THURSDAY'S SHOWROOM CLASSIC
2007 PORSCHE 911 (997) GT3 RS
RHD - 22,500 miles
The 2006-2009 Porsche 997 GT3 RS (Generation I) was powered by a rev-happy, 3.6-liter engine, developing 305 kW (415hp) at 7,600 rpm. Maximum engine speed was increased to 8,400 rpm and thanks to its close-ratio 6-speed manual gearbox with single-mass flywheel and lower vehicle weight than the GT3, the engine spun up even faster and propelled the GT3 RS from standstill to 62 mph (100 kph) in 4.2 seconds. A speed of 124mph could be reached in 13.3 seconds and top speed was 193 mph (310 kmh).
At just 1375kgs, weight saving was achieved by the use of an adjustable carbon fibre rear wing, a plastic engine cover, and a lightweight, Perspex rear window. The RS bodyshell is also 44 mm wider at the rear, which improved directional stability and cornering grip. In addition to all the new technology featured, the paint scheme and body panels were all designed specially for the RS and the majority were finished in Orange or Viper Green, mixed specially for this limited production model of 1,909 units worldwide.
