Porsche unveiled its latest FIA based car – the 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 R – a car based on a larger 4.0-litre six-cylinder ‘boxer’ engine delivering 480 bhp.
With a total mass of just 1, 200 kg (2, 646 lb), 911 GT3 R is now even easier to drive. For example, an anti-lock braking system, traction control and an electronic throttle with ‘blip’ function on gearbox down-changes make it much easier for drivers to get used to the GT3 R race car than the prior Cup S model, with the consequence that the new car is also more appropriate for the ambitious amateur racing driver rather than purely experienced professionals. The main focus with this new car was to deliver even better driveability and easier handling.
For optimal aerodynamic performance, the underbody of the car is completely covered and features a rear diffuser and, compared to the prior Cup S model, the range of adjustment on the rear wing has been increased.
The new suspension is based on a height-adjustable MacPherson struts with variable SACHS two-way shock absorbers and double coil springs on the front, while at the rear 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 R features a rigidly mounted sub-frame with a height-adjustable multi-arm axle together with adjustable SACHS two-way shock absorbers and double coil springs.
2010 Porsche 911 GT3 R price is set to 279,000 Euros plus local sales tax/VAT.
