As a big fan of the Bavarian supercar maker Porsche, it often surprises me when I find material such as this video of Red Bull Racing Formula 1 driver Mark Webber thrashing his Porsche 911 GT2 RS around the track. In the video, he explains what makes the latest incarnation of the GT2 Porsche badge so great and why a guy like Mark Webber who is used to the utmost in automotive performance (as with his Formula 1 race car) made the choice to purchase it.
The details of Porsche’s most power street-legal machine include a 3.6-liter, 6-cylinder boxer engine paired with twin turbochargers that produce a whopping 620hp! Power delivery is only to the rear wheels and through a 6-speed manual transmission that launches the 3,021lb supercar from 0-60mph in 3.5-seconds and tops out at 330km/h.
Enough of the talk, let’s get to the goods… Mr. Webber showing what a true Porsche is capable of.
