The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 was launched in 2011, and was the final development of the track-inspired series of 997 GT3 RS models. Only 600 examples were made and it was the last hurrah for the motorsport-derived Mezger flat-six that was bored out from 3.8 to 4.0 litres, the largest displacement 911 engine ever. The normally aspirated power plant was crucially mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and achieved 494bhp at 8,250rpm. The 4.0 RS is considered by many to be one of the greatest drivers' cars of all time and according to EVO Magazine when the car was released: "It is the ultimate 911, and you could easily argue it's all the car you'll ever need. It will become an icon."
First delivered and registered in Germany, this RS 4.0 is finished in Carrera White with contrasting Carrera GT Silver wheels and is trimmed in Black leather and Red Alcantara, complementing the exterior perfectly and resulting in a stunning and eminently desirable 911.
The car has spent its entire life in Germany up until recently when it was imported into Monaco and is now indicating a modest 11,600kms (7,250mls). It has a full service history, most recently in October 2015 and very reassuringly, a two-year Porsche approved warranty which has only just commenced in November 2015.
Presented with invoices including the dealers bill of sale, this car is in superb original condition. The 'over revs' have also been tested and the results are extremely satisfactory with over revs in "Range 1" only. For those unsure of what this means, the Rev Range is measured from 1 to 6, Range 1 being just below the rev limiter, Range 2 is on the rev limiter with Ranges 3-6 being over the rev limiter, e.g if the car has been downshifted and mechanically over revved. Revs recorded in ranges 3 and 4 are considered by Porsche to be safe with such vehicles still eligible for Porsche Extended warranty. As such we can deem that this car has not been excessively driven.
Furthermore, this 4.0 RS enjoys this huge list of desirable options:
PCM including Satelite navigation system.
Front lift system.
Sport Chrono Pack.
90L fuel tank.
Sound package +.
Leather dash and door inserts.
6 point driver and passenger harness seatbelts.
Rear section roll cage in black.
Fire extinguisher (never used).
PORSCHE engraved on front centre arm rest.
Alloys in Carrera GT silver.
This car is a must have for the Porsche collector/enthusiast. Not only is it the last of the Mezger engined Porsches, the RS 4.0 is the only limited edition where each car is numbered, and the 4.0 RS will probably be the last manual "RS" variant to have rolled out of the Porsche factory.
