Officially unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motorshow, the Gen 2 911 Type 997 GT3 RS delivers one of the most visceral driving experiences on the road today, a pure racing car with number plates.
Described by the majority of respected performance motoring press as "The best driver's 911 yet, on paper the Gen 2 GT3 RS offers a mighty 500hp launching you from 0-100kmh in a spine tingling 3.8 second blast. The ride/handling balance is exceptional and the cabin is civilised, resulting in a very quick car that can comfortably be used daily.
From the lightweight short ratio 6 speed manual transmission, plexiglass rear window, carbon Recaro bucket seats, dynamic engine mounts, carbon fiber rear wing and titanium exhaust, every inch of the GT3 RS is engineered to excite. There are 911’s and then there's the 911 GT3 RS.
Sold new by Porsche Centre Adelaide in May of 2010, available here is one of just 45 Australian delivered Gen 2 911 Type 997 GT3 RS’s in, travelled just 5,465 kilometres.
Ordered with the Clubsport package featuring roll cage, 6 point racing harness in Red and fire extinguisher this exceptionally well maintained and low kilometre car is finished in the hero colour combination of Grey Black with Guards Red decal.
Optioned to extract the most out of what this road racer has to offer this car also features a black faced stop-watch, Sports-Chrono package and lift-kit- a highly desirable option ordered at great additional expense and a testament to the excellent condition the car now presents in.
Indicative of the short distance this car has travelled, outside the condition is excellent. The paintwork still carries a factory mirror finish, the original contrast Guards Red centre-lock alloys show zero signs of wear and the overall presence is as new.
Within the cockpit the trend continues, the spotless carbon backed Recaro’s with Red RS 3.8 embossing, and touch points like the alcantara bound steering wheel and gear knob normally so prone to wear all present in excellent condition.
Available with the car are the original log books detailing a Porsche service history as well as the original key bound within the leather wallet.
There’s no other driving experience quite like what the legendary RS variants offer.
From the now hallowed 1973 2.7 RS onwards, they have always offered the purest, simplest, most exciting and rewarding hit of adrenaline fuelled motoring and they’re popularity and ever increasing values are symptomatic of this.
Back to basics in the best possible way and representing a rare and exciting investment opportunity this Gen 2 911 Type 997 GT3 RS is something quite special.
