Anyway, it’s a lightweight (1,200kg), stripped-out special based on FIA GT3 regulations with a 480bhp, 4.0-litre engine.
It’s designed with a series of driver aids to help out the amateur racer, including an electronic throttle that blips on the down-change, anti-lock brakes, traction control and a front-wheel-drive hatchback that’s less likely to drag a novice backwards into the gravel trap. That last bit’s not true.
The GT3 R also features a wider track with pumped up arches and a smooth under-body with rear diffuser. That huge rear wing is adjustable, as is the suspension.
