Porsche 911 GT2 RS launch in India
Porsche’s ultimate driving machine, the 911 GT2 RS, is now available in India. As the road-approved sports car record holder on the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife with a lap time of 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds, the arrival of the special model was celebrated at an exclusive event.
At the heart of Porsche’s fastest 911 of all time is a 3.8 litre, 700 hp biturbo flat engine, which delivers a power icrease of 80 hp over its 3.6-litre predecessor. Weighing in at 1,470 kg with a full fuel tank, the lightweight two-seater accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. The rear-wheel drive Coupé has a top speed of 340 km/h, and with its near-motorsport drive technology, achieves a torque output of 750 Nm (an increase of 50 Nm).
The new model is the first 911 GT2 RS to be equipped with a double-clutch transmission. The Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) has been customised for the GT2 RS and offers special features designed specifically for the track. The Intelligent Shift Program enhances gear shifting, whilst the “Paddle Neutral” function gives greater driver control and is reserved solely for Porsche GT sports cars.
A motorsport chassis with active performance systems is central to the driving performance of the 911 GT2 RS. Ultra High Performance mixed tyres, the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) system as standard, rear-axle steering and active driving systems including the PSM Sport function for faster lap times, combine for optimal driving dynamics.
Visually, the design of the 911 GT2 RS is centred around the vehicle's racing properties from every angle. A wide, low front spoiler lip, striking air intakes on the aerodynamic front end and behind the doors, and the air vent in front of the front lid, typical for 911s in the GT class, reflect the vehicle’s powerful performance credentials. The interior is dominated by red Alcantara, black leather and a carbon-weave finish as standard. A sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles, full bucket seats, and the Clubsport package which includes roll cage and six-point driver seat belt as standard, enhance the ride experience for drivers and passengers further.
Already featuring a lightweight, aluminium-steel composite construction, the Weissach package is available as an option, offering up to 30 kg weight saving for an even greater performance.
The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS is now available with a basic retail price of INR 3.88 Crores. (Ex-showroom, India)
