Read up on the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, and find out what options will be available on the car.
Porsche has launched a new, online configurator for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The car will be sold with several available options when it is launched on the market beginning in September.
The car will be sold in four colors, including Guards Red, GT Silver Metallic, Black, and Carrara White (seen here). It rides standard on center locking 19-inch wheels custom designed for this model. Wheels can be sold in their standard metallic color, or blacked out. Other exterior options include a carbon front fender, a gradient-tint windscreen, headlamp cleaners, lightweight headlights, and clear glass tail light lenses.
All seats are sold in a mix of Alcantara and leather, and are available in three varieties: lightweight bucket, sports bucket, or adaptive sport seats. The interior can be fitted with leather, and does not have to be bi-color red and black. All black may also be selected. Other upgrades include dimming interior and exterior mirrors, rain sensing wipers, lightweight battery, six-point passenger-side seat belt, integrated garage door opener, upgraded audio equipment, and a carbon fiber trim.
Removing the automatic climate control or the Club sports package, in a bid to save weight, will also cost more money. The Club kit includes a rear roll cage, fire extinguisher, master battery switch, and six-point driver-side racing harness.
At 1,370 kg, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS weighs 70kg less than the GT2. The car features a 3.6-liter boxer engine capable of putting out 620 PS (462 kW), which pushed the car to a 7m 18s Norschleife track time. It sprints to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, on its way to a 330 km/h (205 mph) top speed.
The public will get their first up close look at the Porsche 911 GT2 RS in Moscow on August 25, just before European sales are set to begin. The car will be limited to just 500 units, and will feature a European base price of €199,500. In the U.S., the car will start at $245,000.
