Details Specification

UK-delivered, RHD, with two former keepers and just 24,000 miles 444bhp, 0-60 in 3.9 secs, 193 mph Serviced Dec. 2018 by Porsche Centre Wilmslow. Recent 'rev-range' report with a perfect score Three other services, one at Porsche Centre Edinburgh and two with Centurion Porsche specialists Importantly, this car has all its original panels. New Tyres. All original books   In February 2006, Porsche revealed their first generation 997 GT3, and in common with all GT2 and GT3 iterations, most of the developments and upgrades were directly related to performance improvements on their competition cars and the associated homologation requirements for FIA approval. In addition to the new 415bhp, 3.6-litre flat-six with its six-speed box, the vehicle pioneered "zero lift" aerodynamics, meaning, at speed, the body shape created only aerodynamic downforce with no grip-diminishing lift, and made extensive use of a racing-related version of Porsche's active PASM suspension system. This made it the first of the quick RS or GT3 versions to feature an electronically-adjustable suspension setup. An 'RS' version of the GT3 became available in October of that year weighing some 20 kilos less, and this saving was achieved by the use of a carbon fibre rear wing, a plastic engine cover and a lightweight rear window made from the same material. A slightly wider track was concealed in the muscular rear end provided by the Carrera 4 shell, aiding grip and stability at the expense of a little bit more drag, however, the reduction in weight to 1,375Kg resulted in an improved power to weight ratio of 300bhp /ton. 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 race-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 to the UK RS-dealer network, an average of just one car per dealer. This Generation II car was supplied by Porsche UK in right-hand drive and has covered just 24,000 miles from new in the hands of two former keepers. It's accompanied by the original book pack and a service record that indicates that the car has been serviced five times, two at Porsche Centre Edinburgh, two at Centurion Porsche and most recently, in December 2018, at Porsche Centre Wilmslow. The most recent 'Rev-range Report' was fine and we understand that all the panels are original. Distinctively finished in Carrera White with Red wheels, decals, mirrors, wing endplates, roll cage, and seatbelts, it's recently been fitted with new tyres all round.
