2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0

Available entirely with a six-speed manual transmission, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 sprints from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.8 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.9 s), and with its gearing designed for the race circuit it reaches the 124 mph (200 km/h) mark on the race track in under 12 seconds.

Equipped as typical with lightweight components such as light but strong carbon fiber sport bucket seats, carbon fiber front fenders and luggage compartment lid, and weight-optimized carpets, the two-seater’s ready-for-action weight is just 2,998 lbs (1,360 kg) with a full fuel tank. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0’s power-to-weight ratio is 5.99 lbs/hp (368 hp/tonne).

With a manufacturer’s recommended retail price starting at $185,000 (excluding destination), the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 goes on sale in the United States in late 2011.
