It's not a road car - nothing you don't need
Porsche unveiled its 2010 911 GT3 R race car today at the Autosport International show at the Birmingham NEC in the UK. Porsche can claim more than 28,000 race victories in almost every motor sports series worldwide, and while many of these successes have been achieved with immensely powerful specialist race cars like the evocative 917 and 956, the iconic 911 sports coupe is the bedrock on which the racing reputation of the Stuttgart marque has been built. The new GT3 R is the purpose-built racetrack version of the 911 road car, weighs just 1,200 kg, develops 480 bhp, is technologically orgiastic, and costs EUR 279,000 (US$400,000).
