Porsche unveils go-faster 2010 911 GT3 RS

Porsche 2010 GT3 RS fq

After the recent introduction of its latest 911 Turbo model, Porsche has just unveiled details and photos of its 2010 911 GT3 RS. The new model receives a host of upgrades, including an increase in power from a naturally aspirated 3.8-litre flat-six (previously 3.6-litres) that brings total output to 450 bhp —15 more than its standard GT3 counterpart. No suprises that power is put through a six-speed manual transmission with shorter ratios than the one in the stock GT3.

Handling is improved by Porsche’s purpose-built PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) suspension, a wider track both front and rear has been made possible by larger wheel arch covers. Dynamic engine mounts are also a feature that are able to adjust their stiffness and damping effect depending on driving conditions.

Exterior styling is where it’s all got exciting, the new RS is on of the most outrageous cars Porsche has ever built with dominating graphics, revised front and rear fascias, and a new carbon fibre rear wing mounted on aluminum stays.

Lowering weight as always is a priority, and the new GT3 RS gets an optional lithium-ion battery that saves 10kg over the standard unit and a special lightweight titanium exhaust system.

Early pricing has been listed for the American market at $132,800 USD. The official introduction of the GT3 RS is set for the upcoming at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.
