Behind the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car

Martini Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car
Following the announcement that Martini Racing livery will adorn the VIP Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup car, here’s race engineer Andrea Mercatelli explaining some of the technical highlights of the company’s new GT3 Cup car.

Based on the 991 model, the 2013 car is powered by a naturally aspirated 3.8-litre flat-six engine, developing 338 kW (460 hp), a 7 kW (10 hp) improvement over its predecessor. A first for a Porsche brand trophy race car is the addition of a flappy paddle-controlled six-speed dog-type transmission.

Notable features include front dive planes, a splitter, adjustable rear wing, polycarbonate rear and side windows, and carbon fibre doors.
