George Clooney, well known for his love of cars and motorcycles, is apparently celebrating his 54th birthday with a new Porsche 911 GT3 RS as a present. According to reports, Clooney has already test driven the car in the U.K., and plans to replace an older Porsche with the new model.
Clooney owns several impressive vehicles, including a 1959 Chevrolet Corvette and a Harley Davidson.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS features a 4.0-liter flat-six good for 500 horsepower and 338 pound-feet of torque, all of which is directed to the rear wheels via Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission.
Did Clooney or his new wife Amal actually buy this car? Or is this “gift” just a bit of genius PR on the part of Porsche? Think about it: the new car goes on sale in the U.S. this July, (priced starting at $176,895) and Mr. Clooney is one of the few, extremely famous people who will have one of the first models.
