George Clooney has made himself a birthday present in the shape of a brand new Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Famous actor George Clooney is celebrating his 54th birthday on Wednesday and the first one with his new wife, Amal, but what would a birthday be to someone rich and famous without an expensive present? According to the UK media, Clooney has taken the sports car in question for a test drive in the United Kingdom but his personal ride will be arriving in the United States. The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS will be replacing an older 911 owned by the star and it will feel right at home in the garage which also includes a Harley Davidson and a 1959 Chevrolet Corvette.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been officially presented to the public during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The model in question has a 4.0 liter flat six-cylinder engine under its hood, naturally aspirated, which is capable of producing a total output of 500 HP (368 kW) and a peak torque of 460 Nm (340 lb-ft), enough to allow the model to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds and to go up to a top speed of 322 km/h (200 mph). The 911 GT3 RS has extra cooling elements on the engine lid, a large rear wing, front wings with air ducts and a prominent splitter to help it stand out. The model stars from 181,690 euros on its home market and in the U.S. is available from 176,895 USD, shipping included.
