Sitting between the 911 GT3 Cup and 911 GT3 RSR (which competes in Le Mans races), the 911 GT3 R represents the mid-range of Porsche’s customer racing vehicles. For 2012, the engine output has increased by 20 hp (to 500 hp), paddle-shifts have been added to the steering wheel to ensure gear changes are even quicker and simpler, and a softer anti-roll bar on the front axle reduces understeer. The new Porsche 911 GT3 R will be delivered to teams around the world from November 2011, with a starting price of 304,500 Euro. Note the adidas logo on the wing.
