Porsche 911 GT3 RS Facelift Unveiled With 520 HP

Porsche India seems to be on a roll in 2018. It also comes as the only transmission option for this auto.

To see how the newcomers compare, we look at the ingredients that go into ensuring these limited edition sports cars are at the top of the game.

Also on show in Geneva will be the Ferrari 488 Pista, the hardcore version of the 488 GTB.

The engine isn't only thing that has been updated as the auto features a modestly revised front fascia with a larger spoiler.

The front spoiler arrangement is known as S-Duct and Ferrari claims it creates strong suction for increased downforce. At the rear, the large wing mounted on the carbon fiber deck lid works in combination with a rear underbody diffusor. These add up to a 20% increase in downforce.

The 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is here!

Somebody broke the press embargo once again...the new Lizard Green GT3 RS, everyone. Originally slated to be called the Porsche 901, Peugeot swooped in and claimed all three-digit auto names with "0" in the middle. The Weissach pack will further reduce weight to about 1430 kilos, with the extensive use of carbon-fibre bits, magnesium wheels, etc. The engine produces 346 lb-ft of torque.

By comparison, the Porsche appears a little puny.

Power comes from a 4.0-litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine that develops 383kW.

Autocar reports that the engine actually develops more power than is claimed and could have been homologated at 530 hp, but Porsche chose to err on the side of caution, quoting Porsche GT boss Andreas Preuninger. The unmistakable flat-six sound escapes the exhaust tips, which are made of titanium like the muffler itself. This translates into the mammoth grip on the track whilst accelerating to 100kmph in just 3 seconds. It also effectively makes more than the GT2 RS, because while both make the same maximum downforce at top speed-750 lbs with wings in their stock settings, 992 lbs at maximum attack-the top speed of the latter is much higher, 211 miles per hour verses 193 miles per hour. Porsche says some changes to the front axle have been made to enhance agility and steering behaviour.

How fast do you like your performance vehicle? 0-100km/h is done in 3.2 seconds - a tenth quicker than before.

Porsche builds driver's cars.

If you are wondering about performance the 520hp, 346 lb-ft flat-six is able to push the GT3 RS from naught to 60 miles per hour in 3.0 seconds, which is a scant 0.1 seconds faster than the previous version.
