The car: the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
The time: seven minutes, 18 seconds on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
The power: 620 hp.
The weight: 1,370 kg.

The model makes its world debut at the Moscow Auto Show on August 25, 2010.

The future top GT model is the fastest and most powerful road-going sports car ever built by Porsche. Compared to the 911 GT2, the RS’s power is up by 90 hp and weight down by 70 kg giving it a class-leading power-to-weight ratio of 2.21 kg per horsepower. Even its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are down by five per cent.

The RS has a 3.6 litre six-cylinder gasoline boxer engine, boosted by two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry exclusive to Porsche and a six-speed manual gearbox.

It sports tyres measuring 325/30 ZR 19 that have been developed specially for the RS. Zero to 100 km is reached in 3.5 seconds, 0 to 200 km in just 9.8 seconds, and 0 to 300 km in 28.9 seconds. The top speed is 330 kmph.

Only 500 units of the 911 GT2 RS have been made available since May 12, 2010.
