The world famous Porsche design 911 in arguably one of its best forms yet – the GT3 RS 4.0. The body on this 997 is unmarked with a wonderful deep lustre that looks perfect on this very special and rare paint to sample Meteor grey metallic RS – perfectly accentuating the distinct waist line that tucks neatly into the rear bumper and spoiler arrangement. It is only 1 of 2 cars worldwide believed to be painted in this colour.
The front splitter is pleasingly free of scuffs or marks, thanks largely in part to the front-lift system one would suspect, whilst the front end and rear arches have evaded the usual dusting of stone chips. With aerodynamic upgrades, inclusive of flics at the front and a larger spoiler at the rear, downforce becomes a critical attribute to driving characteristics along with hydraulic steering, no rear steer and a race derived engine in its biggest cubic capacity, it is no surprise the limited numbered 4.0 is the pinnacle of modern Porsches for both a driver and the collector.
The adjustable carbon fibre wing, GRP engine cover and lexan rear window contribute to the lightweight theme with even the badge on the bonnet replaced by a sticker.
Although bearing more than a passing resemblance to the Cup variant with a roll cage, this interior offers all modern day-to-day considerations. There are no unsightly marks to the seats, and the interior trim is free from chips or excessive wear; inclusive of sill strips, gearbox tunnel and pedal box. The alcantara steering wheel and gear shift both in excellent condition.
The driving position is absolutely spot on with the Carrera GT bucket seats combining sublime levels of road holding with excellent comfort. PCM 3, Front lift and cruise control along with an updated sound package add to the generous spec list to this particular car when ordered from the factory.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This is the most powerful naturally aspirated unit that Porsche have ever produced, It fires into life with a menacing growl with that familiar GT3 RS chatter and rattle from the race spec flywheel – aurally similar to it’s RSR stablemate. The supplying Porsche dealer has serviced the car within and above the recommended servicing routine on request of the owner. Under Porsche warranty all of its life and still covered till Feb 2019.
Clutch / gear engagement are positive and whilst entirely manageable around town, the ‘box is an absolute joy to use when pressing on; with a bolt action throw and perfect pedal positions for heel and toe.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The GT wheels painted in silver on this car house yellow calipers and as such signify the optional PCCB brake system which remains in excellent condition.
The light weight alloys are unmarked and wrapped in near new Porsche N rated Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2’s.
