Porsche 911 GT3 Snowmobile by Magnat

The forth generation of 911 Porsche, GT3, provides only high technology features covered into a white painted body, detail that attracted the nickname of "snowmobile" for this car. With a 2,100 watts sound system, Porsche GT3 is designed to provide a truly amazing drive experience, power and highest quality.

Porsche GT3 has an electronic adapted engine that provides 462 HP and a maximum torque of 451 Nm, being able of a speed that goes up to 317 km/h. The tires of the car are Yokohama Advan Sport of 305/30-19 and 235/35-19 and are standing on some 8.5 Ultraleggera HLT CT by OZ wheels.

The whole interior of Porsche GT3 has been rearranged to gain more space and to provide the highest comfort. Its designers used expensive materials such as Alcantara or leather and painted it some exclusive accents in high gloss diamond. The sound system is specially designed by Magnat for this car, providing no less than 2.100 watts and the best sound quality.


That a Porsche GT3 - since 1999 built in first generation 911 Porsche sport version with water-cooled engine (now it is available in 4th generation!) - ever and always may be found on race tracks, was possibly planned by the manufacturer; but, otherwise, this does not apply at all to the successor of the legendary Carrera RS, which conception was also focused on essential things only. Presented in the following example of an unblemished driving machine shows perfectly that a "snow mobile" (so called because of its white car body painting) may also be provided with a first class car Hi-Fi equipment.

Thanks to the motor electronics adaptation, the modified exhaust system including sport catalysts and suction tubes optimization - all coming from Wimmer racing sport techniques in Solingen, Germany, and is called RS step 3 - the GT3 has been pepped up to a power performance of 462 hp, max torque of 451 Nm and Vmax of 317 km/h (197 m/h).

The wheel-tire-combination Ultraleggera HLT CT by OZ in 8.5 and 12x19 in. with Yokohama Advan Sport in 235/35-19 and 305/30-19 provides perfect contact with asphalt.

Individuality in the interior. Magnat has re-engineered the whole internal space of the car in finest craftsmanship and highest quality. Leather, Alcantara and high gloss paintwork let the GT3 shine in its unique design, the dynamic diamond patterns setting sportive and, in the same time, exclusive accents.

The 2,100 watts sound system has been adapted by Magnat especially for the GT3 interior. The original loud speaker brackets have been technically overhauled, offering sensibly better sound blasting qualities in comparison to the serial sound installation. There have been employed Magnat Selection series loud speakers, letting the inner space sound like a concert hall because of their anodized PP membranes, high performance voice coils and the 1" textile tweeters. Especially for the GT3, Magnat has developed a down-fire subwoofer casing with 10" woofer. Normally, this woofer principle is being used only for high quality home cinema installations, but it matches fine with the impressionating sound acoustics. The heart of the sound equipment is formed by the Magnat Black Core 5 channel amplifier providing its total power of 2,100 watts for sufficient power reserves and music pleasure while enjoying to drive the GT3.

According to an old German, it is a sound that makes music. Besides, it is justifiable to say: It is a fine Magnat sound that makes music...
