In order to mark its return at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, Porsche Exclusive unveiled the 911 Carrera S Martini Racing Edition. The new limited edition reflects the styling of Porsche cars of the 1970s and pays tribute to legendary Porsche Le Mans race cars such as the 917 and the 935 “Moby Dick”.
According to the official press release, the special edition is limited to just 80 units and Porsche will sell them in select markets of Europe, China, Japan and Latin America. For select 911 models, Porsche Tequipment will sell the exclusive Martini decal set as an aftermarket kit in Germany and other markets.
The 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Carrera S Martini Racing Edition is white and black and as you can see from the photos, the boot lid, roof section, rear wing and sides are accentuated by the “Martini Racing Design” décor set with the blue-red Martini colour pattern.
In addition, the vehicles feature the Aerokit Cup that adds an optimized spoiler lip as well as a fixed rear spoiler. Open the door and you will see the stainless steel door sill panels with red illuminated “911 Carrera S – Martini Racing Edition” badge as well as dashboard accents in body colour with the “Martini Racing Edition” logo.
Moreover, there is a sports steering wheel as well as the Sport Chrono package as standard. Other standard equipment includes Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with navigation module, a Bose sound system, tachometer with black gauge dial and all-electric sport seats in black leather.
Under the hood there is a 3.8-liter flat six-cylinder engine that generates 400 hp. Bolted to a PDK gearbox and with the activated Sport Plus mode, the vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4/1 seconds. Combined fuel consumption is 8.7 l/100 km/h (CO2 emissions of 202 g/km).
Starting in June 2014, the Porsche 911 Carrera S “Martini Racing Edition” will launch in the European markets of Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Poland, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Finland and Great Britain. Starting in August 2014, the special edition will also be available in China, and from October 2014 in Japan and in Latin America. [source: Porsche]
