In the Salon Los Angeles have been able to see many new products, including prototypes and models of street. Although there is also a small hole for the competition and there on the scene recently presented Porsche 911 RSR. This is the copy that will compete in the season 2017 in no less than 19 races of the category LM-GTE from the FIA. Among those appointments are included the 24 hours of Le Mans.
Although this Porsche 911 RSR not only catch your attention for his radicalism, but because this is the first that bears the engine in central position. It is the same mechanics boxer six-cylinder and 4.0-liter, but now is located ahead of the rear axle and not from behind as is customary in the 911. This change has led to this vehicle of competition has been that develop from scratch many of its components.
In the 911 RSR has been redesigned the suspension, body structure, aerodynamics, the engine and the transmission. On an aesthetic level, we find a radical carbon fiber body which includes a rear spoiler bigger. The result is really good and you get to reduce the weight up to a few worthy 1.243 kg The maximum torque of the engine of which we spoke before, you can develop up to 510 HP and is linked to a six-speed transmission.
As expected, your inside will have nothing to do with the 911 series. Has been removed all dispensable and installed a safety cage, seat type bucket with harnesses and up to a steering wheel reminiscent of Formula 1. As a curious note, the Porsche 911 RSR also includes the system ‘Collision Avoid System’, which, thanks to a radar warning of potential collisions, even in the dark. Its competition debut will be next January 28, 2017 in Daytona.
