Description

There were only 113 examples of the iconic GT3 RS model produced for the UK market and this is a particularly fine example. Finished in Carrara White with red stripes it features a full specification that includes Litronic lighting system, Front Centre Console, Porsche CD-R 23 Radio, Auto air conditioning and front floor mats with Porsche logo. This is all detailed in the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity that accompanies the car. It remains in excellent condition throughout and has covered just 29,000 miles with a full history from new.
This GT3 RS was supplied when new by the Porsche Centre in Sutton Coldfield on the 8th March 2004 to a fortunate local enthusiast. This model was in high demand when announced and only the more dedicated Porsche buyers were able to order a car. He sold the car in October the following year to an enthusiast in North Yorkshire who immediately dispatched the car to Porsche specialist and Manthey Performance dealer, JZM, for the Manthey K410 engine conversion. This gives an extra 30bhp and increased torque through the fitment of new ECU’s, manifolds and different catalytic converters. An invoice on file from JZM for £8,500 in November 2005 details this work at 8,375 miles.

Several enthusiasts have enjoyed the Porsche since then, all have looked after it carefully as is clear from the fine condition of the car and from the full and comprehensive service record. Rarely have we seen so much invoicing for the 29,000 miles covered:
