Walter Rohrl, the famous German rally and auto racing driver, got behind the wheel of a new Porsche GT2 RS and did what he knows best- and we have the video witht the drive test!
The 3,020-pound GT2 RS gets 620 twin-turbocharged horses from its 3.6-liter engine, making it the most powerful Porsche you can legally put on the roads. That’s 90 more horses pushing 154 pounds less weight than in the previous version, and it gets five percent better fuel economy.
Ground control is handled with tires specifically created for the car, carrying it from zero to sixty miles per hour in 3.4 seconds. On the one hand, that’s 0.3 slower than the Porsche Turbo S; on the other, there’s a 205 mph top speed and a 7:18 ‘Ring time.
Just 500 GT2 RS models will be built at a price of $245.000. The car will make its official debut at the Moscow Auto Show on August 25th.
