The most powerful Porsche 911 has been launched.
The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS is now available to buy from your local Porsche centre.
This new 911 GT2 RS produces 80 hp more than the preivous model, thanks to its larger bi-turbo and increased engine size to 3.8 litres.
Porsche have specially designed the exhaust system which is made out of lightweight titanium. It weighs 7kg less than the standard 911 turbo exhaust system.
The front wings, wheel housing vents, air intakes on the rear and exterior mirrors outer casing are all made from carbon fibre reinforced plastic.
The roof is made from magnesium and the bonnet is made from carbon fibre.
Saving even more weight is an option………….
You can opt for the Weissach package.
The Weissach package will save you 30kg of weight. This has been achieved by using more carbon fibre and titanium. The roof, anti-roll bars and the coupling rods are made from carbon fibre. The wheels are made from magnesium.
So that you eagle eyed Porsche spotters will notice the difference between the standard GT2 RS and the Weissach package, the Weissach package has a central strip on the luggage compartment lid and the roof in the same colour of the car.
