In terms of performance, the new 911 GT2 RS speaks such an impressive language, that even hardened professional drivers such as Walter Röhrl and Mark Webber are lost for words.
The numbers speak for themselves: 700PS (690hp), 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds and 211mph (340km/h) flat-out.
Larger turbos, an additional water-spray cooling system, and a new titanium exhaust are the major contributors for the mind-numbing amount of power the 3.8-liter flat six churns out.
Upgrading chassis and features like rear-axle steering, super sticky tires, and carbon-fiber aero bits galore all help the new “widowmaker” put down all of its 690hp.
As a refresher, the new 911 GT2 RS sees Porsche take turbo technology to new heights. The biturbo engine with a displacement of 3.8 litres delivers 59 kW (80 hp) more power than the engine in the previous model. For the first time, a Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transfers the enormous power to the rear wheels. Thanks to its lightweight construction and thoroughbred motorsport chassis with rear axle steering, this fascinating two-seater offers competitive driving dynamics at speeds of up to 340 km/h. The optional Weissach package improves the weight-topower ratio even further as the lighter components made from carbon and magnesium provide a weight saving of 30 kg. Read the full release here.
