The Porsche 911 GT3 RS, a more hardcore version of the 911 GT3 was recently revealed by the Stuttgart-based auto maker. It is motivated by the same 3.8 litre 6-cylinder engine, but instead of producing 435HP in the GT3, it pumps out a total of 450HP. Mated to a 6 speed sequential gearbox (with a short transmission ratio compared to the standard GT3), the GT3 RS features higher downforce compared to the standard GT3 (with an extra-large carbon-fiber rear wing), a lighter lithium-ion battery (by 10 kg, available as an option) and a lightweight titanium sports exhaust system.
Futhermore, it comes standard with dynamic engine mounts that change in their stiffness and damping effect as well as PASM suspension with wider tracks on both axles. Being slightly wider than the standard GT3, thanks to additional wheel arch covers, it is offered with 245/35 ZR 19 sports tires up front and 325/30 ZR 19 tires at the back. It also sits closer to the ground compared to the milder GT3. It goes on sale in Germany from January next year, with a 122,400 Euros price tag.
