Porsche has just unveiled the refreshed Porsche 911 GT3 RS at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS). Based on the 991.2 GT3, the GT3 RS gets more power, revs all the way to 9,000 rpm and more aero.
The same 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six has been recalibrated to deliver 513 hp, 20 hp more than the model it replaces and redlines at 9,000 rpm. A seven-speed PDK is retained, no option for a manual box still. Century sprint takes 3.2 seconds before hitting a top speed of 312 km/h. Without going any further, let Mark Webber, Porsche Works Driver take you through the car:
The 911 GT3 now features optimised aerodynamics, a larger rear wing, recalibrated rear axle steering, 20-inch alloys with 265/35 profile tyres on the front and 21-inch alloys with 325/30 profile tyres at the rear, full carbon fibre bucket seats, lightweight door panels and reduced sound deadening materials.
Additionally, customers can have the Clubsport package at no extra charge that adds roll-over bars, manual fire extinguisher, battery disconnect switch and a six-point harnesses. For the ambitious drivers, the Weissach package further brings down the car’s overall weight by adding more carbon components and magnesium wheels.
