The Porsche 911 GT2 RS sports car has been launched in India, priced at Rs 3.88 crore ex-showroom. The 911 GT2 RS is one of the most extreme 911s and a limited edition model, and India has been allocated multiple units of the car.
The 911 GT2 RS launched on Wednesday is the second generation version of this highly-focused sportscar. The car is powered by 3.8-litre, inline six-cylinder engine that sends a stonking 700PS and 750Nm to the rear wheels.
Claimed 0-100kmph time for the car is a mind-boggling 2.8 seconds, making it one of the quickest accelerating cars on the planet.
More importantly, the 911 GT2 RS sports active suspension management which adjusts damping on each wheel depending on the surface condition.
Then there’s stuff like rear-axle steering to help the car go quicker around corners along with torque vectoring that ensures all four wheels have optimum traction and power.
Carbon ceramic brakes are part of standard equipment, while the bodywork is as aerodynamic and sharp as it gets. Porsche has, in fact, stripped the 911 GT2 RS bare, getting rid of everything that’s not needed to go faster.
Needless to say, a lot of the car is made of carbon fibre, including the hood, front wheels, ORVM covers, wheel arch vents as also the rear air intakes.
