Falken 911 GT3 R Up For Sale
Falken Motorsports is retiring its 997 GT3 R having campaigned the car with a great deal of success over the last five years.
This particular chassis, which has covered 14,000 kilometres, has been used by Falken since April 2014, but the team has been competing with the 911 GT3 R since 2010. During that time the team achieved a podium finish with the 500hp machine in the 2015 ADAC Zurich 24 Hour Race at the Nürburgring (as covered in GT Porsche). At the wheel drivers Wolf Henzler, Peter Dumbreck, Martin Ragginger and Alexandre Imperatori took on tough competition to secure the third place finish, a further improvement on its impressive top four finish the previous year. As well as battling the challenging Nürburgring 24 Hours, the car has also competed in the VLN Endurance Racing Championship, clocking up over 84-hours of race time.
Rather remarkably the car has been shod with almost 900 Falken tyres each season, either slick, wet or intermediate in nature, which last for around eight laps of the demanding 25-mile Nürburgring circuit. The 997 has accrued four podium finishes in total, completing 553 laps using over 7,000 litres of fuel in the process.
The Falken 911 is now for sale online priced at Euro 500,000, Falken suggests it would make an ideal Christmas present. The car is scheduled to make one last trek from its base in Offenbach, Germany, to the Essen Motor Show on 27 November to 4 December 2015, where it will appear on Falken’s stand.
