N.Technology have been working hard on their latest version of the Panamera S Racecar, but it seems as if H&R are grabbing the reigns and providing the racer with their own set of modifications due to be unveiled at the Essen Motorshow in a few days time. This racing version of the Porsche Panamera is the only Panamera racing car in the world and it is also the only model able to secure the pole position three times, but H&R are apparently up for the challenge of making it even better.
The extra work on the Panamera racer can’t exactly be called "extensive" by any stretch of the word, but H&R did fit it with their superior suspension technology to better equip it to deal with the 4.8L V8 that is tucked nicely under the hood. Shooting out 500 ponies, this Panamera can now ride smooth and hug tight corners with the best of them.
Since this is a race car, the vehicle is covered in carbon components and racing livery. It is driven by well–known race driver Fabrizio Giovanardi as part of racing team "N. Technology." Some may have seen it make its way around the track, but the first and only racing Panamera can be seen for the first time up close and personal during the 2010 Essen Motorshow.
Press release after the jump.
4.8 Litre V8, rear wheel drive, about 500 PS and a body dressed in carbon components – these are the design parameters of the world premiere which can be admired at the H&R booth in Hall 10.
Presented on an exhibition for the first time ever, the only Panamera racing car in the world can be viewed there at close range.
The vehicle from the racing team "N. Technology" launched this year in the Italian SuperStars Series and has celebrated one success by one since then. The Panamera is driven by the well–known race driver Fabrizio Giovanardi.
During the last three racing days in which the completely re–built vehicle took part, the car won four times and came in third and ninth once.
In the qualifyings the Panamera was the only one able to secure the pole position three times. Last but not least because of its superior suspension technology made by H&R.
