The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is not only the most powerful, but also the fastest 911 ever built. It has the performance level of a super sports car and has set a new record for road-approved sports cars on the 20.6-kilometre Nürburgring Nordschleife at six minutes, 47.3 seconds. And today, at its local premiere, the super 911 was previewed and also handed over to a few Malaysian customers.
“Porsche is celebrating its 70th anniversary with numerous activities around the world; uniting sports car enthusiasts, customers and employees, reminiscing cherished and exciting moments that have been shared with others around the world,” said Arnt Bayer, Chief Executive Officer of Sime Darby Auto Performance (above).
Sime Darby Auto Performance has announced that the retail base price for the new 911 GT2 RS starts from a mere RM2,900,000, which includes a four-year warranty. The stated price includes all applicable duties, except registration fee, road tax and insurance. Specifications and prices are subject to change without prior notice.
Now add the Optional Weissach package with 30kg weight saving (details in the summary below and the price jumps by RM138,000 (The price of a Honda Civic 1.5 Turbo here in Malaysia). I would also suggest owners add the Chrono Package while they're at it. Of course, you may think that this is a little bit more expensive than a Bijan handbag or two, but hey, its the fastest production Porsche currently available out there. The best thing is, about ten have already found owners in Malaysia with another full set of fingers in line. No shortage of what could be the most hard core 911 that money could buy today.
