In an exciting turn of events, I have been lusting after the new GT3RS, pictures of which were released a few weeks back. Considering my GT3 is due to to arrive Tuesday 29th September, I will make it into a shortlist of weirdos who has 2 deposits down for 2 different cars at the same dealer.
Sanity is still fighting with emotion, but for the first time in many years, the RS appears to inherit all the characteristics of the GT3 but with a key number of added wow’s.
Not an exclusive list, but:
Short ratio, short shift gearbox
Wider front track
RS specific PASM suspension
Dynamic engine mounts as standard
As for looks, opinions are divided. At first I was bewildered by the choices afforded, but time has been sympathetic and now I want one pretty badly.
I’ve rang pretty much every dealer in the country and the order books are already filled. My dealer says he can get me one – but I’m looking at 5th place in the queue there. I guess it serves me right for not acting quickly when I had the chance!!
