Porsche 911 GT3 RS priced at $177000 in UK
Porsche has announced today the UK prices for the 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The retail price is £94,280 ($177000), including a Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (VTS), a sophisticated vehicle security package approved to Thatcham Category 5 standard, and a Porsche Driving Experience programme.
The exceptionally powerful, normally aspirated engine boasts a displacement of 3.6-litres to generate 305kW (415bhp) at 7,600rpm. Maximum revs are reached at 8,400rpm. The power output per litre of engine capacity is 115.3bhp. These figures are shared with the recently-announced 911 GT3, but bespoke drivetrain components in the RS ensures it puts in an even better performance.
Thanks to a close-ratio six-speed transmission with a single-mass flywheel and 20kg lower vehicle weight, the engine revs up even more freely, thus enabling the 911 GT3 to sprint from zero to 100kph (62mph) in 4.2 seconds. That’s one tenth of a second faster than the GT3. And it takes just 13.3 seconds to hit 200kph (124mph). Maximum speed is 310kph (187mph).
