EXTERIOR
Finished in a glossy coat of the launch colour GT Silver this Carrera GT looks sensational. The carbon fibre weave which makes up much of this engineering masterpiece remains largely visible across its sleek body. The design seems to get better with age and doesn’t seem to have dated one bit since its introduction over 16 years ago.
The paint condition is superb with only light remedial work carried out through its life and fully documented by Porsche Reading. The car is completely accident free and presents as a mollycoddled garage queen.
INTERIOR
The interior, dominated by aluminium and soft black leather, is an incredible combination of luxury and race car tech, not to mention the abundance of carbon fibre that make up the main tub as well as the door cards. The cockpit is in superb condition and presents still with a fresh factory leather smell with no negatives to note. The Becker CD Radio unit with the premium sound system and air conditioning add some minimal considerations for cruising alongside the complete dark grey luggage set that was specified from new.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Opening the rear engine compartment reveals a visual treat; the V10 sat pride of place, cocooned in the carbon fibre monocoque chassis with pushrod actuated suspension and air intake scoops making up this engineering masterpiece. The engine bay is incredibly clean and the mid-mounted normally-aspirated all-alloy V-10 engine on this example is immaculate, fitted with double overhead camshafts, variable valve timing, titanium connecting rods and a dry-sump oil system ensuring reliable and consistent oil supply and pressure. Twinned with a traditional 6-speed manual gearbox with racing-type three-plate carbon clutch it is a potent and very mechanical combination and experience, allowing jaw-dropping acceleration and a top track speed of over 200 mph.
With sole OPC Reading service history from new this CGT has received everything its ever needed within a mileage based servicing routing annotated in its original service book.
In the past 500 miles it has been serviced no fewer than 4 times with its last clutch reading at 12,656 at 29.9mm during its recent major engine out service at Reading.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Yellow monoblock callipers can be clearly seen through the Carrera GT’s five-spoke forged light alloy wheels, 19 inch at the front and 20 inch at the rear, all wheels remain spotless as do the anodised wheel hub nuts, blue on the right, red on the left side distinguishing thread direction. The calipers are part of the awesome Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) system that owed little to Porsche road cars at the time, and which continues to provide astonishing stopping power.
The car has just been fitted with Porsche supplied Michelin Supersport N rated tyres all round and has done less than 50 miles since.
