- SSR Performance presents vehicle designs
- DTM season opener this weekend in Portimao
Munich. Just in time for the DTM season opener in Portimao, Portugal, SSR Performance is presenting the vehicle designs of its Porsche 911 GT3 R. The top-class driver line-up, consisting of Porsche factory driver Laurens Vanthoor (BEL), who will be driving the #92, and contract driver Dennis Olsen (NOR), on the #94, already set an exclamation mark.
The unmistakable SSR green, aggressive lines and eye-catching color gradients characterize the vehicle’s look. In order to visually distinguish the two vehicles from each other, bright red color elements were chosen on the side mirrors and wiper arm on the #94. The starting numbers placed on the sides and roof of the cars are especially striking this year.
To put the car designs in the right light, SSR Performance organized a special photo shoot.
The team is supported by the EDAG Group, Allianz Generalvertretung Wolfram Blank e.K., Becker Carbon, DC AVIATION, Hochwald Sprudel, itWheels by tyremotive, KW Suspensions, Laco watches, MOTUL, NIMEX, Riemensperger Mechanic Werkstätte GmbH and Valuniq Business Consulting.
Stefan Schlund, team owner SSR Performance: “We have been working on the design since the end of last year. I think we got everything out of the 911 and I’m very happy with the design. Many thanks to the sponsors for fitting very well into the concept and presenting themselves in black or white. With our #92 and #94, we are putting the SSR and Porsche in the perfect spotlight in the big DTM field.”
