2012 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup 4.0 Brumos Edition
The partnership between Brumos and Porsche started way back in the late 1950s when it first became an authorized Porsche dealership. After that, Brumos Racing entered competition in the 1960 Sebring 12 Hours, with their Porsche RS60 having been driven all the way to the second place by Bob Holbert, Roy Schechter, and Howard Fowler. Fast forwards into the 21st century and we get to experience the 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup 4.0 Brumos Edition
This Brumos Commemorative Edition GT3 Cup car is one of only 5 units meticulously prepared by Porsche Motorsports North America with Grand-Am Championship-winning specifications in mind. At the back, you will find the 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-6 racing engine, developing 450 hp – usually for factory Grand-Am teams only.
Please note that the magic surrounding this Porsche includes sequential multi-port fuel injection, Bosch electronic engine management and a full racing exhaust with a regulated catalytic converter. Other features worth mentioning include a MoTec ADL2 data-acquisition system, with steering and braking sensors, as well as the multi-link rear and adjustable McPherson strut front suspension, APP aluminum center-lock wheels, steel rotor disc brakes with red-painted aluminum calipers – all you need to do is start your engine.
The bodyshell benefits from a full roll cage with carbon fiber floor plate and doors, front flares and splitter and adjustable carbon-fiber rear wing of the original. The red, white, and blue livery match the 2011 Brumos GT3 Cup car that took the American Grand-Am championship. On the inside, however, everything has been stripped and the driver gets a padded steering wheel and two OMP racing bucket seats with 5-point harnesses. Test driven and approved by Hurley Haywood, this is one jewel worth collecting.
