New 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS unveiling at the Canadian International Autoshow 2018, Porsche set a new lap record (6:47.3) for street legal sports cars on the 12.8 mile (20.6 kilometer) Nürburgring-Nordschleife with the 2018 911 GT2 RS.

At the heart of this high-performance sports car is a 700 horsepower (515 kW) biturbo flat engine. Weighing in at 1,470 kg with a full fuel tank, the lightweight two-seater accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (0-62mph) in 2.8 seconds. The rear-wheel drive Coupé has a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph), and with its near- motorsport drive technology, the new 911 GT2 RS trumps its 3.6-litre predecessor by 80 (59 kW) and achieves a torque of 750 Newton metres (an increase of 50 Nm).

The 911 GT2 RS will be available in Canada starting from $334,000. The optional Weissach package is priced at an additional $35,370.
