The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is already a winner from the factory with a potent 3.6-litre churning out 470kW of power, enough to propel the Porsche from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.5 seconds and continue all the way to a top speed of 330km/h. Introduced in 2010, the GT2 RS was quickly snapped up in a limited production run of just 500 examples, despite the A$560,000 price tag.
German tuner Wimmer Racing Technology managed to get their hands on one of the rare 500 GT2 RS produced and decided to improve on their performance even further. To kick things off, Wimmer strapped two in-house designed turbochargers on to the six-cylinder boxer engine, optimised its intake system and upgraded the camshaft.
To cope with the extra boost from the turbos, the crankshaft, timing chains, cylinder heads, pistons and connecting rods were strengthened. Bigger fuel pumps replaced the standard items to make sure that the boosted 3.6 litre doesn’t starve on fuel. Also new are the exhaust manifold and a sports exhaust system with flap control.
The result is a monstrous 760kW (1020 hp) at 7,400 rpm and 1,108 Nm at 5,700 rpm! The figures? 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds, 200km/h in just 8.7 seconds and 300km/h in a blistering 15.5 seconds. The Wimmer Racing Porsche GT2 RS will continue on to a top speed of 389km/h.
Despite the incredible performance, Wimmer Racing unfortunately has no plans to put this GT2 RS up for sale.
