Glühporsche for Gumball 3000

Schardenberg (Austria), 11. July 2017

1. to 8. July 2017 was held the annual end of road rally Gumball 3000. This year, the Route from the Latvian capital of Riga went to Mykonos in Greece. In the partly illegal, classified the race as a participant, to be noticed, you have to come up with something else. It is no longer enough to just go with a rare sports car, a souped-up classic car or a big SUV at the Start ... individualizations are required. For this reason, the Team has chosen the "Wolfpack" of 2017 at one of their three vehicles for a exceptional foil.

Elaborate wrapping in several layers

The Team went with two Porsche 911 GT3 RS of the series 991 and a brand new Audi R8 V10 at the Start. All were called, wrapped in foil, but one of the specimens from Zuffenhausen – "Light Tron 911" – attracted our attention. The originally white vehicle, it was first provided with a first layer completely in Matt black. There is a second layer of Neon Yellow-Green Phosphor. Finally, a third layer with Black-and-White-reflective as well as matte black and gloss black appliqués. The Result? A night-light for Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Technically almost in its original state.

The wrapping work was carried out by the Austrian company Blackbox-Richter, you have cost lasted for a week and together with the powdered rims unspecified "several Thousand euros". Technically, it was created in the Porsche only to the exhaust system by Hand. Otherwise, the sports car remained with its naturally aspirated 4.0-Liter six-cylinder boxer engine and 500 HP untouched. What are you supposed to improve? So a GT3 RS sprints finally in 3.3 seconds to 100 kph and reaches a top speed of 310 km/h. (ml)
