Porsche and Martini Racing will soon pull the wraps off a 911 GT3 Cup in Spain, this weekend.
Porsche has recently teamed up with Martini Racing in order to create an iconic 911 GT3 Cup, which will be developed in honor of Martini’s 150th anniversary. According to the car manufacturer, the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Martini Racing will be officially unveiled on the 12th of May, in Barcelona. The model will compete in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and it will be driven by Sebastien Loeb.
“From the first day the beloved stripes of Martini Racing decorated a Porsche 906 in 1968, the illustrious pairing has gone on to claim some of motorsport’s most coveted titles, including numerous Le Mans 24 hours titles, during what is now considered to be a classic period of motorsport. We’re excited to be once again partnering with Martini in its 150 anniversary year”, said the head of Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, Jonas Krauss.
As a quick reminder, the standard Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is powered by a 3.8L flat-six engine, which is good for 460 HP. The unit is mated to a six-speed transmission, operable through steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup has a center mounted dual exhaust system, a rear wing, single-piece racing wheels and more. Prices for the model will start at 181,200, without VAT.
