New photos and video of the 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, the road-legal racing car |

While Porsche can be blamed for many things, including following almost the exact design line for about 20 years or so, you can’t argue that it makes some of the most unbelievable cars which you can still drive everyday, but also take them to the track.

Such is the case with the top-of-the-range 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, which promises to be the definitive road-lega racing car from the German automaker. Powered by an upgraded naturally-aspirated 3.8 liter engine, which delivers 450 HP, it overtakes the GT3 as the definitive enthusiast’s choice from the 911 lineup.

An specially customized six-speed manual gearbox is standard with this model, which was optimized for a shorter gearshift travel, in order to gain even the slightest millisecond. Faster gear ratios are also fitted to this gearbox, thus bringing out all of the power of the car.

An interesting part of this new 911 GT3 RS will be the dynamic engine mounts, which will improve the handling of the model. They change their stiffness depending on the conditions, thus not intruding on everyday drives around the city. Also, if you really want to take weight trimming to the extreme, you can opt to outfit the car with a 10 kg slimmer lithium-ion battery, instead of the normal lead-acid one.

To further highlight the racing potential of this car, the GT3 RS will have a custom PASM suspension, a wider front and rear tracks, as well as a wide body. The low ride height and big carbon fiber rear wing will also make quite an impression on racing fans, alongside the titanium exhaust system.

Look forward to the 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS reaching US shores in early spring 2010, for about $132,800. Until then, enjoy this video of this fantastic car.
