Finally! Porsche has unveiled the 2018 911 GT2 RS. This is the most powerful car Porsche has ever made, producing about 700 horsepower from a twin turbo flat 6.
It has a 0-62 time of about 2.8 seconds, and a max speed of 211 mph. Porsche has specifically designed this car to be fitted perfectly for the track. In fact, Porsche describes it as precisely focused, brutally strong, and the perfected driving machine.
With the base price of about $293,200 US dollars, it’s quite costly. Though not surprising, Porsche has made every cent of that price tag worth it.
What Makes The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Such A Perfect Car?
The design goal with the 911 GT2 RS was to have both a high top speed, meaning a low drag coefficient, and race-optimised aerodynamics, meaning maximum downforce. This wasn’t exactly an easy task for the design team.
A couple months ago, Lamborghini set the Nurburgring lap record in a production car with a time of 6:52, beating the Porsche 918 Spyder. In previous weeks, McLaren has already beaten their record. In fact, the McLaren P1 LM completely shattered their record with a time of 6:43.2.
Yeah, you read that right. McLaren beat Lamborghini’s record by about 9 seconds.
The McLaren P1 LM is a track car modified to be street legal by the company Lanzante. The car was originally a P1 GTR, which is designed for the track and was not legally allowed on the street. Lanzante then took that car and modified it to become street car.
McLaren never officially timed the P1 GTR around the ‘Ring, and since Lanzante isn’t officially backed by McLaren, they took their modified LM and took it for a drive.

5. 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R
The 2017 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R has to be one of the best (if not the best) sounding cars ever produced. This is partly thanks to the flat-plane crank that vicious 526 horsepower American V8 uses.
The GT350R is equipped with a beautiful sounding supercharger and comes fitted with 2 Recaro bucket seats in the front that grip your body amazingly through the corners.
Though the Shelby GT350R comes without the back bucket seat, you can have it reinstalled from the factory for [...]
