We all know that the combination of the iconic Nurburgring and the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a match made in heaven, and the same applies to the latest model.
One would be excused for not knowing that the Nordschleife (North Loop) used to have a smaller sibling, the now-gone Sudschleife (South Loop).
Nurburgring Sudchleife was shorter, with a length of 4.4 miles (7.7km), but arguably even more terrifying than its bigger brother. The circuit was fast, but the room for error was almost non-existent, thanks to its narrow design and the trees sitting close to the tarmac.
The latest iteration of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is powered by a high-revving, naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat six that makes 512hp (520PS) and is paired to a seven-speed PDK transmission.
Porsche reckons it’ll do 0-62mph (100km/h) in 3.2 seconds and hit 193 mph (312 km/h) flat out. The suspension is rose-jointed and the springs are firmer than the previous version, while the front bonnet gets the same NACA brake-cooling ducts as the GT2 RS.
