Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

The new version of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup offers its many customers the world over even greater value than ever before. It features 44 mm wider body at the rear, providing sufficient space for even larger wheels. Engine capacity is up by 0.2 liters over the former model engine output is 30 BHP more than before. Under the hood it hides a 3.8-liter 6-cylinder horizontally-opposed power unit capable of developing 450 BHP. The engine sends the power to the wheels through a sequential 6-speed manual transmission. A racing exhaust system with a fully controlled catalytic converter helps to reduce harmful emission to a minimum. The wheel arches wider at the front and the flared wheel arches at the rear provide ample space for even wider wheels. The cockpit of the new 911 GT3 Cup caters even more than before for the specific needs of the driver. The controls for the Info Display are now positioned directly on the steering wheel housing a total of six switches. The steering wheel may now also be adjusted for height as on the regular production car. The model in Carrera White will be delivered to customers as of the end of October. The base price for the GT3 Cup is EUR 149.850 and this price does not include any taxes. In the upcoming season it will be raced in no less than seven cup trophies like the Porsche Carrera Cups in Germany, Asia, Japan and Italy, but also in the GT3 Cup Challenges in the US and the Middle East. The results will be revealed at a later date.
