Porsche 911 GT3 RS Revealed
If you’re the kind of person who loves a bargain and smugly condemns your mate who’s just spent a bomb on a Range Rover whilst you drive the Dacia Logan, which of course you maintain is practically the same car….. Then this article isn’t for you.
For this is a car that laughs in the face of practicality, in fact it builds itself on being as unnecessary as possible, with the law acting as this cars boundary. Basically the 911 GT3 RS was built so you use it everyday for all your usual stuff, i.e picking kids up from school, laughing at joggers, driving to work and showing off, these are all things that come under the necessary category. However you can only truly show off when you have boxes ticked in the unnecessary category. And this is where the 911 GT3 RS comes into it’s own. If you’re the type of person to think a Porsche 911 should be practical, your the type of person who might expect to Buy Your Groceries at Mcdonalds without getting fat.
This is a car that is brimming with the maximum degree of motorsport technology, so much so that if they were to add any more tech to this car, it would make it ILLEGAL. This is for people who like to live on the edge, people who prefer barely legal, and order food that’s too spicy to enjoy, but it’s worth it to prove a point. This is a car for people who think the Ford C-Max is a 3D cinema for kids.
Here are the facts; it contains a 4.0-litre six-cylinder engine with 500 hp (368 kW) of power and 460 Newton metre of torque, combined with a specially developed PDK transmission! Not sure what any of that means? Neither are we but one things for sure, it will impress the broads. All I know is that this car can do 0-62mph in 3.3 seconds, furthermore it can do 124 mph in 10.9 seconds, meaning on a straight stretch of road with no cars on it, you could brake the law and get yourself banned from driving in under 10 seconds. 70mph speed limit? Speak for yourself.
Sure your Citroen C3 might have better fuel economy but I don’t go to the gym to do cardio, and I sure as hell don’t buy a car to save the planet. You may however be interested to know that I actually drive a Toyota Yaris…. Don’t judge me.
