Walter Röhrl driving the Porsche 911 GT2 RS – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Fact: We would run many a gauntlet in order to get some on-track seat time behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Hell, we'd be overjoyed just to get a secondhand, passenger seat experience of what this monstrous 911 is capable of. And if we had our choice of drivers, Walter Röhrl, Porsche's senior test driver and decorated racer, would be our first pick.

Until that day comes, however, we'll just sit back and watch this video of Porsche's tame racing driver piloting the 630-horsepower GT2 RS around Luk Driving Center. Buckle up and watch this in-car video for yourself, after the jump.

      Oh yes, it's my colleague Zeljko Purgar in the car with Walter. Lucky son of a gun. :-) I must say that there were no attempt to post some "crazy" time. They just enjoyed driving. :-)
      Al.O.

      That looked like nice fun!
      • 4 Years Ago
      I expected more I guess. I've seen Walter do more hoonage than that.

      Maybe being too smooth on the 'Mickey Mouse' track?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah that was definitely restrained. If it was anyone but the guy who has always been paid to do it, it would have been more exciting to watch.

      I wonder if the actual red-line of the 911 GT2 RS is around 7000 RPM since I never saw him go over that. He always shifted at around 6750 RPM.

        well, let's take a look at the facts:

        no independent source was any quicker than 7:38 (whoch was by far the quickest time). so stop making yourself look like a moron by quoting nissan propaganda

      I could have done that, and without the effeminate German accent.
        • 4 Years Ago
        There's a lot of adjectives that one could use to describe Walter Röhrl.

        Effeminate is not one of them.

      nice "top gear" easy track ...let see it on the ring and let us show that you need 150hp to beat the GTR

      That was fantastic. I'd love to see him do the same kind of video driving the Nürburgring Nordschleife!

      Does he almost throw up a little in his mouth at 4:27?
