Porsche GT3 RSR Gets Freaky In The Snow



The completely mental widebody lightly modified 911 you see above, formally called the 911 GT3 RSR, is set to go up against the GT2 class of Ferraris, Corvettes, and Aston Martins this racing season. I can’t imagine that anyone short of The Stig is actually brave enough to pilot this naturally-aspirated beast on a cold, snowy track. Or any track for that matter. But if you’re even brave enough to find out more about the RSR, hit the jump. 

Now down to the important bits:

  • 4.0L boxer-six (up from 3.8L last year)
  • Naturally aspirated. 
  • 450 horsepower at 7,800 rpm (down from 465hp at 8,000 rpm)
  • 317 torques at 7,250 rpm (same as Audi RS4)
  • RWD
  • Rear-engine (duh, it’s a 911)
  • Rear wing can now be adjusted
  • A/C now optional
  • Hood louvres help radiator cooling. 

By now it should be clear that you would have to be absolutely off your rocker to drive the RSR in the snow. Sure makes you appreciate the pictures Porsche provides. 

This ass-engined madness can be yours for a one-time payment of CDN$622,000, plus taxes of course. If you would like to get that on a payment plan, you’re looking at about $10,367/month for 60 months, plus taxes and interest. Where do I sign?
