RSK Splash

Today, it feels like you can’t open YouTube or open a magazine without hearing about yet another restomodded Porsche 911, so it takes something really special to attract our attention, and to get Chris Harris embracing a new and arguably more stylish persona just to get behind the wheel.

That’s where Tuthill’s latest creation, the RSK, comes in. Based on a 993-generation 911 RS, it has been fully restored from bare metal, is finished in the wonderful Ferrari colour of Verde Francesca, and most importantly, is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six with four-valve heads derived from those fitted to the ballistic, 11,000rpm Tuthill 911K.

The result is a sub-1,200kg stunner with an 8,000rpm redline, which is reported to have a better power-to-weight ratio than the current 992-generation 911 GT3, while remaining surprisingly approachable thanks to its billet callipers with carbon-ceramic brakes, Tuthill’s adjustable dampers, and an advanced electric power steering system.

As Collecting Cars tradition dictates, Chris puts the RSK through its paces on a slightly damp circuit, before exploring its capabilities on the road, and entering the parallel dimension of ‘Crankshaft 1996’. Will this be ‘just’ another mega-bucks 911 with a few modern touches, or has Tuthill pulled it out of the bag yet again? Watch the film to find out.

Have your say!
