EXTERIOR
Finished in RS green this GT3 RS looks incredible from all angles and in any location. One of the ultimate 911’s and the first generation of RS to wear the widebody shape, in whatever colour, the imposing silhouette with impossible wide arches and a huge motorsport rear wing make an impact. However, with a coat of factory RS green paint, it takes this example to another level.
The paintwork is all original factory applied, an indicator to the cars careful and pampered life. Black trim such as the front spoiler, stickers down the side, wing mirrors and window trim all remain in excellent condition and provide a stunning match to the hugely desirable colour scheme. Only a light dusting of stone chips on its wide rear hips indicate some signs of use and present far less than you’d expect with the distance covered.
INTERIOR
The interior of the RS is extremely focused yet can handle both track and road driving alike. Slip into the nomex bucket seats which provide ultimate support and all controls come naturally to hand, the steering wheel covered in alcantara along with a gearknob laced with additional carbon. The view out over the front of the green bonnet is matched with a jigsaw of green roll cage visible in the rear view mirror. Apart from some light scuff marks to the drivers side plastic protective kick plate the interior remains in excellent condition with minimal marks.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 3.6 litre dry-sumped flat 6 responds instantly to even the slightest throttle input, in part due to the single mass flywheel which also saves 8KG. Producing 409 bhp at a scintillating 8400 RPM it simply loves to rev with a spine tingling exhaust note letting you know the pedigree of the boxer engine. Although a true performance variant, the RS is quite happy at cruising speeds and pleasingly offers some considerations for driveability and ease of use.
The excellent 6 speed manual transmission allows you to fully revel in the sharpness of the engine with slick positive shifts. This particular car feels exceptionally sorted with no slack in the drive train whatsoever and benefiting from a recent clutch and flywheel replacement.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The wheels look stunning finished in gloss black with green RS detailing on the centre caps, which contrasts perfectly with the colourway of this wild Gen 1.
Behind the black spokes the calipers have been finished off in yellow to distinguish the PCCB optional addition. Hardly used, N rated Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres offer considerations for both road and track. With recent fast road geometry setup the car drives superbly.
