The 2018 911 GT2 RS introduced at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England will be the fastest street-legal Porsche 911 ever produced. Rocketing from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds and hitting a top speed of 211 mph, it’s insanely fast for a factory-built vehicle.
This astonishing performance is made possible by a seriously lightweight body, aerodynamics that maximize downforce and a 3.8-liter six-cylinder twin-turbo engine that produces a jaw-dropping 700 hp (515 kW) and 553 lb-ft of torque.
Weight reduction measures include a magnesium roof, carbon body panels, titanium silencers and polycarbonate rear and side windows. Engine innovations include variable turbine geometry (VTG) in the turbochargers that optimizes torque throughout the rpm range and super cooling of intake air by atomised water in the intercooler system.
Of course, perfection comes at a price. The 2018 911 GT2 RS will be listed at 293,200 US dollars, making it the most expensive Porsche 911 yet.
