The concept of the rather special Porsche 911 GT2 is to take the most powerful turbo engine in the range of the day and combine it only with rear wheel drive and a manual gearbox. At the same time Porsche upgrade and modify the suspension, brakes and engine output whilst lightening and removing interior components to create the ultimate drivers version of the car at that time. This recipe has been used with the 993, 996 and 997 versions of their iconic 911 model. This car is the 997 GT2 RS version of the Porsche 911 introduced in May 2010 and is one of just 500 produced worldwide. The engine uses twin variable geometry water cooled turbo chargers to produce a serious 620bhp and 516 lbs foot torque which lead to a terminal speed in excess of 205mph and a 0-60mph time of just 3.4 seconds! Supplied new to Austria on 24-11-2010 as a 2011 model year car finished in Black with Black Leather and Alcantara seats, this left hand drive car was specified with cruise control and sports bucket seats in addition to all the standard items - which include a carbon bonnet, factory roll cage and carbon brakes . The car was then sold on (as many were because of their rarity and price premiums) to Dubai. Recently imported back from Dubai to the UK the car now has a Nova reference number and can therefore be UK registered if desired and has all taxes paid or could be exported unregistered. It has covered just 8284 Kms from new (which is 5,150 miles) and represents a rare opportunity to experience the ultimate version of the 997 which has already started to be recognised as a modern classic and significantly escalate in value.
