4.0-litre engine, 480hp, 1200kg...
Porsche has revealed its latest 911 racer, the FIA GT3-class Porsche 911 GT3 R.
The new GT3 R has been deliberately designed to be accessible and approachable for its customers - people that Porsche coyly describes as "ambitious amateur racing drivers". As a result it gets ABS, traction control and a Nissan 370Z-style 'throttle-blip' function to help smooth progress on the down through the sequential six-speed dog 'box.
...good thing it's got a nice big rear wing then
The new extra-wide body should also help the stability of the new car, making it more driveable than the old 911 GT3 Cup S.
Customer teams will get the car in spring 2010, having forked out a base price of a cool 279,000 euros (£250k) plus taxes.
