In February 2006, Porsche revealed the first generation 997 GT3, commonly now known as the 997.1 GT3. In addition to a new 415 PS (305 kW) 3.6 litre flat-six engine, the vehicle featured ''zero lift'' aerodynamics, meaning the car creates only aerodynamic downforce and no grip-diminishing ''lift'' upwards and away from the road surface. This particular example is finished in Basalt Black Metallic over Black Leather/Alcantara and has been upgraded with track focused brake rotors and suspension springs for more aggressive handling. Additional track inspired upgrades include a full roll cage along with a fire suppressant system.
