Porsche and Microsoft unveil the new 991 GT2 RS at the Forza Motorsport 7 launch
Along with that, some more details about the GT2 RS went live, and some of the main specs are:
- It will share the same engine from the Turbo S, but with some tune ups bringing it to 700hp
- Rear-wheel drive drivetrain as usual, but with rear-wheel steering
- Porsche Torque Vectoring
- Variable rear locking differential
With that much power, it’s hinted to do 0-100kph in just a bit over 2.5 seconds.
Visually though from what we were able to see on the E3 stand and in the game, it’s sharing a lot of parts from the GT3 RS, but with a more aggressive wing, carbon fiber bonnet and the new front bumper huge vents that can swallow an airborne whale.
This is not the first time a manufacturer unveils a car alongside a videogame, where Nissan and Gran Turismo have also collaborated, unveiling the Nissan GT-R R35 for the first time digitally and in real life at the same time, 10 years ago.
