2013 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Race Car Unveiled [Photo Gallery] [Video]
Powering this new racer is the usual 3.8-liter flat-six, which has been tuned to produce 460 PS (453 HP), which is 10 more than the last 997-based GT3 RS model. The engine is connected to a brand new six-speed dog-type gearbox which has been linked to paddle shifter, not a stick.
“The new 911 GT3 Cup is much easier to drive at the limit”, said works driver Timo Bernhard, who was significantly involved in the car’s development. “It is excellently balanced. The new axle geometry is enormously positive for the handling. Apart from that the new Cup 911 is great fun to drive.”
Prices start at respectable €181,200 (US$234,250) not including any tax or delivery.
