New factory ready model will be unveiled at Frankfurt
15 September 2009

Porsche has launched its new factory ready 911 GT3 Cup racing car at the Frankfurt motor show.

The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is based on the standard GT3 car and it has been stripped out to keep its weight down to just 1200kg.

Lightweight features include 18-inch alloy wheels, carbonfibre bodywork and ceramic composite brakes, which weigh 20kg less than the standard brakes.

A special racing exhaust system, a fully controlled catalytic convertor and adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars also feature. A 44mm wider rear end to accommodate the larger tyres, a larger rear wing and a new front lip spoiler complete the aesthetic transformation.

Power comes from a 3.8-litre straight six unit, which produces 444bhp. No performance figures have been released, but expect it to get from 0-62mph in less than four seconds and go on to reach just shy of 200mph.

It will be exclusively available in Carrera white, with prices starting at 149,850 euro (£131,500). Deliveries will start in October.
