High performance machines that debuted at Goodwood ...

This weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed not only celebrated motoring's very rich past but also offered a glimpse at the future with the introduction of several brand-new, high performance machines.
The most exhilarating of these is certainly the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Although strictly rear-wheel drive, it is the most powerful road legal, regular production 911 ever with 700hp available from the twin-turbo six-cylinder engine. To help keep control of all this power, the GT2 RS is equipped with rear-wheel steering and massive carbon-composite brakes. There is also an optional Weissach package that strips a further 30kg from the car's kerb weight. Available now, the 911 GT2 RS costs Euro 285,000 in Germany.
British manufacturer Vauxhall will bid farewell to the mighty Holden-based VXR8 model with this special GTS-R version. Production of Vauxhall's most powerful car ever is strictly limited to 15 examples and features a 595hp version of GM's supercharged V8.
Announced at the recent Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin's high performance AMR Pro treatment is now available for the Vulcan track-day car. While mechanically, the Vulcan AMR Pro is identical to the original specification car, it features a revised body that is both lighter and produces more downforce. The AMR Pro package is available to all owners of the 24 Vulcans built last year and it seems that most are interested in having their V12-engined beasts upgraded even further.
