Available for auction is this 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup finished in white with a custom red and yellow livery. This purpose-built factory race car is equipped with a 3.8-liter flat-six engine that sends up to 460 HP to the rear wheels through a paddle-operated 6-speed sequential dog-type gearbox. It weighs 500 lbs. less than the contemporary GT3 road car and features a lightweight aluminum and steel construction, lightweight aerodynamic bodywork, a limited-slip differential, and an adjustable rear wing. With 33 hours since the last engine and transmission rebuilds, this race-ready GT3 Cup is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Virginia.
This 991 GT3 Cup is finished in white with a removable red and yellow racing livery. It sits on red powder-coated Forgeline wheels dressed in Pirelli racing slicks and sports a GT3-spec front lip, fenders, rear arches, rear end, and an adjustable rear wing. Additionally, a lightweight aluminum and steel construction help contribute to the GT3 Cup shedding over 500 lbs. versus its road-legal counterpart.
