The limited edition Porsche 911 Carrera S Martini Racing Edition has been built to celebrate the company’s return to the Le Mans 24 Hour race.
Just 80 units will be built sporting the vermouth company’s distinctive blue, red and black racing livery. Other changes include a fixed rear spoiler and an altered front bumper with modified air intakes and lip spoiler.
Inside there are body colour dashboard accents, illuminated door sills, a sports steering wheel and plenty of Martini Racing Edition badging. The Sport Chrono package is fitted as standard, as are black leather seats with electric adjustment, satellite navigation and a Bose sound system.
Despite wearing colours similar to those adorning the Porsche 917 and 935 “Moby Dick” Le Mans race cars, as well as track specials from other marques like Alfa Romeo and Lancia, the limited edition model doesn’t feature any power upgrades or special tuning. This means there’s a 3.8-litre flat-six engine hanging out the back capable of generating 294kW of power and 440Nm of torque.
According to Porsche, the 911 Martini Racing Edition can complete the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.1 seconds when it’s equipped with the company’s seven-speed dual-clutch automated transmission and the Sport Plus button has been engaged.
The Martini Racing Edition will only be available in China, Japan, Latin America and select European markets, including Great Britain, the Netherlands, Spain and Ukraine. The limited edition model won’t be sold in Australia nor, interestingly, the company’s home market, Germany.
Porsche says that it will, however, offer the decal set for interested buyers in certain markets where the limited edition model won’t be available.
