Presented in black with contrasting orange decals on the side and rear, this example of Porsche’s legendary GT3 RS is a real head-turner. The paintwork of this example presents very well, the solid black coat that is so easily prone to swirl marks has been lavished with attention from our in-house team of detailing experts to ensure a mirror finish.
Contrasting orange is used throughout the car as part of its factory colour specification, visible on the door mirrors and rear spoiler ends to match decals and wheels. The carbon fibre construction of the huge rear wing perfectly frames the widened rear end. The 997.1 was the first production RS to use the wider Turbo body shell and arguably the prettiest of any of the modern 911 RS specials.
The black interior is in excellent condition, free of any tears or major marks. The bucket seats are composed of carbon fibre composite and provide maximum support, with their deep contours and tactical cushioning they are a great combination of weight saving and comfort.
Alcantara is used for the steering, wheel gear lever, handbrake, door cards and headliner and provides a sense of race car aesthetics along side generous factory options of luxury to include extended leather, covering the dashboard and door tops.
Air Conditioning and the Porsche Communication system are also a welcome feature of this GT3, with the slight compromise in weight being vastly overshadowed by the comfort and usability it creates for such a focused road car.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The exceptionally powerful, rear-mounted, horizontally-opposed, ‘boxer’ 6-cylinder engine in the RS is shared with the standard GT3, but revs up even more dynamically and spontaneously.
With a stamped up service book from both OPC dealers and specialists, the most recent of which was completed less than 50 miles ago, the mechanics of the RS are in excellent condition.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 19-inch wheels are finished in tonal orange, matching the body-side RS emblems, they present in pristine condition and are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.
Specified with Ceramic Brakes the stopping power on this track special is immense, bringing the GT3 to a halt remarkably quickly and efficiently.
