Despite not having technical details on the GT2 RS, the unexpected reveal gives us a first glimpse of its aggressive looking body. The front bumper now features front vents even larger than those found on the GT3 RS. It also gets a massive rear wing, carbon fiber roof, vented front fenders and a vented hood.

While the rear of the actual vehicle was not shown during the presentation, it was shown in the virtual demo of the upcoming racing sim. As seen in the spied photos of the GT2 RS, it features a redesigned rear bumper with two large round exhaust tips. Meanwhile inside, the cabin stripped down and has been fitted with a roll-cage and racing seats.
