The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 (997) is a limited edition of the 911 GT3 RS, with 600 units manufactured.
As its name suggests, the car utilises a 4.0L flat-six engine with an unaltered crankshaft from the GT3 RSR, which produces 500bhp at 8,250rpm. The power output of the engine is the highest among any naturally aspirated engine for the road models of the Porsche 997.
Need for Speed: The Run
The stock variant of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is featured as a Tier 4 car in Need for Speed: The Run. It also appears as the Tier 5 "Falken Signature Edition" and as the Tier 5 "Lizard Signature Edition". Both of these cars use liveries which are similar to that seen on several teams in the ALMS.
The Tier 4 variant is unlocked by default in the game. The "Falken Signature Edition" can be obtained in the Signature Booster Pack downloadable content. The "Lizard Signature Edition" may be acquired as a bonus wheel reward only.
The GT3 RS 4.0 is a quick Tier 4 car with great handling capabilities, despite having a Normal handling rating. It can keep up with the fastest cars within its range such as the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni.
Both Tier 5 variants of the GT3 RS 4.0 are featured with the same traits. Their engines produce 641bhp at 8,250 rpm and allows them to reach a 214 mph (344 km/h) top speed and does 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds. They have an Easy handling rating and are competitive cars for any race type.
Need for Speed: World
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 was made available in Need for Speed: World on September 7th, 2012 as an A class vehicle.
The GT3 RS 4.0 has a grippy handling useful for high-speed cornering. It turns well at low speeds and has a slower responsiveness when driven at high speeds because of understeer. In comparison to the 3.8 litre version, the 4.0 has a less direct steering but more traction. It can keep up with most cars and has a strong nitrous boost. Top speed is 212 mph (341 km/h).
Players may find the GT3 RS 4.0 to be an effective Class S car for multiplayer matches. However, it hardly stands out compared to most lower priced Class A Porsches such as the 997 GT2 and similarly priced cars like the Pagani Zonda Cinque.
