cars of its time, the embodiment of German precision.  The 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR has joined the incredibly successful model range.

The differences between this and the 2010 model aren't extensive, but as we know even the slightest edge over the competitor is vital in determining the winners and losers on the world's racing circuits.

The 4.0-litre, six-cylinder boxer engine now delivers 455 hp at 7,800 revs, five horsepower more than its predecessor.  The power increase results from an engine management system that adapts even better to different fuel grades, as well as a redesigned exhaust system and a modified air intake housing.  Furthermore, the drivability of the famously efficient engine has undergone further improvements.  Maximum revs remain unchanged at 9,400 rpm.

The bodywork has also been revised, with the rear end taking cues from the latest road going 911 to include new LED rear lights while the front wheels are wider than its predecessors.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RSR joins the 911 GT3 R and the 911 GT3 Cup as the top model of Porsche Motorsport's product range.  The successful long distance racer from Weissach can be ordered now at a price of 410,000 Euro plus VAT.

Rather a nice Christmas we'd say.alternatively all 2011 modifications are available as a kit for GT3 RSR cars from the 2010 season.
