Porsche, most popular for their high performance and luxurious cars, has recently introduced the 911 GT3 RS in India. It feels good to see the German manufacturer consider the Indian market seriously. Though only one unit of this sports car has arrived in our country, it isn't long before we see a few of them running coolly on our streets. Check out its pictures.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS was unveiled at an event held at the Porsche Centre in Bengaluru. It's basically a road-legal, track-focused variant of the 911 range.
The car has the 911 Turbo's body making it as the closest road-legal race car with its RS-specific aerodynamic add-on parts.
The aerodynamically shaped design of car has a fascia that exudes a very elegant look. It boasts of two large headlamps and a front spoiler lip, which extends close to the road.
The front wheel arch vents are also uniquely designed. They extend into the upper section of the wings to increase down-force at the front axle.
Another characteristic element that reminds this is the large rear wing. Apart from its functionality, it also reinforces its dominant look.
The GT3 RS is a masterpiece to represent a lightweight configuration. While the rooftop is made of magnesium, the carmaker has utilised carbon fibre for the motor and baggage compartment tops.
The weight-saving measures can be seen in the cabin equipped with full bucket seats as well. The dashboard is stripped down and door handles have been replaced by straps to reduce weight.
Other characteristic features on the 911 GT3 RS include a rear-axle steering and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus with fully variable rear axle differential lock.
Powering the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a 4.0-litre, six-cylinder mill producing 493bhp and 480Nm of torque. This unit is the largest naturally aspirated engine in the 911 range.
The engine comes mated to a PDK transmission, propelling the GT3 RS from 0-100kmph in 3.3 seconds. The 200kmph mark is achieved in 10.9 seconds.
