Porsche has updated 'the most successful race car on earth' - the 911 GT3 Cup which according to them, will be suitable for competing in a wider range of endurance races in 2012.

Based on the road going version 911 GT3 RS (997) ,this 2012 spec model is now featuring a 100-litre FT3 fuel tank filled through a gap in the front bonnet, while the engine remains unchanged. This means the new 911 GT3 Cup will continue to convert 450 bhp into noise via a race exhaust system with controlled catalytic converter that helps keep emissions at the lowest possible levels.

The 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup also comes with 18 inch, light alloy rims wrapped in 25/64-18 Michelin race tyres, 7-position adjustable, blade type ant-roll bars (front and rear), Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) and a reach and height adjustable steering wheel with an info display and six switches.

Teams around the world will be able to order the 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup from September 2011 at a price which starts at 161,750 Euro.
