Porsche 911 GT3 RS PDK Looks Tech-Fetishy when Seen from Below

We might have brought you tons of Porsche 911 GT3 RS PDK shades so far, but we haven't had the chance to show you just how eye-catching the belly of the beast is.

There are two ways to see the underbody of a supercar such as the one we have here and we're thrilled to have come across the one that involves the car enjoying some air time on a car lift.

We don't get to see the engine sitting after the rear axle too often these days, so this is nothing short of a double spectacle.

Nevertheless, four-liter flat-six aficionados will notice this setup isn't 100 percent stock. And that's because the Zuffenhausen machine has been gifted with a custom exhaust. And thanks to the rear-engined layout of the Neunelfer, we can see it all: the high-flow headers, as well as the WC-GT racing-grade exhaust. Those of you who consider such headers a work of art will take great joy in the second image above, which focused on this detail.

The custom goodies come from Southern California-based GMG Racing and we have to explain Global Motorsport Group is not just a tuner, but also a racing team who has a thing for fast pieces of Euro metal, not just Porsches.

If you've been following our GT3 RS stories, you know these guys offer quite a transformation for the 991 track tool. For one thing, their circuit setup, which isn't present here, involves 19-inch wheels shod in racing slicks, steel brakes, as well as a custom wheel alignment.

The resulting setup makes the machine get over its factory-induced understeer safety zone, so this isn't for anybody, not is it street-legal - here's what happens when a GT3 RS embraces such a change (er... no, the ludicrous wrap on the car in the example wasn't included in the tuner's plans).
