Porsche has introduced the 911 GT3 RS on a global scale, and its Indian division has announced a price of Rs 3.25 crore (ex-showroom, India). More power and significant aerodynamic improvements, including the largest wing ever installed on a road-going 911, have made the elixir meaner according to Porsche. Additionally, it has a brand-new drag reduction system that has never been installed on a production vehicle before.
The vehicle is powered by a 4.0-litre flat-six engine producing 542bp. It reaches a tonne in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 296kmph. According to Porsche, the engine is mated to an improved 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. In comparison to the standard 911, it has one gear less and shorter gear ratios. In addition, the vehicle has three drive modes: Normal, Sport, and Track.
Aerodynamics is the focus of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The new model has more than twice the downforce of its predecessor and three times the downforce of the current 911 GT3. Porsche claims that at 200kmph, the car can generate 409kg of downforce, which increases to 806kg at 284kmph.
The car lost its boot somewhere along the way to becoming more aerodynamic. The new GT3 RS is the first road car with a radiator in the middle of its nose. This was first seen in Porsche’s Le Mans-winning 911 RSR.
The car also features the largest swan neck rear wing ever installed on a road-going 911. It is about six feet wide and taller than the car’s roof. In addition, the car receives new side blades, wing inlets, and a rear splitter that is a modified version of the one found on the standard 911.
