    And to add the changes done to it. She's basically stock aside from the consumables and GT3R's suspension.

    - Stock engine (measured power at 496,9 hp)
    - Stock gearbox
    - Stock PS Cup 2 tyres (no ultra-hardcore version like AMG GT R or Corvette Z06!)
    - 1,8 bar warm tyre pressure on both axles
    - 20% more downforce than factory-RS (probably because of the different rear wing-setup)
    - Adjustable suspension from the GT3 R (with 12% softer setup)
    - Magnesium wheels
    - Road-legal racing pads
    - 3,5 Degrees camber on both axles
    - After a few 1:06.2 min laps it managed its best time of 1:05,8 min on brand new tyres.

    Its the handling and free revving engine that really stick out on this car. Is so precise when you place it along with being very stable. The sound is nowhere near as good as a Speciale if you want a comparison,and the tail less slippy. For out and out neck bending speed though the LT is easily king.


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Having a lighter tail and sounding better makes the Speciale funnier to drive right? And how about engine sound, was your previous V10 Huracan better than Speciale?

    No boxer or inline 6 cilinder engine could ever sound like a V8.

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    Guys you have some news about the next 991.2 RS? i have seen on PFF forum a rumor of a limited version of the RS not a regular model ( 4.2 - 525 hp...)

    You have "serious" information about it?

    Each car has its own characterises  - 911 feel with the GT3RS and mid-engined feel for the Speciale. The V10 in the Huracan of course sounds way better than the other two.

    Yes but based on the 991.2 Turbo S, not a GT model. Smiley

    The 458 Speciale screams, the Huracan trumpets. Big difference in sound but both sound divine. Smiley

    I realized that with cars like that, you don't need to be fast all the time to enjoy them. Big difference in real life driving experience and fun.

    actually, the main reason why i got out of ferrari was the trick the previous F dealer in austria played on me. the new dealership is very forthcoming though.


    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    So 488 Speciale next?  Or maybe a 812? 

    I agree...the dealer is always important for the whole "ownership" experience.

    My Audi dealer has been amazing so far, didn't expect that from him. Probably because my sales person is young and wants to make a career (and accidentally, while he works in Munich, he lives right next to my business Smiley) but he really is a pleasant person to deal with and he always tries hard. I feel welcomed.

    No - but to be honest I'm not so sure that they actually filmed that particular sequence on track when the Track Day was open.The Track Day started rather late that day. Fog they said Smiley .

    But I saw cameras around the track during the day - and helicopters too. There was a rumour that TG shot two episodes. One built around the Golf another one about Trackdays.

    Re: 991 GT3 RS

    See on Rennlist by Randr member:

    About the upcoming GT3 RS.2

    "Could be  But my dealership is very certain it will happen and they expect detail at the end of the year. Also I was shown two photos of what appears to be a black 991.2 GT3 RS is a wind tunnel. It appears to show a wider RS with double rear spoiler. The rear appeared to be CF but was dressed up in disruptive pattern (the CF was obvious around the tail lights). The air vents in the front fender appeared both a little narrower and a lot longer than those on the current version. The rear appeared wider e.g. RSR like and there also appeared to be vents over the rear fenders although it could have been shadow. It looked much more aggressive than the current RS, lower flatter and wider. Very very race focussed. The rear wing appeared very tall and wide.

    Also he said that there wasn't a single order for a manual GT3 at this particular dealership. Thats all I've got."
