One of the ultimate 911’s the 997.1 GT3 was the first generation of RS to wear the widebody shape, creating an imposing silhouette with its flared arches and a huge motorsport rear wing. This example is finished in a unique orange specifically blended for the RS, with contrasting black decals, wing mirrors and black spoiler ends on the carbon wing.
The interior of the RS is extremely focused and screams motorsport, with the handbrake, gearknob and steering wheel all finished in alcantara. The fixed back, torso hugging carbon seats give all the support needed, whilst the roll cage reminds you that this is as close to a Cup car that you can get for the road.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 3.6 litre dry-sump flat 6 responds instantly to even the slightest throttle input, in part due to the single mass flywheel which also saves 8KG. Producing 409 bhp at a scintillating 8400 RPM it simply loves to rev with a spine tingling exhaust note letting you know the pedigree of the boxer engine. Although a true performance variant, the RS is quite happy at cruising speeds and pleasingly offers some considerations for drivability and ease of use.
The excellent 6 speed manual transmission allows you to fully revel in the sharpness of the engine with slick positive shifts. This particular car feels exceptionally sorted with no slack in the drive train whatsoever alongside a recent gearbox oil change. An extensive service history by main dealers and specialists inclusive of recent work totalling nearly 10k ensures it is in fine mechanical fettle.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The wheels look stunning finished in gloss black with orange RS detailing on the centre caps, which contrasts perfectly with the colourway of this wild Gen 1.
Behind the black spokes the callipers have been finished off in red, recently refurbished as part of a brake overhaul to include new discs and pads all round and having now covered less than 1k of road miles. N rated Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres show plenty of tread and offer considerations for both road and track. Recent geometry after extensive work ensures this GT3 is on point and drives as intended.
