Described by every creditable performance motoring journal as 'the best driver's 911 yet', Porsche introduced the outstanding GT3 RS Generation 2 in May of 2010 to great critical aclaim. Not least for the 444bhp engine which gave the car a 0 - 60mph time of 3.9 secs and a 0 - 100mph time of 8.4 secs, on the way to a top speed of 196mph. Effectively a 'Carrera Cup' car for the road, the mind blowing performance of the car combined with racing derived suspension, with an exceptional ride/handling balance, also allowed the possibility of daily usage for the priveleged few. Silverstone Auctions are a big fan of these cars and this stunning left-hand drive Porsche 997 GT3 RS (Gen II) is no exception. The car was supplied new by Porsche Zentrum Berlin in 2011 and has covered only 14,000 miles or 22,000 kms since.
