Porsche 911 GT3 RS now in India

Porsche 911 GT3 RS now in India

Shown first during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March last year, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS has now being unveiled in India. This hard-core track-bred version of the already extreme 911 GT3 has arrived at the Porsche Centre Bengaluru.

Thanks to its revised drivetrain, aerodynamics and lightweight architecture, the new 911 GT3 RS has set a lap time of 7 minutes and 20 seconds on the North loop of the Nurburgring, beating the iconic Carrera GT by 9 seconds.

The GT3 RS is powered by a bespoke 4-litre, flat-six engine developing 500bhp and 480Nm of torque. It’s mated to a 7-speed PDK gearbox powering the rear wheels. Now despite being a rear drive car, the RS can accelerate from 0-100kmph in 3.3 seconds and hit 200kmph in 10.9 seconds. The rear engine layout certainly helps with traction off the line there.

The 911 GT3 RS comes with a magnesium roof and carbon fibre engine and luggage compartment lids. This makes the RS model around 10 kilograms lighter than the 911 GT3. In addition, the lightweight roof lowers the car's centre of gravity. The body comes from the 911 Turbo, and it signifies the model’s status as the closest road-legal race car with its RS-specific aerodynamic add-on bits like the front spoiler lip and the large rear wing. Another characteristic is the unique front wheel arch air vents that extend into the upper section of the wings – they increase downforce at the front axle.

The 911 GT3 RS sits at the top of the 911 range and represents the best of what Porsche offers for those who are into track days and circuit driving.
