We’ve already reported on the details of the 2013 Le Mans contender, which had its race debut in the 6 hours of Silverstone last weekend. The team finished 4th and 6th in the GTE Pro Class with Marc Lieb, Richard Lietz, Romain Dumas driving the first car and Jörg Bergmeister, Patrick Pilet, Timo Bernhard on the second one.

The 2013 991 RSR features a 4.0-litre flat-six producing 454bhp, channeled through the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox. Its wheelbase is 100 mm longer from its predecessor, making the car more predictable on the limit.
