Porsche has unveiled the revised 911 GT3 RSR – the most powerful racing version of the iconic sports car.
Like its road car siblings, the new top-of-the-line racer is rooted in evolution, not revolution. The exterior bears a considerable resemblance to the 2010 GT3 RSR, but minor tweaks reportedly help reduce understeer.
The key changes are in the front and rear aerodynamics and the suspension, plus there’s an extra five horsepower for the 4.0-litre, six-cylinder boxer engine, which now delivers 455HP at 7800rpm. The massive rear wing is now more adjustable, and the brakes are both lighter and more powerful.The GT3 RSR, which is characterised by its extremely wide body kit, has new bonnet vents and the underside of the car has been redesigned to make it more aerodynamic.
The RSR now features LED rear lights taken from the latest road-legal 911.
The 911 GT3 RSR joins the 911 GT3 R and the 911 GT3 Cup at the very top of Porsche Motorsport’s lineup and costs a mere EUR 410,000 plus country-specific value added tax.
