Porsche with a motorsport chassis and 383-kW (520-hp), four-litre, high-speed naturally aspirated engine, has come up with the new 911 GT3 RS.
The high-performance sports car is based on the 911 GT3, which has been refined still further to combine the performanceenhanced engine with a runninggear setup that features re-calibrated rear axle steering. It has been designed for maximum dynamics and precision.
The 911 GT3 RS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/hr in 3.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 312 km/hr. Following the launch of the 911 GT3 and the 911 GT2 RS, this latest release will see Porsche present its third GT road-approved sports car within a year. Aerodynamics and interior are based on the race trim Aerodynamics have determined the design of the wide, weight-optimised body with its classic rigid rear wing.
The racing look continues into the interior with full bucket seats made of carbon to provide secure lateral support in response to high-level driving dynamics. Lightweight door panels with storage nets and opening loops, reduced sound absorption, and the new lightweight rear lid further emphasise the consistency of the material choices.
The most powerful naturally aspirated engine at 520 hp. The four-litre, six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine from the German automobile manufacturer in the new 911 GT3 RS pushes the sports car to new limits. The flat engine delivers 15 kW (20 hp) more than the engine in the previous model and the 911 GT3. Together, with a speed range reaching up to 9,000 rpm, it was the ideal choice as a thoroughbred sports engine. Combined with the specially calibrated seven-speed PDK, the high-performance engine guarantees an outstanding driving performanc.
Motorsport-inspired chassis technology ensures that the chassis offers exceptional driving dynamics. Ball joints on all arms provide even greater precision than conventional elastokinematic bearings. 20- inch lightweight wheels with newly developed 265/35 sports tyres on the front axle enhance agility and steering behaviour, while 21-inch wheels with 325/30 tyres at the rear axle improve traction.
