Porsche 911 GT2: More info from TopGear

TopGear has more information for you about the Porsche 911 GT2, including the UK retail price.
The biggest news is the mighty horsepower of the 911's turbocharged 3.6-litre boxer six. Over 500 horses is a stunning figure - 72bhp more than the 911 Turbo, with torque of 505lb ft from just 2,200rpm - and it's been produced, says Porsche, by concentrating on efficiency.
The GT2 will also be the first road Porsche to top 200mph in production guise. At 204mph (only on a track, as Porsche is keen to point out), you'll probably be glad for the strengthened bodyshell and six airbags on board. Actually, at 204mph you'll probably be glad if you can see straight.
Porsche was even kind enough to tell us how much the 911 GT2 will set us back when it reaches British shores in November. A curiously precise £131,070 will secure your spec'd GT2, as well as Porsche's Vehicle Tracking System and Driving Experience course.
