New Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 has Biggest 911 Engine Ever Offered

Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is powered by a 500hp motor.

Porsche unveiled today what could be the last 911 variant based on the current design. Porsche is expected to unveil a new 911 design this fall. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 does not fail to impress though. Limited to 600 vehicles worldwide, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 brings together in a sports car the attributes that have made the Porsche 911 GT3 a consistent winner on the race track. The motorsport-derived 4.0-liter engine, already the highest displacement 911 engine ever, also features the highest per-liter output -- 125 horsepower (hp) per liter. At 8,250rpm the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 gives you access to 500hp.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 sprints from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.8 seconds, and with its gearing designed for the race circuit it reaches the 124 mph mark on the race track in under 12 seconds.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0's outstanding driving dynamics come from numerous, meticulously coordinated details. In addition to using suspension components typically encountered in motor racing, weight reduction is also of supreme importance. Equipped as standard with lightweight components such as light but strong carbon fiber sport bucket seats, carbon fiber front fenders and luggage compartment lid, and weight-optimized carpets, the two-seater's ready-for-action weight is just 2,998 lbs with a full fuel tank. The 911 GT3 RS 4.0's power-to-weight ratio is 5.99 lbs/hp.

With a manufacturer's suggested retail price starting at $185,000 (excluding destination), the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 goes on sale in the United States in late 2011. There will be only 600 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 cars made. Are you putting your order in today?

Why is this a hot car?
It is possibly one of the best race cars that are street-legal. You get the latest race sport technology in the classic beauty of a 911.
