Mexico Blue | Coupé | 6 Speed Manual | 4.0 litre flat six | 1,462 kms | SOLD
Engineered as the most pure modern 911 with flavours of the past blended with leading edge tech of today, the Type 991 911 R is an immutable modern classic, singularly focused on thrilling the driver.
In March of 2016 Porsche unveiled the limited edition 911 R for the Geneva Motor Show.
Using the engine from one of Stuttgart’s finest creations, the 997 GT3 RS's normally aspirated 4.0 litre 493 hp engine, and a new six-speed manual transmission, the R was a T.K.O.
The reason this car is so special is because it bucks contemporary trends of turbocharging and automatic, PDK, DSG and DCT transmissions with zero compromise taking the driver back to grass roots driving for the sake of driving.
The rear seats and infotainment system are deleted, the six-speed manual gearbox is lighter than the PDK type, the front wings are constructed of carbon composite, the roof is magnesium, side and rear glass is polycarbonate, the exhaust system is moulded titanium and the sound insulation has been peeled away to achieve a kerb weight of just 1,370 kilograms.
That makes this road going monster 50 kilograms lighter than the GT3 RS and faster with a 0-100kmh time of just 3.1 seconds, that’s 0.4 of a second quicker than its more track focused brother.
One of just four Paint To Sample (PTS) cars produced in Right Hand Drive and the only car of its kind in the world, the significance of this rare Mexico Blue over Houndstooth 911 R cannot be overstated.
With the opportunity to order a PTS vehicle afforded to only a very select few, other options also had to be chosen that would make each car all the more unique.
