New 911 GT3 RS? It’s going to be rubbish, right? Well, if you’re hoping to transport six people to the seaside or follow a mountain goat up an Alp, then yes, the GT3 RS is genuinely rubbish. But if you care about driving, however… Come on, out with it …it’s properly full on. Senior. Major league stuff. But then you look at what’s been done to the GT3 RS and it’s hardly surprising. It has 80 per cent of the downforce of a GT3 Cup racing car, carbon body panels, placky windows, a magnesium roof (just to save 1.1kg high up on the car). The GT3 RS has the wheels and tyres from the 918 Spyder, the same seats, steering wheel and brakes, too. It’s adopted the Turbo body which yields two major benefits - wider tracks to aid grip and side air intakes which cause less turbulence and have more ram-air effect into the engine.
