The company globally unveiled and launched its second-gen 911 GT3 RS with a price-tag or ₹2.75 crore (ex-showroom, India). The model that’s track-ready, features a host of performance tweaks to make it even faster than the standard GT3. The biggest tweak is to the 520hp, 4.0-litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine, where power is up by 20hp thanks to new intake and exhaust systems, and changes made to the car’s DME (Digital Motor Electronics) engine management.
The track-ready GT3 can hit 100kph 0.1sec faster (at 3.2sec) than the standard car and can go on to hit a top speed of 312kph. The engine sends power via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
The car features an extensively reprogrammed rear-wheel steering system and has a carbon fibre front wings and bonnet (with new NACA ducts to help brake cooling) and a magnesium roof. The interior is fitted with carbon fibre-backed racing seats, lightweight door panels with storage nets and nylon opening loops. There are many other weight saving measures in place as well.
This version costs ₹44 lakh more than the standard 911 GT3 in India.
