GT3 RS: the supreme 911
19 October 2006

Our Chris Harris was one of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS's critics. Until he drove it.

Now, after a few laps of the Nurburgring and a blast on the autobahn, he's wishing he'd ordered one.

The new GT3 RS, which goes on sale this week, costs a whopping £14,740 more than the standard GT3, but Harris reckons it's worth the cash.

"The speeds it registers at times beggar belief," said Harris. It's not just the car's orange paint that's loud, either: "It produces a noise so wonderful that anyone still carping on about air-cooled flat sixes will be stunned into permanent silence."

The GT3 RS goes on sale this week, if you've got a £94,280 hole burning in your pocket. But before you rush out to your local Porsche dealer, read our first drive here.
