Wimmer tunes Porsche GT2 RS to 517kW

Most people would think that the Porsche 911 GT2 RS was already fast enough. It covers 0-100km/h in just 3.5 seconds and goes on to a top speed of 330km/h. While no one is doubting that the GT2 RS is a uncompromising performance machine there are some nutters out there that just have to go faster.

To help them out German tuner Wimmer RS has a package for the 911 GT2 RS that shaves 0.2 seconds off of the supercar’s 0 to 100 km/h sprint time.

The tuner’s upgrades are concentrated on the 3.6-liter six-cylinder boxer engine which receives a remapped engine controller, optimised turbochargers, a sport air-filter, new air-intake and a valve-controlled sport exhaust system along with sport catalysts.

All that tweaking adds up to a new total output of 517 kW and 810 Nm of torque previously 462 kW.

In terms of performance the sprint time now comes in at 3.3 seconds and the Wimmer RS GT2 RS hits 200 km/h in just 9.5 seconds. Top speed has been increased to a death-wish 356 km/h.
