Feature Flick: 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 Tests its Limits

We heard rumors of the 2011 911 GT3 RS 4.0 sweeping Nürburgring in 7:27, and we just showed you the limited-run performance car based on the 911 GT3 RS yesterday. With the largest, most powerful naturally-aspirated design to ever appear under the rear of a 911, the 4.0-liter version of Porsche’s flat-six engine produces 500 horsepower at a screaming 8250 rpm.

You can read about its flared fenders, massive rear wing, and gray racing stripes. You can get a better idea by looking at the pictures we showed you of its red and gray accents and white center-locking wheels. But none of that compares to seeing it in action and listening to the sweet sound it generates.

Unfortunately, we don’t have video of it on Nürburgring, but we do have video of it being put to the test at the Porsche development test track in Germany. The video has plenty of high-revving audio and drive-by footage, but is also very informative thanks to commentary from Porsche GT boss Andreas Preuninger.

With the high-performance model being limited to just 600 units worldwide, this video may be the closest you’ll get to experiencing it in person.
