New Porsche 911 GT2 RS details released

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is only making it's world debut at the Moscow motor show in August the 25th but here are some advanced details about the car to whet your appetite. Dubbed as the top of the range 911, the GT2 RS is the fastest and most powerful road-sports car that Porsche have ever made. This has been achieved by increasing the horse power by 90 and yet dropping the overall weight, thus increasing the power to weight ratio and brining it in at an impressive 2.21kg / horse power.

As is the trend with most new cars in development, even the Porsche 911 GT2 RS has focused on reducing fuel consumption and reducing emissions. The figures are down approximately 5% compared to 911 GT2. The engine is a 3.6 litre 6-cylinder and is boosted by 2 turbochargers. This gives the 911 GT2 RS a very impressive 0-100km/h in just 3.5seconds and a top speed of 330km/h.

Regarding the looks, there are some improvements over the GT2 version. The wheels are wider and the wheel arches are flared up at the front. The front and rear spoiler lip has been upgraded and is now 10mm higher and made from carbon finish. The interior is also styled out in various sporting features, with light weight bucket seats once again made of carbon-fibre finish. There has also been extra styling on the roof lining, steering wheel rim, gearshift and handbrake.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS will be available in Europe in September and in the US in October and will be limited to 500 units. The price in Germany will be 237,578 Euros.
