- Fastest rear wheel drive record holder at Nurburgring
- Lighter and faster than standard 911
- Sprints from 0-100kmph in 2.8-secconds
Soon Porsche will introduce a track focused variant of the 911, called the 911 GT2 RS in India in July. The performance focused race car was officially revealed last year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. At the time of launch, the vehicle is expected to carry an upward price of around Rs 4 crores. Along with a powerful engine, the 911 GT2 RS also gets the unique race inspired seats and a roll-cage.
The vehicle is powered by a 3.8-litre, flat-six twin-turbocharged engine that generates 686bhp of power and 750Nm of torque. Mated to the ZF-sourced seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the vehicle is capable of sprinting from 0-100kmph in just 2.8 seconds and achieves a top speed of 340kmph. Interestingly, the 911 GT2 RS also holds the Nurburgring record for being the fastest rear wheel driven car, with a time of 6:47.30.
As compared to the standard 911, the 911 GT2 RS is lighter in weight due to the use of carbon-fibre for the bonnet, exterior mirror housing, front wings and air duct surrounds. The new titanium exhaust system is stated to be about seven kilograms lighter than before. Moreover, the vehicle uses magnesium alloy wheels and carbon fibre roof and roll bars.
