2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR unveiled
It’s the new racing Porsche, and you can actually buy your own. We’d like one please
Posted: 10 Nov 2011
Time for a bit of racing eye-candy. Porsche has just given us pictures of this - it's called the 911 GT3 RSR and it's available to buy NOW.
Built to conform to A.C.O. "LM" GTE regulations, it lunges into the 2012 racing season with lots of shiny modifications, the most obvious of which being the body. Width has grown by 48 anabolic millimeters from the outgoing version, allowing Porsche to squeeze 12-inch-wide wheels in astern.
Engine wise, there's a 4.0-litre boxer six in the boot, which produces 454bhp through a sequential six-speed.
We'd like one. But we can't afford one. The pricetag's an astronomical £515,000. Looks like we - and probably you - will just have to stare at these pictures instead.
