The new 911 GT3 RS is designed uncompromisingly for maximum performance. The 525 PS road-legal high-performance sports car takes full advantage of technology and concepts from motorsport. In addition to the high-revving naturally aspirated engine with racing DNA and intelligent lightweight construction, it is the cooling and aerodynamic concept in particular that proves its direct kinship with its motorsport brethren. At 285 km/h the 911 GT3 RS achieves a total downforce of 860 kg - three times as much as a 911 GT3.

"Today the 911 GT3 RS delivered what it had already promised at first glance - absolute excellence on the racetrack," says Andreas Preuninger, Director GT cars. "Considering the far from ideal conditions, with a strong headwind on the long straight of the Döttinger Höhe and cool asphalt temperatures, we are satisfied with this time. The 911 GT3 RS is setting new standards for aerodynamics and the chassis. Never before has a road car embodied so much motorsport."

The 911 GT3 RS with the Weissach package was equipped with the optionally available Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tyres, sized 275/35 R 20 at the front and 335/30 R21 at the rear. It completed the previously standard shorter lap in 6:44.848 minutes.
