Watch This Awesome Granny Rip Up Monza In a Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Motorsport / Comments

Respect your elders.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is one of the purest driving machines available for purchase today. It embodies everything Porsche holds dear and is usually the reserve of experienced professionals and keen amateurs. Porsche recently launched the Porsche 911 GT3 as the "closest connection to 911 race cars of any GT3", but the hardcore RS version was recently spotted testing with a massive rear wing and should be launched sometime next year. While fans patiently wait for the new RS to arrive, some are still enjoying the current model. A case in point is this granny, who is not afraid of pushing her 991 GT3 RS around Monza Circuit at full speed.

Monza is a famously fast circuit and has been the site of numerous fatal motorsports accidents, but that clearly hasn't stopped this dear old babushka from belting her porker around at stupidly high speeds. At the beginning of the video she can be seen donning all the necessary safety gear, so at least we know she's being safe. Once out on the track, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this Porsche was being piloted by a young professional. This awesome lady clips each apex perfectly, and blasts down the straight like there's no tomorrow. It must be said that her car does make heroes of even the most average drivers.

The Porsche 991 GT3 RS is a true work of art and has run an exceptional time of 6:54.4 min around the Nurburgring Nordschleife. Around Monza, the GT3 RS has seen times as low as 2:02.36 min. Under the hood of this machine is a 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six motor that develops 520 hp at 8,250 rpm and a peak torque figure of 347 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm. The GT3 RS isn't the most powerful around, but as this lady shows, numbers are exactly that: just numbers.
