Porsche 911 GT3 RS Drag Races Mercedes-AMG GT R

Porsche works race driver Kévin Estre piloted the GT3 RS to its impressive new lap time. Now, we have official conformation as well as the video to prove it.

Driven by French endurance driver Kévin Estre, his time was 24 seconds faster than the previous version of the GT3 RS - with Porsche test driver Lars Kern, who also drove the auto during the session, only a tenth slower than Estre.

It also marks a happy Nurburgring trifecta for the German brand, with the the GT3 RS the third Porsche to break the seven-minute barrier at the infamous race track. "In this regard there is no harder test for our ideas than the Nordschleife", stated Porsche's VP of motorsport and GT cars, Frank Steffen Walliser.

"This lap was a sensational experience for me", he said.

"No other Porsche model gets as close to racing as the new GT3 RS".

North Korea Is Ready To Denuclearize, Says South's President Moon
President Moon Jae In portrayed the proposal as a concession on the eve of talks involving the two Koreas and the United States . But Trump warned he would call it off if he did not think it would produce results. "And I appreciate that very much", he said.

The GT3 RS borrows its aero and lightweighting technologies from the standard GT3 while also tacking on a magnesium roof and carbon-fiber front lid and fenders. "Up to 9,000 revs per minute from a six-cylinder engine just feels fantastic, and the sound is a dream".

"All four lap times of both drivers were below seven minutes and only tenths of a second apart".

Estre says the GT3 RS's strengths lie in braking performance and mid-corner speed, with the road-legal Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R rubber helping elevate the speed, while keeping everything pointing the right way up.

The rear-wheel drive track monster is powered by a naturally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine that produces a staggering 520hp and 346 lb-ft of torque. "And what especially delights me is how much fun Lars and Kévin had when driving that vehicle".

Porsche debuted the 911 GT3 RS, its most powerful naturally aspirated vehicle ever, at the Geneva auto show in March.
