The 2018 911 GT3 RS completed a lap at the track in less than 7 minutes. Porsche works driver, Keven Estre, took the 4.0-litre six cylinder, naturally aspirated engine Porsche 911 GT3 RS around the challenging racetrack in 6:56:4 minutes. However, the driver of this particular Porsche 911 GT3 RS will take a little longer than the record breaking attempt.
The driver of the Lizard Green Porsche GT3 RS seems to have lost control of the vehicle at high speed, as the vehicles spun out of control, resulting in massive damages to the performance car’s front and rear. The photographs of the damaged vehicle are limited and thus we cannot evaluate the extent of damage but it will most likely cost thousands of dollars in repairs. Then there are the charges that the driver has to bear in case of a crash at the legendary circuit.
There’s another vehicle in the photographs, a BMW 3 Series Coupe that has also suffered some damages.
Mechanically, Porsche has tuned the 4.0-litre six cylinder naturally aspirated engine on the 911 GT3 RS to produce 20 hp more as compared to the standard GT3, taking the power output to 520hp. The added power gives the 91 GT3 RS a marginally higher top speed, which is now rated 312 kmph. This engine is mated to a seven speed PDK transmission.
