At the top of the 911 game, the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is here and stands as the fastest and most powerful in its lineup until now.
To make sure it’s the best, a new clip from XCAR takes the supercar for a ride on the track to check out its goodies. While all the adrenaline lovers might choose the 911 GT3 RS, if they can afford it, of course, everyday drivers might love the car from afar. Why is that? The supercar does not have any rear seats due to a roll cage that track cars usually have, it is not as comfortable as expected and the engine gets a bit too loud. It might be suitable for a night out with the guys, but not for grocery shopping in the weekends.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS was first shown at the Geneva Motor Show this year, bringing a large rear wing, with some extra cooling elements on the engine lid, prominent splitter, front wings with air ducts. Under its hood there is a 4.0 liter six-cylinder flat naturally aspired engine that produces 500 HP (368 kW) and 460 Nm (340 lb-ft) of torque. The model goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds and the top speed stands at 322 km/h (200 mph). The sports car sells for around $195,171.
The new 2016 Porsche 911 GT3RS is a car to be driven on the track as it was developed to be one for it. It does live up to its reputation of being the most extreme version of the 911 and as you can see in the video, but it is meant to be driven on the track and less on the streets.
