2007 Porsche 911 997 GT3 RS

Jump to Images

The high-revving naturally aspirated GT3 RS features a number of improvements on the GT3 to make it even more track-ready. It is 44 lbs lighter, thanks to an adjustable carbon fiber wing, and a plastic rear lid and rear window. Though power is the same as the GT3, a close ratio six speed with a single mass flywheel shaves a second off of the 0-62 mph time compared to the standard GT3. The body is also 44 mm wider in the rear to accommodate a wider track for improved stability and grip.

Replacing the 996 GT3 RS was the 997 GT3 RS - the last-ever manual water-cooled RS produced by Porsche. Two examples will join the sale, the first of which is a striking 2007 ‘gen 1’ example in limited edition Orange paint with contrasting black ‘RS Script’ and decals. The car is an original UK right-hand drive car with only two previous owners and has covered just 5,527 miles from new. The car’s sensibly guided at £130,000 - £150,000 and will be sold with a current MOT and a recent service.

Auction line-up sees 57 high quality Porsches go under the hammer, of which six are low-mileage lightweight ‘RS’ Rennsport editions.

The Porsche Sale, which is presented by Silverstone Auctions and Porsche Club GB, will take place at Silverstone Circuit on Sunday 25 October. www.silverstoneauctions.com
