CAR GARAGE | Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 (2012) |  The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 's outstanding driving dynamics are the fruit of meticulously coordinated details. At 2.72 kg / hp, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 's power-to-weight ratio thereby dips below the magical threshold of three kilograms per hp. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 's motor racing is bent Immediately recognizable from its aerodynamic design. The 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is the first Porsche production sports car to feature so-called flics, or water deflection vanes, mounted on the side of the front apron. The large fixed rear wing is a traditional feature of the 911 GT3 RS models and provides down force on the rear axle.

As a result, at top speed, aerodynamic forces exert an additional 190 kilograms pushing the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 onto the road. As a result, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 offers yet higher acceleration potential for even higher cornering speed on racing circuits. The central, slightly protruding cooling water intake in GT silver metallic is particularly striking. With the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 the size of the water inlets and vehicle's width are further emphasized by a sickle-shaped decorative strip in GT silver metallic around the side air inlets and front lights.

To enhance performance, gears one to five have an approximately eleven percent lower gear ratio relative to the 911 GT3. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 's engine is complemented by an asymmetric effect of mechanical rear differential lock. As a sports car That is uncompromisingly designed with driving dynamics in mind, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 features a chassis specifically tuned for performance. To enhance performance, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 features an especially light and spottily precise chassis.

The disc brake on the front axle diameter is 380 millimeters and 350 millimeters on the rear axle. To Ensure braking power under high stresses, in Addition to intensive brake ventilation on the front axle the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 also features brake ventilation on the rear axle. This involves special water brake ducts fitted laterally on the under body directing cooling water to the rear brake system. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 's ready-for-road weight is 1.360 kilograms Both the rear window and rear side windows are made of lightweight polycarbonate.
