Have you guys ever heard of a little vehicle called the Porsche 911 GT2 RS? Yeah, we thought so. After posting a Nurburgring time of seven minutes, 18 seconds, the fastest and most powerful road-going sports car that Porsche has ever built is already on every car enthusiast’s lips. As well it should be.

Although it is very well known, Porsche recently took this vehicle to its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Andreas Preuninger, Manager of High Performance Vehicles for Porsche, took a little time out to explain the philosophy for the GT2 RS.

As a reminder, the GT2 RS has a 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine that is boosted by two turbochargers that produce 620hp. The car is also assisted in this power by a weight reduction of 154 lbs. This makes the RS sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds, 0 to 124 mph in just 9.8 seconds, and 0 to 186 mph in 28.9 seconds. Its top speed is 205 mph and its power-to-weight ratio is 4.9 lb per horsepower.

Even so, Porsche always finds a way... and added a new carbon-fiber induction system, so the result is another 30 hp and the Turbo S, a brand-new model in the lineup.

Out of 100 people who would actually pick the 911 out of this group? come on, this exclusive level of automobiles its more to do with how the car looks and makes you feel over total performance. I for one would take the Lambo or R8 before even looking at the 911 Stretched out beetle.

When all the technical details are hashed out, Preuninger takes the GT2 RS up the hill at Goodwood for some rear-engined, flat-six goodness.

The question is, what is limit of “exotic” and value for money? Ok, +200,000 Euro for a 620bhp monster… but a sticker as a badge and perspex windows!?!?
