The company claims the car to go zero to 100 kmph in just 3.2 sec, with the top speed of 312 kmph. To enhance the performance, Porsche has tweaked the car aerodynamically by adding more downforce and better handling.

Further, to reduce the weight of the GT3 RS to achieve its maximum speed, the company has used the carbon fibre for trunk lid and fenders, along with the roof made out of magnesium. And inside the cabin, it is equipped with the carbon fibre seats, lightweight window glass and lightweight door panels.

 

As far as dimensions are concerned, the sports car measures 4,557 mm in length, 1,297 mm in height, 1,880 in width and a wheelbase of 2,453mm.
