Wildest Porsche 911 GT3 RS PDK Mixes WWII Shark Teeth Fighter Wrap, Track Tuning

In the history of limited edition supercars, it's probably safe to say that no vehicle has seen more custom work than Porsche's current 911 GT3 RS.

Heck, we lost count of how many units of the 2,000-cars-per-year GT3 RS PDK have been given an aftermarket treatment. However, while most owners stick to an eye-catching finish coming from Porsche Exclusive or turn to the wrap industry, we've recently come across the second case of a GT3 RS driver who went far below the surface.

Truth be said, the GT3 RS PDK in the images below is certainly the wildest we've seen to date. It all starts with the battlefield wrap of the rear-engined coupe. This mixes a camo theme with World War II shark teeth fighter details. Oh, and let's not forget the silver Acid Green lining.

Nevertheless, it's the list of track-savvy tech mods that have determined us to gift this Rennsport Neunelfer with the title above.

The connection to the asphalt is now established via 19-inch wheels (yep, one inch smaller than the standard rims), which are shod in Hoosier slicks. As for the suspension, this has been slightly lowered, while the bushings are now stiffer.

Just as important is the wheel alignment. Coming from California-based GMG Racing, whose current Facebook cover photo happens to mix a GT3, a GT3 RS and a Cayman GT4, the setup favors oversteer, doing away with the understeer safety net of the standard car.

In case the heavy tail of the 911 causes things to go wrong, the owner has prepared himself with an eight-point safety harness, as well as with a rollcage - in the US, Porsche can't deliver such a safety element, so driver looking for one have to turn to the aftermarket side of the industry.

Active safety is also important, which is why this Porscha comes with a custom exhaust setup including headers and a muffler delete. On a more serious note, the factory carbon-ceramic brakes have been swapped for steel units. The owners claims these deliver superior performance and, while that may be questionable, he also explains the steel units are less costly to replace, a key asset when you put a lot of track miles on your car. And maybe the standard brakes simply didn't fit inside the new wheels.

Those of you wondering how the owner can live with such a car on a daily basis must know that the man (you'll find him on Instagram) doesn't have to, as this GT3 RS is just one of the mechanical jewels in his garage.
