Porsche Brunei, represented by QAF Eurokars Sdn Bhd, is marking its 25th year of operation in the country. The sole authorised importer and dealer of Porsche vehicles was first established in 1997, and to-date has enjoyed two and a half decades of fuelling sports car fascination and motorsports passion to enthusiasts in Brunei.
“On this momentous occasion, we are pleased to announce that we will be giving away an exclusive timepiece from Porsche Design to one lucky winner during our 25th anniversary celebrations in August this year,” said Lahiru De Silva, the General Manager of QAF Eurokars. QAF Eurokars is delighted to extend its celebrations to the public, with an exciting line-up of events to mark the milestone.
The new 911 GT3: Closer to motorsport than ever.
As QAF Eurokars races into the new year, the new 911 GT3 is the perfect accompaniment to the occasion. Members of the local media were treated to an exclusive launch of the legendary high-performance sports car at Porsche Centre Brunei on 22 January 2022.
The seventh edition of the 911 GT3 was developed in close collaboration with Porsche Motorsport. It transfers pure racing technology into a production car more systematically than ever before: its double-wishbone front suspension, sophisticated aerodynamics with swan-neck rear wing mounting and striking diffuser originate in the successful 911 RSR GT racing car.
The 375 kW (510 PS) 4.0-litre six-cylinder boxer engine is based on that of the 911 GT3 R, tried and tested in endurance racing. The dramatic-sounding, high-revving engine is also used practically unchanged in the new 911 GT3 Cup. The result is a brilliant driving machine: efficient and exciting, precise and high-performance – perfect for the circuit and superb for everyday use.
The distinctive strength of the 911 GT3 lies in the sum of its characteristics. With a top speed of 320 km/h (318 km/h with PDK), it is even faster than the previous 911 GT3 RS. The new 911 GT3 accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
Porsche also offers the new model with a six-speed manual transmission for those who seek a particularly purist driving experience. The sophisticated aerodynamics benefit from Porsche’s motorsports pedigree, generating significantly more downforce without noticeably affecting the drag coefficient.
In the performance position, the manually adjustable wing and diffuser elements drastically increase the aerodynamic downforce for high cornering speeds, reserved purely for track days.
Despite a wider body, larger wheels and additional technical features, the weight of the new GT3 is on a par with its predecessor. It weighs 1,418 kg with the manual transmission and 1,435 kg with the Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK).
The front bonnet made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), lightweight glass windows, optimised brake discs and forged alloy wheels ensure a focus on weight-saving, as does the rear compartment cover.
The lightweight sports exhaust system reduces weight by no less than 10 kg. With electrically operated continuously adjustable exhaust flaps, a highly evocative sound experience is the result.
The 911 GT3‘s racing genes are expressed in practically all of its details. The cockpit is in line with the current model generation but an exciting new feature is the Track Screen. At the touch of a button, it reduces the digital displays to the left and right of the central rev counter (which soars up to 10,000 rpm) to vital information such as the tyre pressure indicator and oil temperature. It also includes a visual shift assistant with coloured bars to the left and right of the rev counter, as well as a motorsport-derived shift light.
With customers showing increased discernment in their choices and valuing individualisation, this is especially so for owners of Porsche GT models.
For this reason, the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur range is also available for the new 911 GT3 and is supplemented by GT3-specific options such as a lightweight roof made of exposed carbon fibre.
Other highlights include exterior mirror tops made of carbon, darkened LED matrix main headlights and matching Exclusive Design rear lights, featuring an arc of light with no red components.
In the interior, equipment such as the dials for the rev counter and Sport Chrono stopwatch, seatbelts and trim strips set elegant accents in the car's body colour, or another colour of the customer's choice.
