Cor. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is (spoiler alert) such a wonderful thing. Every time Porsche releases a GT-model 911, it's terrific, and we wonder how they make it better. And then they do. Subscribe now: http://smarturl.it/autocar
This time, that comes with a power upgrade to the 911 GT3's 4.0-litre engine - which is basically a Cup race car engine - taking it to 513bhp (520 metric hp). It revs to 9000rpm - that's worth hearing, by the way.
It drives the rear wheels through a seven-speed PDK gearbox, which shifts more quickly and cleanly than ever, and drives through one of the funkiest chassis in the business. The suspension is rose-jointed, there are active engine mounts, a rear-steer system, wheels and tyres from the absurd GT2 RS and the brilliance and genius or Porsche's engineers to make all of this into a massively engaging, brilliant handling, cohesive entirety.
Is it better than other £140,000 coupes? Is it better to drive than the Aston Martin Vantage, Audi R8, McLaren 570S? On a track, the GT3 RS is better than anything this side of a Caterham 7 or Radical.
