Magnat Racing upgrades the Porsche 911 GT3 Snowmobile

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 23, 2011

Wimmer racing sport techniques were applied on a Porsche GT3, giving it an output of 462 hp, a maximum torque of 451 Nm and a Vmax of 317 km/h (197 m/h). The vehicle is dubbed the RS step 3. The first generation 911 Porsche sport version featured a water-cooled engine. Even as it is now in its 4th generation, it has never shied away from the race tracks.

However, the successor of the Carrera RS had been focused on only the essential stuff. It has been proven that a "snow mobile" (with white car body painting) may also come with first class car Hi-Fi equipment.

It features motor electronics adaptation and its exhaust system was modified, including sport catalysts and suction tubes optimization.

Driving on asphalt is steadier with its wheel-tire-combination Ultraleggera HLT CT by OZ in 8.5 and 12x19 in. with Yokohama Advan Sport in 235/35-19 and 305/30-19. It also allows for more individuality in the interior. Magnat has restructured the entire internal space of the car and used the finest craftsmanship and highest quality materials.

It uses leather, Alcantara and high gloss paintwork to make the GT3 shine in its exclusive design that features diamond patterns.

The 2,100 watts sound system was adapted by Magnat particularly for the GT3 interior. The original loud speaker brackets were technically overhauled, providing better sound blasting qualities when compared to the serial sound installation.

SNOWMOBILE Porsche GT3 made by MAGNAT

That a Porsche GT3 – since 1999 built in first generation 911 Porsche sport version with water-cooled engine (now it is available in 4th generation!) – ever and always may be found on race tracks, was possibly planned by the manufacturer; but, otherwise, this does not apply at all to the successor of the legendary Carrera RS, which conception was also focused on essential things only. Presented in the following example of an unblemished driving machine shows perfectly that a “snow mobile” (so called because of its white car body painting) may also be provided with a first class car Hi-Fi equipment.

Thanks to the motor electronics adaptation, the modified exhaust system including sport catalysts and suction tubes optimization – all coming from Wimmer racing sport techniques in Solingen, Germany, and is called RS step 3 – the GT3 has been pepped up to a power performance of 462 hp, max torque of 451 Nm and Vmax of 317 km/h (197 m/h).

The wheel-tire-combination Ultraleggera HLT CT by OZ in 8.5 and 12×19 in. with Yokohama Advan Sport in 235/35-19 and 305/30-19 provides perfect contact with asphalt.

Individuality in the interior. Magnat has re-engineered the whole internal space of the car in finest craftsmanship and highest quality. Leather, Alcantara and high gloss paintwork let the GT3 shine in its unique design, the dynamic diamond patterns setting sportive and, in the same time, exclusive accents.

The 2,100 watts sound system has been adapted by Magnat especially for the GT3 interior. The original loud speaker brackets have been technically overhauled, offering sensibly better sound blasting qualities in comparison to the serial sound installation. There have been employed Magnat Selection series loud speakers, letting the inner space sound like a concert hall because of their anodized PP membranes, high performance voice coils and the 1″ textile tweeters. Especially for the GT3, Magnat has developed a down-fire subwoofer casing with 10″ woofer. Normally, this woofer principle is being used only for high quality home cinema installations, but it matches fine with the impressionating sound acoustics. The heart of the sound equipment is formed by the Magnat Black Core 5 channel amplifier providing its total power of 2,100 watts for sufficient power reserves and music pleasure while enjoying to drive the GT3.

According to an old German, it is a sound that makes music. Besides, it is justifiable to say: It is a fine Magnat sound that makes music.
