Can we do 800 km in a Porsche GT3 RS with a full tank?

In the United States, a journalist decided to leave Atlanta to reach the Sebring circuit with only one full tank of gas. This crazy bet requires a little preparation from the car …

Presented by Porsche in 2015 at the Geneva Motor Show before being slightly improved 3 years later, the GT3 RS is one of the most radical cars of the German manufacturer. It is powered by a 4 liter flat 6 cylinder. It develops 520 hp and allows the pistarde to reach 100 km / h in just 3.2 seconds. Because if this car was designed, it is above all to beat lap times on the circuit. Suffice to say that fuel economy is not really his thing.

Impossible on paper

Porsche announces an average consumption of around 13 l / 100 km. Suffice to say that we will have to do better than that to cover the 830 km from Atlanta to the Sebring circuit. Fortunately, the car benefits from a large 90 liter tank.

… But that is not enough.

Goodbye big fin

To put all the chances on his side, the journalist takes a radical approach ! It removes the huge rear spoiler, fills all the gaps with tape and even covers the wheels with cardboard to maximize air penetration. This 12-hour night trip will not have required no stopping at the pump ! What results in a beautiful story, but above all magnificent photos to discover here.
