Available for auction is a painting by Greg Stirling, featuring the "Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991.2). This 54" x 34" painting is made from acrylic media on canvas.
The GT3 RS gets 520 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque from the same flat-six engine in the GT3 (the redline set at 9000 rpm, making it the highest-revving GT3 RS ever). The whole car is heavily based on the GT3 with lots of shared stuff. But it’s the engine that sets the RS apart thanks to an extra 20 horsepower, as well as the fact that you can’t get it with a manual transmission. The chassis setup is also different, so the RS is quicker on the race track. The GT3 RS is 0.1 seconds quicker than the old GT3 RS to 60 mph, which now happens in just three seconds. The car also gets front brake cooling and new ball joints inspired by the GT2 RS, and a tweaked rear-steering system. If you think of the GT3 RS as a GT3 with more downforce, more power, and more grip then you are pretty close to the money. On April 18th, 2018 the 991.2 GT3 RS set a lap time of 6:56.4 around the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife race track. It is the third Porsche production car to break the 7-minute barrier around the track, the first being the 918 Spyder.
Greg Stirling started painting in 1980. After going through three decades of self-guided exploration in abstract expressionism, the art of the 20th century, and post-war impressionism, he arrived at the door of realism. To continue his area of study, Greg experimented with new techniques, media as well as innovative processes and concepts. Mr. Stirling is also an engineer, kinetic metal sculptor, and automotive enthusiast.
