Hot on the heels of the recent introduction of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) carries on the momentum with the Porsche Open Track Day at the Sepang International Circuit. The unique event was not just a usual track day for Porsche owners, but it is also the ultimate vehicle delivery experience of a lifetime for the new owners of the road-approved high-performance sports car.
The new 911 GT3 RS produces 383 kW (520 hp) from a six-cylinder, four-litre, naturally-aspirated boxer engine with a rev limit of 9,000 rpm. Similar to other Porsche GT models, the chassis comes directly from the world of motorsport with an upgraded rear-axle steering system, all of which have been geared towards uncompromising precision. These upgrades add up to an approximate 24-second improvement in Nürburgring lap time. The new 911 GT3 RS accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in an astounding 3.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 312 km/h (194 mph).
With the support of certified technical support, the Porsche Open Track Day offers owners of the two-door sports car a day of dynamic driving at the Sepang International Circuit in their very own sports cars. Owners were able to improve and sharpen their driving skills under the guidance of certified Porsche instructors and race drivers. They were also treated to a breathtaking view of the sports car line-up at the pit lane, in the comfort of an air-conditioned hospitality area at the pit area complete with a gourmet spread.
