Porsche announced today that all the 500 units of the limited edition 911 GT2 RS were sold. As you may know already, the limited edition model was introduced back in August at the 2010 Moscow Auto Salon as one of the most powerful vehicles in its lineup.
Comparing it to the standard 911 GT2, the new car received a power boost of 90 hp and but it is also lighter than the standard model with 70 kilograms or 154 lb.
As expected, it carries a 3.6 litre six-cylinder boxer engine delivering a total output of 620 hp (a power-to-weight ratio of just 4.9 lbs (2.21 kg) per horsepower).
It can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.5 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in just 9.8 seconds, to 300 km/h (187 mph) in 28.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 330 km/h or 205 mph. According to Porsche, the car lapped the Nurburgring-Nordschleife in just 7 minutes and 18 seconds.
Regarding its body kit, the car uses carbon-fibre-reinforced (CFR) components in matt-black surface finish, even wider wheel arches at the front, as well as an upgraded front spoiler lip and rear spoiler lip (made of CFR).
The car is priced from 199,500 without taxes. In Germany, including VAT and national specifications/equipment the new 911 GT2 RS will retail in Germany at a price of 237,578 Euro. Full details about the car here!
Customization is the dream of every car owner for his vehicle. That is what you can do with the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS. For US customers, they can opt to purchase the Clubsport Package to beautify their Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
This Package adds a rear-bolted rollcage, as well as a racing standard six-point seat belt for the driver’s seat. The Package also adds in a switch for the main battery and the installation kit necessary to put it on the 911 GT2 RS. Finally, like all racing vehicles, the Clubsport Package adds in a fire extinguisher and the requite holder assembly to the 911 GT2 RS.
Clubsport Package is standard for other markets outside the United States. Of course, the Clubsport Package is not the end of the customization options for the 911 GT2 RS. Buyers could purchase optional sports bucket seats, for instance. These seats have a folding backrest.
There are also adaptive sports seats available as optional components for the 911 GT2 RS. These adaptive sports seats come with thorax-stored airbags. US buyers don’t have to order sports bucket seats as they are standard in the US models of the 911 GT2 RS.
Buyers also have a range of options for the interiors of their 911 GT2 RS. For upholstery and trimming, they can pick between leather, the exclusive Alcantara material, or carbon trim. They can also purchase a six-point seat belt for the passenger’s side.
For their dashboard, they can add in the PCM Porsche Communication Management, which includes a module for navigation and a touchscreen for interacting with the system. Other options are the CDR-30 audio system, and the removal of the GT2 RS’ air conditioning system.
