I you are a track day fanatic and happen to have few millions Ringgit in your account, you might be interested in this supercar. The Porsche GT3 RS is the closest thing to a fully prepped track car but then, the car is still road legal which means you still can drive your Porsch for a weekend drive around city.BUt with all the power and performance, i dont think you would leave the track that much.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is powered by a tweaked version of the GT3’s naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six tuned to deliver more power and rev even faster and more dynamically. It produces a maximum output of 450 horsepower or 15 HP more than its GT3 counterpart and 35 HP more than the previous generation 997 RS.
The GT3 RS comes exclusively with a short-shifting, six-speed manual gearbox optimised on this occasion with shorter gear ratios than on the regular GT3, for even more rapid acceleration. A specially developed Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system is also fitted to the GT3 RS. PASM, together with wider front and rear tracks, allows for even greater cornering grip.
For the exterior, the new RS is by far the most outrageous looking car Porsche has ever built with large-and-in-charge graphics, revised front and rear fascias consistent with Porsche’s current design themes, and a new carbon fiber rear wing mounted on aluminum supports.
What’s interesting is that for 2010, the GT3 RS features a lithium-ion battery. No it’s not a plug-in hybrid. The car now replaces its conventional lead-acid battery with a lithium-ion, helping reduce weight by 22 lbs.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS is expected to go on sale in most European countries at the end of the year, with the UK and the United States following in early 2010.
