Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid Race Car
The Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The hybrid technology featured in the car was developed by the Williams Formula One Team and is based on their F1 Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) which they did not race in 2009. Unlike other KERS that were developed for F1, the Williams system is based on using kinetic energy stored in a flywheel rather than batteries.
The GT3-R has two electric motors, each developing 80 brake horsepower, driving the front wheels to supplements the 480 brake horsepower four-litre flat-six engine at the rear. It is planned to enter the car in the 2010 24 Hours Nürburgring. As part of the build up to the 24 hour race the GT3 Hybrid made it's racing debut at the 57th ADAC Westfalenfahrt at Nürburgring on March 27 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
