Porsche just let its latest GT3 racer out of the cage and you better believe its one hell of a monster. The new racecar isn't just lighter, its more efficient, and its faster than ever. Taking after its road-going sibling, the GT3 R maintains the trademark double bubble roof and a stretched wheelbase than is 8.3 cm longer than the previous model.

You'll also have loads of power at your disposal with 500 hp under the hood coming from a water-cooled six-cylinder boxer engine. Mated to that engine is a sequential six-speed constant-mesh gearbox with pneumatic gear-shift activation. You'll also find adjustable front axle McPherson struts, six-piston aluminium monobloc racing brake callipers and one-piece BBS alloy wheels. 

Deliveries will begin later this year and pricing will be set at 429,000 Euros.
