"A unique opportunity!"
We are delighted to offer for sale this beautiful 2 owner example Porsche 997.1 GT3 RS which is presented in immaculate condition. Only 1,106 examples of this first generation RS left the factory, making it one of the rarest ‘Rennsport’ Porsche 911 models ever built. The fantastic provenance and extensive spend on this car ensures it would make a fine addition to any collection.
The incredible 3.6L M97.77 Flat-Six revs to 8400rpm and produces 409bhp. This coupled with the fantastic 6-speed manual transmission makes for a very special and focussed driving experience.
The most recent keeper, an avid Porsche Collector, looked at various other 997.1 examples, prior to selecting this one as the perfect example to add to his collection. Throughout his ownership this car has been kept in a carcoon, and every care has been taken to ensure this car is presented in as good as a condition as it rolled off the production line. Total spend in 2020 alone was over £20,000 and included new ceramic discs all round, a major service with belt change, new clutch, repainting of the wheels and 4 new michelin pilot sport tyres were fitted.
The paintwork has been ceramic coating and is in fantastic condition throughout, including the underside, arches, engine bay and bonnet all of which are completely original. It is very rare to find a 997.1 RS which has original paintwork, as so many examples have received full resprays from hard use. This example is an exception and really has to be seen to understand how meticulous both of the previous keepers have been.
Inside the car is as new, and has also benefitted from a replacement radio screen, a bluetooth interface for phone connectivity and a vodafone tracking system. The carbon fibre racing seats are equipped with 6-point harnesses as well as conventional seatbelts depending upon how the car is being used. The interior is finished in a combination of alcantara and leather with a carbon black alcantara steering wheel with 12 o'clock marker.
