996 CSR EVO
This is the most track focused of the 996 CSRs and the most heavily engineered model yet.
Speed and strengthening are the key factors. The CSR EVO’s engine receives top end strengthening and porting to improve reliability and power, plus an IMS upgrade, low temperature thermostat, and a CSR EVO preservation and powerkit pack. Also fitted is an adjustable CSR mechanical differential unique to the EVO model.
CSR EVO 3-way suspension is fitted, plus bespoke anti-roll bars and top mounts. All are fully adjustable for the perfect set-up. Neat touches include CSR EVO custom bodywork with ducting for a third radiator, CSR EVO steering wheel, 18-inch CSR EVO wheels by OZ and a custom CSR EVO centre exit exhaust.
The 996 CSR EVO is unashamedly potent – a machine for pure driving exhilaration.
“CSR has always been about driver focused vehicles, but for the EVO we have really concentrated on building our most circuit capable 996 CSR to date without reducing any of the character and day-to-day driver ethos of the CSR. The engine, drivetrain and suspension have been significantly re-worked and custom front and rear bumpers have been developed to complete the package. The feel and driver feedback from the EVO is all about performance… the bespoke CSR centre exit exhaust not only stands testament to the unique engineering in this vehicle but sounds glorious and unlike any normal Carrera!”

CSR EVO Drivetrain
The drive train benefits from an RPM developed lightweight flywheel and clutch, the first application of a CSR developed mechanical limited slip differential and short shift mechanism. The gear lever has a modified throw and weight
Braking power is courtesy of signature CSR orange 4-piston callipers, CSR floating discs and high performance pads and brake fluid.
CSR EVO Design
Visually the CSR EVO benefits from a number of bespoke modifications for the interior and exterior.
The interior includes a subtle mix of CSR signatures and safety features that include: Deep dish steering wheel, CSR tachometer, and CSR EVO gear lever. The lower dash has been deleted and the centre console has switch gear and ash tray deletes and is colour coded.
For driver comfort a half roll cage is fitted coupled with driver harness and a separate, custom CSR harness bar with deep race bucket seats. CSR mats finish the CSR look.
The stunning exterior for the launch model is presented in custom Merlin Purple and integrates body styling: the new CSR EVO front bumper with aero vent and angled third radiator for additional downforce. The CSR carbon ducktail and side skirts. A lightweight carbon CSR bonnet and custom rear bumper with unique vented exhaust trim.
The whole car is finished off with colour-coded lightweight 18” OZ wheels on Michelin Cup 2 tyres.
