Porsche 911 GT3 R #80 Rexy AO Racing IMSA 2023 Sebring 12 Hrs GTD in 1:18 scale


This is the Porsche 911 GT3 R #80 AO Racing IMSA 2023 Sebring 12 Hrs GTD in 1:18 scale by Topspeed.

Earlier this month, AO Racing‘s “GT3 Raw,” a custom Porsche 911 GT3 R named after “Rexy” the Tyrannosaurus Rex made its debut at Twelve Hours of Sebring. Already a fan-favorite, the “GT3-Rawr” will be competing for AO Racing for the rest of the 2023 IMSA WeatherTech and World Endurance Championship season.

The idea behind”Rexy” comes from team principal and driver PJ Hyett who proudly wears a T-Rex for his son and a unicorn for his daughter on his racing helmet. This season, Hyett will be joined by co-drivers Sebastian Priaulx and Gunnar Jeannette for the endurance rounds.

“I’m thrilled to be one of the guys that will drive the GT3-Rawr. Hopefully, Rexy goes as fast as it looks and we can come home with a good result after our disappointing Daytona. We really want to give the fans something to cheer for as Rexy makes it’s mark both on & off track,” said Gunnar Jeannette.

While AO Racing’s finish was unable to finish at the front of the pack in the 1,000 miles of Sebring, it has plenty of opportunities to get back on course beginning with its race at Long Beach

In the 2023 IMSA Sebring 12 Hours, the Porsche 911 GT3 R #80, fielded by GTD AO Racing, took on the challenging Sebring International Raceway. While the driver lineup can change during the race, the uniqueness of this event lies in its storied history. The Sebring 12 Hours is one of the oldest and most prestigious sports car races in the United States, known for its grueling circuit and demanding conditions. The Porsche 911 GT3 R's performance at Sebring highlighted its endurance and competitiveness, showcasing the enduring legacy of Porsche in endurance racing and adding another chapter to this iconic event's rich history.

This model is hand painted and polished to a beautiful finish and has a sealed body. Resin models are
exceptionally accurate of scale, shape and detail. Each model is created using a variety of production
processes, to achieve this precision. They are produced using a composite material referred to in the
industry as “resin”. Photo etched parts, die-cutting, tampo printing and waterslide decals are often used
for the most authentic replication.
