Porsche GT3 R Hybrid gets UK debut
Porsche will unveil their all-new GT3 R Hybrid race car to the UK at Autosport International, January 13-16, at the NEC. The GT3 R Hybrid made its race debut in the thrilling VLN Championship at the Nurburgring in 2010, and has subsequently raced at Road Atlanta in America and Zuhai in China. The car features an electric front axle drive with two electric motors, each pumping out 60 kW, supplementing the familiar 4.0-litre, 480bhp flat-six 'boxer' petrol engine. Racers can call on the extra grunt provided by the electric motors on command to give them an added edge – overtaking, for punch out of bends and to save on fuel. Interesting developments eh folks?
