Power comes from a horizontally-opposed 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 450 bhp (331 kW) at 8,500 rpm.

Porsche has revealed their new 911 GT3 Cup factory race car.

Based on the 911 GT3 RS, the GT3 Cup features a 44mm (1.7") wider rear body (to accommodate larger tires), a 15mm (0.6") lower front spoiler lip (for more downforce on the front axle), and a larger rear wing (for additional downforce on the rear axle).

Weighing just 1,200 kg (2,646 lb), the car is outfitted with light-alloy 18-inch wheels, a fully controlled catalytic converter, a special racing exhaust system, adjustable front and rear anti-roll bars, and optional ceramic composite brakes that weigh 20 kg (44 lb) less than traditional composite cast brakes.

Power comes from a horizontally-opposed 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 450 bhp (331 kW) at 8,500 rpm. While no official performance figures have been announced, the GT3 Cup should accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than four seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 314 km/h (195 mph).

Available exclusively in Carrara White, the 911 GT3 Cup will be launched this October with prices starting at €149,850.
