German tuner Edo Competition has unveiled its latest -and, probably, the last- program for the outgoing Porsche 911 996 GT2 super-coupe. Not that I think that the sports car really needs all these pricey enhancements, but, as the saying goes, once you get locked into an amateur motor sports business, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.



The car comes equipped with larger brakes with four-piston fixed calipers, KW fully adjustable sports suspension, modified engine, transmission and exhaust system.

There is also new aerodynamically enhanced body kit and sporty 18-inch wheels fit with Michelin Pilot tires in sizes 235/45-18 front and 335/30-18 rear.

The wide body kit is reported to be made entirely of carbon-fiber. The kit includes a new front skirt, radiator inlets, brake cooling ducts, wider fenders, a front lip spoiler, and mesh inserts in the front and rear.

Equipped with a 542 hp, 755 Nm engine, the Edo Competition 911 GT2 R accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and reaches 200 km/h in only 11 seconds, making a top speed of 330 km/h.
