New Porsche 911 GT2 RS – Dreaming Of A Track!
The event everyone expected is here! The first official meeting with the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS made me check what day are we – is the Christmas today? I think I could find a lot of comparisons or top areas to introduce GT2 RS in, but its looks recommend it as a real warrior. A warrior in the race with the track!
But we are not talking about how it looks, but about how it drives. Of course, you can’t pass and not see the unpainted carbon fiber at the exterior, over the lip of the front bumper, ready to bite the first corner, or over the huge spoiler capable of gluing the tires to the tarmac, and the rims with a single-centered-stud. Briefly, you can almost not believe that you are in front of a race car, ready to hit the public roads, among the electric or diesel engines. Just imagine a Porsche 911 GT2 RS and a Toyota Prius, rim to rim, at the traffic light.
And that’s not all. As we expected, the interior of the supercar of Stuttgart suggests the atmosphere of… racing. The seats are not the most comfortable ones, the Alcantara insertions are surrounding you in the entire cockpit, the carbon fiber almost suffocates you with her presence, and when you thought that you can relax, the three pedals and all six gears of the manual transmission challenge you to a life and death duel. In addition, the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS is not keeping up with you, you are keeping up with Porsche 911 GT2 RS. You are already thinking about a way to escape from the car? The doors just closed, you can’t exit in the back, because of the roll-cage, so, you’d better buckle-up.
Under the hood, the 3.6-liter engine makes you fell the power/weight ratio of 4.87 lbs per HP. Yes, Porsche 911 GT2 RS comes with 620 HP and just 3,020 lbs. Impressive? Of course! But even more impressive is that the German supercar is capable of violent accelerations, as 0-60 in 3.5 seconds, 0-125 mph in 9.8 seconds and 0-185 mph in 28.9 seconds. Top speed? At 205 mph you can brag with the same sensations Walter Rohrl feels every day, or most likely, you will ashamedly admit that you feel the same fear as a child that you force to enter a roller-coaster.
Someone better pinch me and bring me back to reality. Is Paris Motor Show 2010, Porsche 911 GT2 RS is standing still, but I can still brag that I’ve met the most powerful street Porsche in history!
