Porsche 911 GT2 RS
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.
