PORSCHE 911 GT3 RS
THE CAR FOR THE POST-LUNCH DRIVE WAS THE GT3 RS. The RS looks quite similar to the GT3 except for the fact that it has a few extra air vents to dissipate the extra heat generated by the 3,996-cc flat six engine that produces extra 20 PS over the 500 of the GT3. There is another extra 10 Nm of torque, so that’s 470 Nm on tap.
The big difference is in the interior as it comes with a half roll-cage and race seats with racing harness and regular seat-belts. Once you get into the car, you fit snugly in the racing seat, turn the ignition and the flat six roars into life waiting for you to select first gear of the quick-shifting PDK gearbox and you are on your way. The GT3 RS is more like a race car put on the road. The suspension set-up is on the stiffer side compared to the GT3, the steering feels more direct, you can hardly tell the difference in performance as 20 PS over the 500 is very difficult to tell.
The GT3 RS is a car that you can drive on the road and do track-days without any changes to the car.
