EXTERIOR
Finished from factory in Pure Orange, this example of Porsche’s legendary GT3 RS is a real head-turner. The paintwork of this example shows in fantastic condition; with no more than a couple of stone chips to note it still retains a vibrant, glossy finish that amplifies the Porsche’s iconic curves.

Contrasting black 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. Smatterings of carbon fibre heighten the motorsport feel; with a factory specified carbon intake at the front and a huge spoiler perfectly framing 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.

INTERIOR
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. The RS spec tonal orange roll cage consumes the rear of the car, contrasting brilliantly against the black interior and a reminder to any occupants that this is no ordinary 911.

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 PCM 2 system (CD/Sat-Nav) 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. Paired to an 6-Speed manual gearbox the driving experience is exceptional; changes are slick and precise all the way through, adding to the wonderfully connected feel of the car. This example is also fitted with a £11k full Porsche Cup exhaust system, which includes Porsche Motorsport catalytic converters and silencers, making the distinct rasp of the 3.6l Flat-6 is an altogether more sonorous affair.

With 7 stamps in the original service book, all from Porsche main dealers, mechanical condition of this GT3 is impeccable.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 19-inch wheels are finished in black, matching the body-side RS emblems, they present in pristine condition and are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.

Specified with Ceramic Brakes the stopping power on this track special is immense, bringing the GT3 to a halt remarkably quickly and efficiently.
