It is with great pleasure we are offering for sale this absolutely stunning example of the Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0.
If you read this far, you probably already know most of the carbon fibre facts, unique details, and the great lengths Porsche went to creating this limited edition masterpiece. We feel we need not revisit all of the well-publicised specifications, and cut straight to telling you what make chassis number 368/600 the car you will want to buy.
First ordered by a lucky Mr Gerry Smith on the 17th of October 2011, he selected the following unique specification above and beyond the already impressive specification:
• Chrono pack plus
• Colour to sample Basalt Black metallic
• Exclusive – rear section of centre console in carbon fibre
• PCM including Nav module
• Sound package plus
• Adaptive sports seats
• Deletion of club sport package
• Fire extinguisher
• Exclusive floor mats with red surround and logo
• Porsche Ceramic composite brakes
• 90 litre fuel tank
• Front axle lifting system
• Exclusive footrest in sports look
• Auto dim mirrors with rain sensor
• Wheels painted GT silver
• Exclusive extended carbon package
• Exclusive sun visors in alcantara
• Inflatable spare tire added and centre lock tool kit
• Exclusive steering column casing in leather
• Individual silver stitching to door trim
• Individual silver stitching of pull handle
• Individual silver stitching of rear side panels
• Individual silver stitching to dashboard
• Individual silver stitching to side panel of centre console
The order was placed and Gerry took delivery in Oman on the 30th of January 2012 part exchanging his BMW X5.
Unlike many lucky buyers of these collectable cars, to Gerry this was the reward for a life’s hard work, and certainly one of the most important and emotive decisions he had ever made. Gerry is a UK citizen and outstanding engineer, with a serious eye for detail and has very exacting standards. We have been lucky enough to witness some of his work and it totally re-enforced why anyone would want to buy a car from him, we bet his BMW X5 was probably the best in Oman…
Knowing he was lucky to get one, let alone the only GT3 RS 4.0 delivered to Oman, he began a meticulous journey of recording every step of ownership.
When he handed us the history file, we thought he may have mistakenly given us the one from his 200K mile 964, nope he had kept every single piece of correspondence from Porsche, every fuel receipt, and certainly every single service invoice.
In mid-2013 when Gerry had finished his work in Oman he knew the car was coming home to Aberdeen and carefully arranged for its safe travel.
Upon arrival it went straight to Porsche and had all relevant checks, new rear lights and EU5 software applied to bring it fully up to European specification, then registered ready to be enjoyed.
Used sparingly and with an engineer behind the wheel, its has to be one of the best cared for examples in existance, Gerry has not skimped on anything and the car has always been under extended warranty, every service has been carried out by Porsche, over rev data always checked and clear, geometry checks done, and even before handing it to us has had new tyres and just been serviced again by OPC Aberdeen.
We are please to say we are about to extend the warranty for a further 2 years until February 2023!
We welcome any inspection by appointment and can be certain this is one of the finest examples ready to be enjoyed or tucked away as a very sound investment.
