The very first Porsche 911 GT3 RS built in U.S. specification has arrived at IMOLA Motorsports in Plymouth, Minnesota.

 

For this occasion, professional photographer Alex Bellus had the opportunity to take some nice shots with Porsche's latest naturally aspirated beast which in United States kicks off at a rather steep $175,900. Together with the $130,400 GT3, these two will soon remain the only NA models from the 911 range as the rest of the versions will embrace turbocharging once the 991.2 model will be out this fall.

 

The US-spec 911 GT3 RS is rated at 500 bhp and 338 lb-ft of torque coming from a flat-six 4.0-liter sending output to the wheels exclusively through a 7-speed PDK, enabling a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.1 seconds and a 193 mph (310 km/h) top speed. This is a pearl white example featuring yellow brake calipers and a black look for the aero bits and pieces while the 20-inch front & 21-inch rear wheels adopt a silver finish and are wrapped around in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

As a final note, Porsche has already achieved a 7:20 time with the 911 GT3 RS on the famed Nordschleife.
