Built to commemorate its successful 24 Hours of Le Mans campaign, Roock's 997 Turbo RST 600 LM puts out 602 horsepower and has a top speed of 212 mph.
In celebration of its success at the 24 Hours of LeMans, German Porsche tuner Roock AutoSport has rewarded enthusiasts with its latest performance-modified 997 Turbo, the Roock RST 600 LM. Heavily retuned, this extremely pugnacious Porsche features modified turbochargers, remapped fuel and engine management systems and a titanium exhaust. A carbon clutch borrowed from Roock’s racing cars is required to handle the 602 horsepower and 611 pound-feet of torque that the RST 600 LM produces. A 0-60 time of 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 212 mph are reported.
Roock says the stunningly powerful RST 600 LM is docile enough to be used as a daily driver, thanks in part to a retuned adjustable suspension and massive 380mm crossdrilled and vented brake rotors with eight-piston calipers. The four-pad design is new, and improves brake response while maintaining a high degree of controllability.
It wouldn’t be a properly modified 997 without enhanced ground effects, of course. The RST 600 LM stands out with a Roock-designed front splitter, rear diffuser and a rear spoiler borrowed from Roock’s Le Mans parts bin. Ultra-light racing wheels with Roock trademark carbon center caps are also fitted. The RST 600 LM features a pushbutton starter. The interior can be modified with carbon-fiber trim, and the console has additional oil and temperature gauges. Roock-exclusive four-point harness seats are comfortable enough for daily driving, thanks to adjustable side supports, while remaining track-legal.
Roock is the only German Porsche tuner with a headquarters in the United States. It currently offers modification for just about everything in the Porsche family, and will likely be one of the first out the gate with a modified Panamera as well.
