But it's not necessary to forget that 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is created specially for conquest of racing lines. Feature of model 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is the motor volume – 4,0 l. It's the biggest cursor among ever used in serial 911. Moreover, he is also the atmospheric engine with the highest specific power - 125 hp / l: maximum power of 368 kW (500 hp) engine develops at 8,250 rpm.

911 GT3 RS 4.0 shows really impressing dynamic characteristics. The most convincing indicator: it passes Northern hinge strain of a Nurnburgring for 7 minutes 27 seconds. Offered only with a six-step sports gear box 911 GT3 RS 4.0 dispersed from a place to 100 km/h only for 3,9 seconds and thanks to calculated for use on ring lines intervals of reduction ratios of a gear box reaches a point of 200 km/h less than for twelve seconds.
