Lava Orange Porsche 911 GT3 RS Gets Lava Orange Rims, Is It Too Much?

With Monaco being one the international supercar capitals, any high-octane machine, even one as sharp as the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, risks losing a bit of its shine in dense exotic vehicle population of the state.

Well, you can scrap all that when it comes to the GT3 RS in the image above, with the difference being made by a detail as little as the hue of the rims.

You don't need to be a Zuffenhausen aficionado to notice this Neunelfer, which happens to have spread the Lava Orange color of its body to its wheels.

Sure, this was the supercar's launch color, but you'll have to turn to the most complex Porsche Exclusive tactics to use that shade on the rollers.

While the Lava Orange bonus does make this track-savvy Porscha stand out, both on the streets of Monaco and in a hypothetical crowd of GT3 RS units, it also makes the non-colored taillights, an option we've already become accustomed too, seem like the norm.

In a less than surprising move, this pair of pics, which comes from supercar spotter Seb Delanney, has caused quite a stir. While many see the bold eye candy as fitting the already eccentric nature of this 911 variations, others think those rims should get the tar and feather treatment.

We're not here to take sides, but we do have something to say that might come to defend the mind who came up with this color combo, not that such a move would be necessary.

We need to look no further than the 911 GT3 RS from a generation ago, namely the 3.8-liter model that came before the 997 GT3 RS 4.0, to notice how Porsche itself likes to play with similar rims - admittedly, the rims we're talking about were Red, not Orange.

We're not fretting, though, and that's because, in the end, any dispute can be solved on the track. That's where the GT3 RS happens to belong and we must keep in mind that those wheels, and thus the whole car, would look differently while spinning at full speed, right?
