The most powerful car, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS has been officially revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The event served the platform for some of the most exotic cars unlike the Geneva or other conventional auto shows.
The ongoing car expo is more of a festival than a launch event that allowed automobile manufacturers to showcase their fastest and most potent cars of them all. The first edition of the new 911 car was shown once at the E3 gaming expo which was something automobile enthusiasts hardly expected. However, the brand’s association with the exclusive racing title allowed them to launch it in the Los Angeles gaming event.
Porsche has now found a spot for the 911 GT2 RS which is powered by a 3.8-liter biturbo flat-six engine.
