During the recent Frankfurt Motor Show, Head of Porsche Motorsport, Hartmut Kristen, gave an interview in which he discussed the technology transfer from the track to the road, as well as future developments in the world of racing.

Specifically, he discussed the technology used in the 2011 911 GT3 RSR and how it was transferred to the street-legal model, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0. The GT3 RSR is powered by a 4.0-liter, six-cylinder boxer engine mated to a six-speed gearbox. This combination delivers 455 HP at 7,800 rpm and a peak torque of 331 lbs-ft. The 911 GT3 RS 4.0 uses a 4.0 liter engine producing an incredible 500 HP and 339 lb-ft of torque.

The technology used in both models has helped the GT3 RSR win in its category at the 24-hr of Nürburgring this year, while the GT3 RS 4.0 delivers incredible performance for a car in its class.

Yeah! I never thought as well that Porsche could be this powerful, which is really amazing! I bet; this vehicle will included in the list of a super race car at Nurburging! Anyway, I would admit that it looks cool on its appearance.

So incredible and amazing! I’m so impressed with the technology that they used on 911 GT3 RSR. I can’t imagine that Porsche is so powerful on this video, there’s an urge that I really love to watch every race of Porsche and cheered for them. smiley

The Motor Show seems so interesting, well I’m just new in this site, and actually this is good place to see new technology applied to motor cars. Definitely, a high class car.
