    Finishline Porsche 911 GT2 RS (2018)

    Ladies and gentleman, the moment youíve all been waiting for has arrived. This is the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS. After endless batches of spy shots, countless reports, and a preview earlier this month at E3, the Nine Eleven beast is finally here and it was well worth the tease. Without further ado, here are all the juicy specs.

    The 3.8-litre, flat-six engine has been sourced from the 911 Turbo S and blessed with a pair of larger turbochargers and an extra cooling system. It now pumps out a monstrous 690 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque in a car that tips the scales at 1,470 kilograms. That's including a full tank of gas.

    If you remember the old 911 GT2 RS from 2011, it was down on power by 79 hp and 37 lb-ft of torque compared to its successor unveiled today at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

    But wait, thereís more. Actually, less. An optional Weissach package shaves off almost 30 kilograms thanks to magnesium wheels and an abundance of carbon fibre components, such as the anti-roll bars, roof, and the end links on both front and rear axles. The largely exposed carbon fibre weave of the roof and trunk also contributes to the diet.

    Letís talk performance. Porsche says the new 911 GT2 RS will do 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in 2.8 seconds. Take it to the max and it will top out at 340 km/h.

    In charge of delivering all that power to the 21-inch rear wheels is a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic gearbox specially adapted for the new application. As for the glorious soundtrack, itís generated by a new titanium exhaust system lighter by about 6.8 kilograms than the one installed in the 911 Turbo.

    Stepping inside, itís a lovely combination of red Alcantara and numerous carbon fibre bits. Bucket seats with carbon fibre-reinforced backrests are part of the deal, as is the roll cage lurking behind them. Porsche will sell the 911 GT2 RS with an optional Chrono Package providing drivers with a new display to keep a close eye on lap times. Thereís even a matching watch tailor-made for the new range topper.

    And now letís get to the delicate matter of pricing. In Canada, the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS will cost $334,000, and is going to be in dealerships from early next year, while the Weissach package will retail for an extra $35,370. In the United States, it will cost $293,200, while in Germany, the model starts at Ä285,220. In the U.K. it kicks off from a cool £207,506.

    I still prefer the looks of the GT3 RS, just a bit too much going on with this one, but I will be happy to at least see one!

    Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love the madness of the GT2RS and if I ever won the lottery, would most likely have one in my 9 car garage. However, 1:45 onwards on this video explains why I would still buy a GT3 first!

    Bwaaawaawawwwaawaaaaaaaaa!!!!

    Definitely an amazing track car and highway driver. The slightest touch on the gas probably launches you past 80 km/h.

    Amazing! Although the P1 did it a few seconds quicker didn't it? Is it not considered a production car?

    The P1 LM was quicker at 6:43, but it’s not considered a production car, as they have the be mass produced to fall under that category. There were only five P1 LM’s made, plus one prototype.
