It looks simply awesome this new RSR. Every little detail amplifies the car's presence. From the intricately-styled rear bumper vents to the fat-as-hell pumped guards front and rear, every aspect of the car is there as a high-priority.

The key revisions to the new car include a reshaped front end for more downforce at high speed, incorporating a steeper front lip extension off the bumper bar. The car's front wheels are also widened from 11in to 12in to provide even more face-distorting grip.

The rear end is given even more treatment in the aid of improving downforce. There's now a huge deck wing with added vents to push the back of the car hard into the ground under high-speed braking and cornering. The rear bumper bar also includes more air-extracting vents to help suck the rear of the car down to the ground.

Pushing the new RSR along is a revised 4.0-litre flat-six engine which now outputs 335kW of power and 450Nm of torque thanks to ECU and intake and exhaust enhancements.

It's the perfect race car for any endurance race. If you've got a spare $550,000 lying around, you can order yours directly from the factory in Zuffenhausen, Germany.

If you have just bought the 2010 model, don't worry, Porsche also offers the entire package as an update which you can adapt straight onto your 2010 model.
