Porsche 911 GT2RS
The incomparable Porsche 911 GT2 RS could not be missing from this TOP 5 of the best sports cars, which with its 700 horsepower, is the most powerful 911 in history.
Rear-wheel drive, 3.8 Biturbo boxer engine, 1,470 kilos of weight, 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 340 km/h. Those are the figures of the most beastly Porsche 911 you have ever seen. And if you still resist knowing more about him, gasoline doesn't run through your veins.
The GT2 RS have always been the most powerful 911 in history, and as is often the case, that figure is increasing generation after generation. The new Porsche 911 GT2 RS has an engine derived from the one that equips the current 911 Turbo, a 3.8 Biturbo that has been squeezed to get 700 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque.
That means 80 more horsepower than the previous GT2 RS delivered with its 3.6 engine and 50 Nm more torque. They have resorted to larger turbochargers and the already announced system that sprays the intake air cooled with water.
The interior of the car matches the exterior. Red Alcantara, black leather and a lot of carbon as standard are the predominant elements in the cabin. The seats are bucket-type with a carbon fibre structure, and just behind it has the anti-roll bars that are also part of the standard equipment.
Its dazzling design is enticingly futuristic and functionally streamlined. Its austere interior focuses on driving, with seats fixed in position and most controls mounted on the steering wheel. Its mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged V-6 generates 647 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque sent to the wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission. The thrilling engine soundtrack is accompanied by neck-snapping acceleration and otherworldly handling characteristics. The GT is designed for the track, not the streets. Still, the six-figure Ford is surprisingly tame in everyday situations. While only a select few will own this automotive masterpiece, its existence should captivate enthusiasts.
Unlike the supercharged V-8 in the previous generation GT, the new car is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V-6 engine similar to that found in the Ford F-150 Raptor. Rated at 647 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque, the V-6 is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. In our tests, it launched the rear-wheel drive GT to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds and through the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds at 134 mph. Driving the GT is surprisingly easy, and the big car feels light and agile. Despite its performance potential, the ride isn't as rough as you might imagine; the suspension doesn't shake from minor bumps, but it will still transmit harsh impacts through the cabin.
Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-R
Above all, a sports car, with a clear conception of what a sports car should be like and designed to offer sensations, to be agile, and to be very competitive against sports cars as popular as the Porsche 911 or as effective due to its architecture as the Audi r8.
The key to the Mercedes-AMG GT is a 4.0-litre V8 Biturbo engine with different power levels, from 476 hp to 557 hp for the most radical. A machine with two turbos, mounted in the centre of the vee, forms the cylinder banks to shorten the distance of the ducts through which the exhaust gases recirculate and, therefore, their delay. A very sporty dry sump engine is also located slightly behind the front axle, in a practically central position. Architecture that facilitates excellent dynamic qualities.
It is a rear-wheel drive across the range. And it intermediates a transmission located on the same rear axle, in a trans-axle type layout, double clutch with seven gears.
The Mercedes-AMG GT R is the version that achieves the most incredible performance figures in the range. The 0 to 100 km / h is done in just 3.6 seconds. And its top speed is 318 km/h.
