911 GT3 RS
911 GT3 RS - Racing to the top of its class
Porsche has once again broken down the barrier between sports cars and race cars. The 911 GT3 RS is loaded with the maximum amount of motorsport technology that is currently possible in a street-legal 911, a car that is also suitable for everyday driving.
Extensive modifications to the drivetrain, aerodynamics and lightweight design enhance performance even more than in the 911 GT3. With a lap time of 7 min 20 secs, the new 911 GT3 RS even beats the lap time of the iconic Carrera GT which holds a 7 min 29 secs time for the North Loop of the Nürburgring.
Motorsport expertise is the reason for this superior performance. The 911 GT3 RS is powered by a four-litre six-cylinder engine with 368 kW (500 hp) of power and 460 Nm of torque, combined with a specially developed PDK transmission. The engine, which has the largest displacement and most power of any naturally aspirated engine with direct fuel injection in the 911 family, accelerates the high-performance sports car from zero to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and to 200 km/h in 10.9 seconds.
