Equipped with MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tyres, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS conquered the 20.8-kilometre northern loop of the famous German racetrack Nürburgring 10.6 seconds faster than the current 911 GT3, in just 6:49.328 minutes.
This is the second 911 GT3 RS generation that can be optionally fitted with the ultra-high performance tyre MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 R. The new design features a perfectly balanced harmony between tyre and vehicle. The tyre pairs particularly well with the active aerodynamics of the vehicle. The new and wider dimensions also ensure an outstanding grip. Thus, the newly developed rubber compound of the ultra-high performance tyre combines power and durability – even under extreme conditions. At the same time, the tyre's newly developed structure ensures greater stability and speed when cornering. This is how Michelin optimizes tyre performance for this exceptional vehicle.
The following dimensions were used for the lap time:
Front: 275/35ZR20 (102Y) XL MICHELIN PILOT SPORT CUP 2 R CONNECT N0
Rear: 335/30ZR21 (109Y) XL MICHELIN PILOT SPORT CUP 2 R CONNECT N0
