Video: Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 Braking Record 300-0km/h

Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 Braking Record

Recently the Koenigsegg Agera R established the world record for braking from 300km/h to zero in just 6.66 seconds, but this record was beaten by the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0.

German magazine Sport Auto tested the limited edition Porsche at the high-speed test facility in Papenburg, northern Germany. Their testdriver Christian Gebhardt accelerated the Porsche to 332km/h and managed to stop the car within 6.5 seconds and without crashing.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is the final evolution of the 997 and the production is limited to 600 cars. The swansong of the 997 is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.0 liter engine with an output of 493 horsepower and a maximum torque of 460Nm. Thanks to this, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is able to accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds and makes it round the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in 7:27 minutes.

    Yup. The 0-300km/h time of the Agera R is 14.53 seconds while the GT3 RS takes 41 seconds! 41! That 2.8 times SLOWER!

    Thats all well and good but the Agera R takes less than half the time to do 0-300-0

    No matter how many world records Porsche beats, I’d still take the Agera R over it.

    Porsche may used to have a nice design when it was new a billion years ago, but hot damn it’s some ugly shit now.
