Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the most powerful road-legal 911 ever and is powered by a flat-six producing 700 hp and 750 Nm torque; 0-100 kmph in just 2.8 s
Following the launch of 911 GT3 RS in February, Porsche introduced the 911 GT2 RS with a price of Rs. 3.88 crore (ex-showroom) in India. It is more than Rs. 1 crore expensive than the GT3 RS because it is not only part of the technologically-advanced 911 series, but the most powerful production 911 ever made.
The internationally popular model has been well-received thus far in the domestic market. Porsche Centre Bengaluru has now delivered the fastest road-legal 911 to Boopesh Reddy, whose Bren Garage houses a Ferrari 458 Speciale, Porsche Cayman GT4 and the only Porsche 911 R delivered in India.
The Managing Director of Bren Corporation has plentiful experience in infrastructure and property development, and is also one of the avid automobile enthusiasts known across the country with a luxury- and performance-brimmed garage. His latest addition, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, made its world premiere at the 2017 Goodwood Festival Of Speed.
The GT2 RS put the pedal to the metal and took the Nurburgring by storm by becoming the fastest rear-wheel-drive production car with a lap time of 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds. It got the better of the awe-inspiring 918 Spyder by around 10 seconds, as Porsche exceeded the initial expectations of clocking in under 7 minutes and 5 seconds.
The Lamborghini Huracan Performante rival derives power from the 3.8-litre flat six engine that develops a maximum of 700 horsepower and 750 Nm of peak torque. it is mated to a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission sending power only to the rear axle. It can go from zero to 100 kmph in just 2.8 seconds before topping out 340 kmph.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS comes equipped with magnesium roof, lightweight titanium exhaust, carbon fibre front wings, bonnet, air ducts and mirror casing. The performance obsession meant the mighty supercar weighs under 1.5 tonnes due to the use to lightweight materials. Porsche has also given the option of Weissach Package with magnesium alloy wheels and carbon fibre roof to further reduce the weight by 30 kg.
