A mite disappointing that the GT3RS will make less than 40 extra hp, isn't it? I mean the go fast wing and fender vents are nice, but is that all?

such beautiful cars. Amazing the mpg numbers these cars are seeing too. I can barely break 18 mpg in my 997.

that carbon fiber on the side of the ferrari is a real buzz kill though.

Saw both on track at the same time last weekend. Nobody even cared there was a GT3 present. All eyes and ears were on Speciale.

Speciale is exactly as its name says. Special. The sound it makes - godly.
I believe that.

The GT3 RS models have never produced a huge power gain over the standard issue GT3 models to date and I don't expect that to change with the new GT3 RS. Perhaps a round 500 hp which would be a 25 hp bump seems likely?


996 GT3 (Mk1) 360hp
996 GT3 (Mk2) 381hp
996 GT3 RS 381hp
997 GT3 (Mk1) 415hp
997 GT3 RS(Mk1) 415hp
997 GT3 (Mk2) 435hp
997 GT3 RS (Mk2)450hp
997 GT3 RS 4.0 500hp
991 GT3 2013 475hp

Only the special edition 4.0 RS got a significant bump of 50 horsepower over the standard RS.

Calling the Speciale one of the most incredible Ferraris ever made is bold. Wish i could drive one

Side by side the gt3 just look like it worth 1/2 the price of the f car and rightly so.

lol at offtopic trying to justify gt3 softness and price. This is offtopic at it finest. What else is new.

If any of you are in need of a hitman, I would kill for that Speciale.

Neither one of these cars is soft, that's inane.

The speciale is more hardcore bc it's the Ferrari version of the gt3 rs. So the comparison is a little off in that way

That said, both are amazing, but I have more of a soft spot for the gt3.

I'd take an f430 scud over either. I'd rather a hurracan too
