Porsche GT3 RS: Britain's Best Drivers' Car 2010

Porsche 911 GT3 RS

After driving Porsche ’s 911 GT3 RS earlier this year, it comes as no surprise that the weekly mag Autocar has voted it as Britain’s best drivers’ car for 2010.

With 320 kW and a staggering 430Nm of twist from its 3.8 liter boxer 6 engine, Porsche’s slim and trimmed down version of the GT3 is most definitely a worthy adversary in today’s tightly contested super sports car market. Donington Park was the battleground for what turned out to be a landslide victory for Zuffunhausen. Autocar’s Editor, Chas Hallett was quoted: “The Porsche 911 GT3 RS was a clear winner; each of our seven judges placed the car at the top of their list. On the day of our road and track testing at Donington, the GT3 RS’ drive was simply the most involving, enjoyable and satisfying of all the sports cars involved.”

The other cars involved formed quite an impressive list of machinery valued at just under £ 1 million. Autocar’s judging team also tested the line-up on some of the UK’s best driving roads before making their final decision to give on-road manners a fair say in the outcome.

Noble’s M600 came in second place, with judges praising its polished, surprisingly forgiving chassis and steering, the predictability of its handling and brutal straight-line speed. Third place went to the brilliant Ferrari 458 Italia , the fastest car on the day around the Donington circuit at 1min 15.9sec.

Well, i congratulate Donington Park , even if its too late! I really love watching drifting cars and driving one of the this super cars is just a rare opportunity.

Oh! I would like to see the video or the record time of the race. I can’t believe that Ferrari lose against the GT3! Where could I watch the video? Any suggestion pleasesmiley

I think its better if they mention the capability of the car and the performance of the engine! It just said in the article that they trimmed down it, so tell me how does it affect the performance of the car.

Hey, where are all the people to condemn the red accents and red wheels of this car like they did with the boss Mustang? Sure, the Porsche has more cache but the idea is the same.

It’s an actual production model, albeit with limited numbers. Not a big fan of the new livery, gimme a Viper Green one any day!

It’s nice to hear that Ferrari 458 Italia is the fastest car in the said event.

Why wouldn’t the other vehicles be easily insured? You would be surprised that the price tag has little to do with the insurance premium.
