New cars: July's hottest motors

Simply the most powerful Porsche ever built...

Porsche 911 GT2 RS

After the unfamilar, sensible air of the revised 4x4 Cayenne and the family-friendly, four-seat Panamera, Porsche’s designers have made a welcome return to their supercar roots with the 911 GT2 RS: the most powerful Porsche yet. The GT2 RS boasts 611bhp, has a 205mph top speed and races from 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds.

These impressive times are made possible by boosting Porsche’s familiar flat-six engine with a pair of turbochargers and some dramatic weight loss, with lightweight carbon fibre-reinforced plastic used for the rear spoiler and aluminium on the rear suspension arms. It’s been said that the GT2 RS is a healthy retort to Ferrari’s new and similarly speedy GTO, but at £164,107 it’s roughly half the price. Now that’s a bargain... isn’t it?

Price: £164,107  due September 2010
