Porsche has launched a limited edition 911 based on the 911 GT3 RSR racing car.
Just 600 units of the German manufacturer’s fastest ever road car will be commissioned and it will use the same 4.0-litre engine as its track counterpart.
That means the coupe will have 500bhp at its disposal allowing for a 0-62mph sprint time of 3.9 seconds and it will also hit 124mph in less than 12 seconds.
To cope with the model’s increased power, Porsche has included a range of chassis modifications and tweaks over the standard 911 range. It features a Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system as well as an electronic damper adjustment system that continuously alters the forces working on each individual wheel.
Front air deflection vanes (flics) also help by increasing downforce on the front axle to improve traction, control and handling.
Weight has also been kept to a minimum on the model with lightweight components littering the powerful two-seater. Across its body are carbon fibre wings and plastic rear windows while inside, even the carpets have been ‘weight optimised’.
The rest of the interior is similarly designed with the model’s racing heritage emphasised throughout with ‘RS 4.0’ livery and carbon fibre inserts. Seat belts are replaced by ‘seat belt harnesses’ on the Clubsport model too along with a half roll cage.
The model is obviously fast from the outside too with a flashy Carrara White finish, low slung profile and more obvious rear spoiler and wing designs.
Pricing for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 will start from £128,466 when it goes on sale in July.
