PORSCHE 911 GETS MARTINI'D
Crass or class? Whatever you think here's what a 991 looks like after a Martini or two
The Martini Racing Edition is more than just a loud set of stripes, however. It also includes the Aerokit Cup front and rear spoilers, standard fit Sport Chrono package, PDK gearbox, sport design steering wheel, Porsche Communication Management with nav, and a Bose sound system.
Open the door, and you'll be greeted by stainless steel sill panels with illuminated "911 Carrera S - Martini Racing Edition" script (presumably just in case it's dark outside and your date doesn't clock the graphics), body-coloured dashboard accents with Martini Racing Edition badge, a black rev counter dial face and all-electric black leather sports seats.
being an S this 911 already punches out 400hp, and the PDK/Sport Chrono combo will comfortably see off 62mph in 4.1 seconds.
That's the good news.
The bad news is we've spoken to Porsche, and been told that just two - two - 911 Carrera S Martini Racing Editions are allocated to UK Porsche Centres, one black, one white. Prices start at £102,862, including the usual three-year warranty and driving course at Silverstone. Buyer with the fastest bank transfer presumably wins.
Cute. But for that money, we can't help thinking a £100,540 GT3 might be a better bet. With or without the built-in barbeque. On the other hand, this (one of three RHD) 930 Martini Turbo is achingly cool. POA indeed.
