Porsche 911 GT2 RS Runs Hard at Spa-Francorchamps Circuit
Most-powerful 911 ever, GT2 RS, takes on one of motor racing’s most historic circuits.
The above video comes via YouTube channel, RSRNurburg, and the GT2 RS is being driven by its owner, Pal Pettersen, a Norway-based racing enthusiast.
As you may know, the 991 GT2 RS is equipped with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine that makes 700 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. The drive is directed to the rear-wheels by a 7-speed PDK automatic gearbox. Porsche claims a 0-60 miles per hour time of 2.7 seconds, and a top-speed of 211 mph.
As far as its track capabilities are concerned, when Porsche first took the GT2 RS to the famed Nurburgring race-track, in 2017, it broke the Lamborghini Huracan Performante’s record for road-legal cars with a breathtaking run of 6 minutes 47.3 seconds.
However, that time was soon eclipsed by the Aventador SVJ. The latter went around the ‘Ring in 6 minutes 44.9 seconds. Yet, that wasn’t the end of the Porsche-Lamborghini Nurburgring rivalry. Shortly after Aventador SVJ’s run, Porsche went to “The Green Hell” with a Manthey-Racing-tuned GT2 RS and the modified track weapon beat the Lamborghini’s time by four seconds.
Needless to say, although we are living in the golden age of performance cars, sports cars such as the current-generation GT2 RS don’t come very often. And when they do, the demand far outstrips the supply. Perhaps, this could also explain why a car enthusiast from Florida is offering a portion of his waterfront property in exchange for a GT2 RS.
