Porsche 911 GT2 RS Revealed at Goodwood


Most powerful Porsche 911 ever, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS packs a twin turbo 3.8 litre flat six with 515kW and 750Nm

Porsche has unveiled its meanest, angriest and of course fastest 911 ever at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8 litre flat six that produces 515kW and 750Nm which is mated to Porsche’s dual-clutch PDK transmission. Power is sent to the rear wheels, and when launch control is engaged, the 911 GT2 RS will rocket to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds, onto a top speed of 340km/h.

Porsche has kept the weight low, with the 911 GT2 RS weighing in at just 1470kg, or 1440kg if you specify the optional Weissach pack.

Expensive and exotic materials abound the body – the exhaust is fashioned from titanium, the roof is made from magnesium, and carbon fibre is used throughout the car, including the bonnet, front wings and parts of the rear.

The aggressive body kit is standard, as is the 20 and 21inch staggered wheels and ceramic composite brakes.

Inside the seats are carbon fibre backed, and there is red alcantara and black leather throughout, along with carbon fibre weave trim.

Porsche Communication Management (PCM) manages the infotainment system and includes the Porsche Track Precision app, which allows users to record track data on a smartphone.

A number of customisation options will be available, and prices are rumoured to start from $645,000, with limited numbers coming to Australia.
