Porsche 911 RSR Low-poly 3D model
For 45 years the Porsche 911 RSR is a unique car. From the first time he stepped on the asphalt of Le Mans, this special edition of nineonce (exclusive configuration for the legendary race) devours kilometers in the Gallic layout with an image and finish unthinkable in a street vehicle.
As it can not be otherwise, the Porsche 911 RSR with which the Germans compete in the 24 hours of Le Mans is not suitable for use on the street, although its base does come from the sport we can see on our roads. In particular, derives from the GT3 version, which maintains the engine (six cylinders in line and 4.0 liters that generate 500 hp).
In the process of transformation into a competition vehicle, the Porsche 911 RSR advances the boxer motor to the central zone and places it longitudinally, to achieve greater circuit efficiency. In addition, we work to make access to mechanics as simple as possible, to gain time before any unforeseen that may arise, key to a 24-hour race. In addition, to improve the performance in the race, the gearbox is located just behind the engine, which forces to delay the rear axle 6.6 centimeters and get, thus, a more stable car.
The rear is the best example of what the engineers of Porsche can do, with a large spoiler and a diffuser of no smaller size that increases the downforce to values not achieved so far in the Le Mans shares. To all this we must add the cooling work that has been carried out to get the engine to suffer as little as possible during the mythical race.
All the work bears fruit in a car whose atmospheric engine weighs 40 kg less than its equivalent in turbo version, improving, in addition, its qualities at the level of development and efficiency compared to the turbocharged version. The tires are the widest seconds mounted on a Porsche, with 310 mm at the rear and 300 mm at the front and only surpassed by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
As a curiosity, the Porsche 911 RSR mounts two unique details for Le Mans. The roof is removable, so that the pilot can be rescued more easily in case of accident, and has anti-collision radar, which tells the pilot at what speed and in which direction the cars that will reach him will move and thus avoid risks unnecessary This technology is very useful in Le Mans, since the speed difference between the prototypes LMP1 and the LMGTE (category in which this supercar competes) is enormous.
