Here are the first photos with the limited edition Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 which leaked online in the last couple of days. This even more extreme version of the GT3 RS will come with a bigger engine (4.0-litre instead of 3.8) so naturally power will also be increased. Various sources say the output is most likely going to reach 500 horsepower, which will be channeled to the rear, strictly via a manual transmission.
How will the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 stand out from the rest of the range? (besides the obvious improved performance). Well these photos make it very clear : the exterior is featuring a special white livery and matching white alloys, a roll bar in the same colour plus a silver strip with red borders, stretching from one end to the other.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 will also benefit from various aerodynamic improvements, its chassis will be borrowed from the GT3 RS, and at the interior the two colours being used are red and black. The center console is missing ‘unecessary’ features like an audio system, and air conditioning is another ‘luxury’ that will not be found on this extreme performance oriented model.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 price will hover around the 180,000 Euro mark which is around 264,000 USD based on today’s exchange rates. Production will be limited to 500 exemplars.
