Described by every creditable performance motoring journal as "the best driver's 911 yet", Porsche introduced the outstanding GT3 RS Generation II in May of 2010 to great critical acclaim. Not least for the 444bhp engine which gave the car a 0-60mph time of 3.9 secs and a 0-100mph time of 8.4 secs, on the way to a top speed of 196mph. Effectively a 'Carrera Cup' car for the road, the mind-blowing performance of the car combined with racing-derived suspension, and an exceptional ride/handling balance, also allowed the possibility of daily usage for the privileged few. And it was to be just a few - with only 35 cars officially imported by the UK dealer network, an average of just one car per dealer.

According to the accompanying maintenance booklet, this right-hand drive GT3 RS was delivered on the 28th July 2010 through Porsche Centre Cambridge and is finished in the striking combination of Aqua Blue with Red wheels and detailing. Options when new included Ceramic Brakes, Sport Shock Absorbers, Sport Chrono Package, Speed Yellow Seat Belts, Instrument Dials in Guards Red, Carbon Door Guards, Dark Grey Luggage and Porsche Vehicle Tracking. Later that year the car was taken to Hong Kong where it spent the next seven years of its life before returning to these shores. There are a variety of invoices and details in the owner's file showing the maintenance history during this period.

On its arrival here late last year, this striking RS was sent to Porsche Centre Silverstone for a health check and oil service and the information on this is detailed in the aforementioned file, along with the 'rev check'. Arriving at our auction with two sets of keys, all the original booklets, a fresh MOT, and with just over 11,000 miles indicated, this special, and now very collectable, 911 is ready to thrill.
