Porsche has finally taken the covers off its 2010 911 GT3 RS, showing us a leaner and meaner beauty than its predecessor. It looks as good on the road as it does on paper, my friends. Power comes from a 3.8L unit that delivers more output, revving up to 8,500 rpm while producing a neck-snapping 450-hp.
Handling has been improved by Porsche’s new PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) suspension, a wider front and rear track and corresponding bodywork. The GT3 RS features a lithuim-ion battery, replacing its conventional lead-acid battery, helping reduce weight by 22 lbs.
egmCarTech tells us the 2010 911 GT3 RS goes on sale in the U.S. in early spring of 2010 with prices starting at $132,800.
