Webber buys Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Feb 23, 2011

Someone at Porsche must have wet themselves when they realised that the tall, dark Australian chap who just wandered into the dealership was in fact Formula 1 star and all round nice guy, Mark Webber.

Clearly it didn't take long for marketing cogs to begin working, and as a result the Red Bull driver agreed to turn a few laps for the cameras at the manufacturer's Silverstone centre in his shiny new £170,000 911.

Quite a coup for Porsche you might think. But this kind of endorsement probably comes quite easy when you produce a car as formidable as the 620bhp 911 GT2 RS.
