Its fundamental attractions lie in its ability to put 415 horsepower to the road in a way that makes that quoted output sound like an understatement, and in the sound the engine makes at its 8400-rpm redline, where the 3.6-liter flat-six wails a song reminiscent of a zillion laps at Le Mans, Spa, the Nurburgring, and Daytona.The tradition is continued with the 2007 911 GT3 RS. In common with its predecessors, it provides a basic and pre-approval model for use in a range of racing series.
One characteristic of the 07 "RS" is the body, which is 44 mm wider at the rear (a legacy from the Carrera 4 models) by comparison with the 911 GT3. The muscular-looking rear end conceals a wider track that not only improves directional stability but also increases the transverse acceleration potential of this two-seater coupe.
Despite its specialized body, the "RS" is 20 kg lighter than the GT3, weighing in at just 1375 kg (3031 lbs). This weight-saving was achieved by the use, amongst other solutions, of an adjustable carbon fiber wing, the use of a plastic rear lid and a lightweight plastic rear window. The corresponding weight-saving is 4.5 kg/kW.
With a view to the registration regulations for the important Gran Tourismo championships as future fields of application, the road version of the GT3 RS has resorted to technical solutions that will also feature in the racing version. These solutions will include the entire wheel carrier and split wishbones on the rear axle, in addition to the carbon fiber components of the body.
And the interior lives up to the vehicle's sporting aspirations: 2 lightweight bucket seats made of carbon fiber composite materials come as standard and in the club sports package. There is a bolted roll cage and the pre-wiring for the battery main switch. A six-point seatbelt for the driver and a fire extinguisher are also provided. Internal trims are black, with the roof lining, steering wheel and gear stick trimmed in high-quality Alcantara leather.
