Just because the Porsche 911 GT2 RS is already a powerful car in its own right, it doesn’t mean that people will shy away from giving it higher levels of performance.
At the Geneva Motor Show, German tuning firm Sportec showed that even a car as powerful as the 911 GT2 RS can still be tweaked to become more beastly than it already is. Taking a second upgrade program - the SP 800R – for the 911 GT2 RS, Sportec gave the Porsche’s 3.6-liter V6 boxer engine a thorough modification program featuring new sports camshafts, bigger air coolers, a new engine software, hybrid turbochargers, and a titanium exhaust system with a customized manifold. All these changes translate to an increased output of 800 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque. Mighty impressive, dare we say.
The glorious performance modifications weren’t the only things Sportec worked on with the 911 GT2 RS. Addressing the need to give the car an aerodynamic boost, the German tuner also gave it new front and rear spoiler lips and a set of 20” seven-spoke black alloy wheels.
All told, Sportec’s SP 800R program slashes four-tenths of a second off of the car’s 0-60 mph time time – 3.5 seconds to 3.1 seconds – while also ratcheting up the speed to 231 mph, which, if you don’t know, is nearing the stratosphere occupied by the McLaren MP4-12C and its 240 mph top speed.
