New Reveal : 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup

Joining the 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo, and 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS to the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, is this Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race-car. Unlike its other siblings, the GT3 Cup is not road-legal, and in fact, is meant to be shown for GT3-series teams. Porsche says that it is stronger, wider and faster than its predecessors.
Like the GT3 RS, this GT3 Cup is 1.73-inch wider than the standard 911, and also features wider front wheel arches, racing rear-spoiler, three-piece light-alloy wheels, and front body panels from its street-legal GT3 RS sibling. Inside of course, it's fully stripped-out, and only features a driver-seat with racing wheel and gauge, a roll-cage, and a fire-distinguisher.
Best thing about a Porsche race-car, is surely the engine. GT3 teams will be happy that the new GT3 Cup shares the 3.8L flat-6 engine from the GT3 RS. Output is the same, at 450 hp at 8,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a sequential 6-speed manual transmission.
Production & Price:
The racing teams have to be quick when purchasing this GT3 Cup, as Porsche will be building limited production of it, and a price tag of at 149,850 Euros. So next season GT3 race is going to be more exciting, as this Porsche 911 GT3 Cup will be rivaling the Audi R8 LMS.
