Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Car India - - BULLETIN -

Porsche have for­mally launched the most ex­treme road-le­gal 911 ever made, the 700PS 991.II GT2 RS, at Rs 3.88 crore (base exshow­room).

The GT2 RS, of­ten re­ferred to as the “Wi­d­ow­maker”, was al­ways an ex­treme car. Where the new car is con­sid­ered to be just as easy to drive as any other 911 with its sev­en­speed PDK au­to­matic, its pre­de­ces­sor, the first-ever GT2 RS from the 997 se­ries and its GT2 kin, have al­ways had hairy turbo’d mo­tors and man­ual trans­mis­sions. It’s be­ing some­thing on the edge of rea­son balanc­ing in­sane power and ul­ti­mate driv­ing thrill that makes it so ap­peal­ing.

The num­bers speak for them­selves: 700 PS from the 3.8-litre boxer-six twin-turbo petrol en­gine, 1,470 kg, 476 PS/tonne, 0-100 km/h in 2.8 sec­onds, a top speed of 340 km/h, stan­dard ce­ramic brakes, rear-axle steer­ing, and be­spoke Miche­lin high-per­for­mance tyres. It also cracked the Nür­bur­gringNord­schleife in a record 6’47.3 — quicker than the 918 hy­brid hy­per­car and well be­low an ul­tra-com­pet­i­tive 6’50 on each run.

The Weis­sach Pack­age is on of­fer as well, start­ing from Rs 52.03 lakh and go­ing up to Rs 58.33 lakh with the roll-cage.
