Under the hood, this beast is driven by a robust 4.0-liter naturally aspirated six-cylinder boxer engine, producing an awe-inspiring 525PS of power and 465Nm of torque. The engine's signature roar is unleashed through an impressive 9,000rpm redline. Paired with a 7-speed PDK transmission, the GT3 RS can sprint from 0 to 100km/h in a mere 3.2 seconds and boasts a commendable top speed of 296km/h.

One of the standout features contributing to its remarkable performance is the extensive use of carbon fiber in the construction of various components, including the doors, roof, front fenders, bonnet, and the imposing rear wing. This meticulous attention to weight reduction results in a feather-light curb weight of only 1,450kg, further enhancing the power-to-weight ratio.

Notably, it stands taller than the roof, a first for this model. Engineered to generate optimal downforce, the car can produce up to 409kg of downforce at 200km/h and an astonishing 860kg at 285km/h. The front grille and suspension components have also undergone redesigns to ensure every element contributes to the car's prowess on the track.

A notable addition to this production model is the drag reduction system (DRS), a pioneering feature. With the push of a button, the swan-neck-supported rear wing adjusts to reduce drag, enabling higher speeds on straightaways. It can also serve as an air brake, enhancing braking performance both on and off the track.
