Only one Indian own this Limited Edition Porsche 911 R

There are only 991 models of this car worldwide and only one of it is in India which belongs to a car collector. The Limited Edition Porsche 911 R sports car, the only one of its kind was born on the track and it is the very same car from which every Porsche stems from. It pays  tribute to the road-homologated racing car from 1967 and is a high performance sports car.

So who owns the car in India? The spanking new prestigious automobile gleams proudly and exclusively in the swanky garage of car collector Bhoopesh Reddy. It was delivered to him a couple of months ago by Pavan Shetty, Director of Porsche India at the Porsche Centre in Bangaluru.

The 911 R is light and weighs 1,370 kilograms only.

By the way Porsche just opened a showroom at Kochi last month, it is their second one in South India.

For those interested here are the technical specifications of the sexy super car

* A thoroughbred driving machine that utilises technology from the race track, the 911 R features a 500 hp naturally aspirated engine and six-speed sports transmission.

* The rear is a six-cylinder flat engine with a displacement of four litres, similar to the 911 GT3 RS. The racing engine generates 460 Nm at a speed of 6,250 rpm, capable of breaking through the 100 km/h barrier in 3.8 seconds and achieving a top speed of 323 km/h. Combined fuel consumption in the NEDC is 13.3 l/100 km. *The 911 R is a cornering specialist, with a specifically tuned standard rear-axle steering which guarantees enhanced direct turn-in characteristics and precise handling while maintaining high stability.

* The Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) comes as standard to ensure the greatest possible deceleration, measuring 410 millimetres on the front axle and 390 millimetres on the rear.

* Ultra High Performance Tyres are mounted on forged 20-inch lightweight wheels, boasting 245 millimetres at the front and 305 millimetres at the rear. * Motorsport development has specially adapted the control systems of the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) for the 911 R. A double-declutch function can be activated by pressing a button for seamless gearshifts when changing down, along with the optional single-mass flywheel, which results in a significant improvement in spontaneity and high-revving dynamics of the engine. * From the exterior, the 911 R bears greater resemblance to the 911 Carerra than any other model. Characteristic details such as the rear body, front and rear apron and nose bear similarities to the 911 GT3, hinting that it originates from the motorsport department in Flacht, Germany The body is comprised of lightweight components that originate from the 911 GT3, which can be altered for road use.
