Some people just have all the luck don’t they? Walter Röhrl is Porsche‘s senior test driver and has quite a resume in his racing career. He’s an accomplished rally driver and road racer with victories for a fine collection of manufacturers including Fiat, Opel, Audi, Porsche, Ford and BMW. So what do you get when you pair a Porsche 911 GT2 RS with Röhrl behind the wheel and a video camera? So much jealousy from every one of us stuck behind a computer all day.
The 3.6L twin-turbocharged, quarter of a million dollar supercar puts out 630-hp of pure joy and at the very least we get to experience it vicariously through a video. Check out the video of Röhrl taking the GT2 RS around Luk Driving Center and enjoy the awesome Video Vbox display spouting off all sorts of data including throttle, brake, Gs, RPM and speed. One thing we do want to note is that it’s clear Röhrl is taking it very easy with the car – probably the reason for them to not be sporting any helmets.
