Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0: A Race Car for the Road

by Sales Team on May 13, 2011

It is rare, in this day and age, to be able to predict which vehicle will, overtime, be considered a classic; but the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 that was announced last week, will be, without a doubt, one of those rarities. With only 600 vehicles available worldwide, this street-legal interpretation of Porsche’s successful serial racetrack winner, the 911 GT3, will be available for sale in Canada in late 2011 at a sticker price of $211,100.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 will be powered by the biggest 911 engine ever, a motorsport-inspired 4.0-litre engine that has the highest specific output of 125 hp/litre from a naturally-aspirated Porsche flat-six. The crankshaft is the exact one from the 911 GT3 RSR racing car and the forged piston connecting rods are fashioned from titanium which altogether help this powerhouse reach its maximum power of 500 hp at 8,250 rpm.

Boasting impressive performance numbers, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is capable of lapping Nurburgring-Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 27 seconds. Available exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission, it sprints to 100 km/h from a standing start in 3.9 seconds, with its gearing designed for the racing circuit, taking it to the 200 km/h mark in under 12 seconds.

The outstanding driving dynamics of the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 are the result of a number of meticulously coordinated details and calculations. It is equipped with the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system (an electronic adjustment system for each of the four wheels that monitors and controls suspension damping independently in real time) that has been specifically calibrated while the rear axle has extra ball-joints for greater adjustability.

Just as with its racing counterpart, minimizing weight in the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 has been a key factor to performance. As standard, it comes equipped with lightweight components such as lightweight carbon-fibre sports buckets seats, front fenders, and luggage compartment lid, as well as plastic rear windows and weight-optimized carpets. Even with a full tank of gas, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 weighs merely 1,360 kg. At 2.72 kg/hp, its power-to-weight ratio dips below the magical threshold of 3 kg/hp.

Available in standard Carrera White, the limited edition 911 GT3 RS 4.0 will definitely stand out in a crowd; its distinctive lateral front air deflection vanes, called “flics” that appear for the first time on a production vehicle, and a big, steeply-inclined rear wing both work together to bring the vehicle into aerodynamic equilibrium. As a result, at top speed, aerodynamic forces exert an additional 190 kg, pushing the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 onto the road.

Market launch for the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 begins in Germany in July 2011. Follow us on Twitter or join our Facebook community to keep in the loop for the latest updates.
