About This Car
“The 997 GT2 RS is not available with much in the way of driver aids, like performance-oriented traction control or Porsche’s double-clutch gearbox (PDK). Fully defeatable stability and traction control are it. Unlike other Porsche models, though, these controls will remain off even after the ABS is triggered, a huge boon for track days.”
Development of the GT2 RS began in 2007, one year before the 997 GT2 was unveiled, as a skunk-works effort. It was dubbed “project 727” a number based on the Nissan GT-R’s 7:26.7-minute lap time around the Nurburgring Nordschleife. In 2010, the GT2 RS beat the GT-R’s time by an impressive nine seconds, stopping the clock at 7:18.
Although Nissan improved the GT-R’s time in 2011 and 2013, it didn’t manage to overtake the GT2 RS until 2015, when the Nismo-prepped version lapped the German track in 7:08.
When it was launched at the 2010 Moscow Auto Show, the GT2 RS marked the absolute climax of the 911 range, becoming the fastest, lightest, and most powerful road-going Porsche to have ever been created. Production was limited to 500 cars with only 131 units allocated to the US market, which gave the GT2 RS collectible status as soon as it hit the streets.
With the GT2 RS, you get a manual gearbox, wider front and rear tracks, lots of carbon fibre (bonnet, front and rear spoilers, air intakes), ceramic brakes, titanium exhaust, aluminum doors, and centre-lock wheels shod with dry weather-optimised Michelin Cup tyres. In total the GT2 RS weighs just 1,370 kg, exactly the same as the naturally aspirated GT3 RS and 220 pounds less than the latest 991 GT2 RS.
Going hand in hand with the weight reduction, Porsche added a lot more power to the already potent 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat-six in standard GT2s. Incredibly, they managed to squeeze out 90 more horses from the flat-six, upping total output to an insane 620 horsepower with 516 pound-feet of torque.
The power gain is due to a turbo pressure increase, from 20 psi, as provided in a standard GT2, to 23 psi. A new radiator system with a larger block depth and an improved cooling network with enhanced airflow increase the efficiency of the intercoolers by 15 percent. This in turn more effectively cools the air under pressure, which increases air density and oxygen content, allowing for more fuel to be burned, thus boosting the overall power output to stratospheric levels.
Speedart Motorsports proudly presents for your consideration a unique acquisition opportunity of Chassis no. 482 in spectacular condition, dressed in proper lightweight livery and impeccably maintained.
This GT2 RS was ordered in arguably the most representative color combination of the model, finished in GT silver metallic with interior black hides and Indian red safety belts. Furthermore, since the car was commissioned in the spirit of a true Rennsport thoroughbred, all lightweight options were selected at Zuffenhausen consisting of the ultra desirable carbon fibre wings, lightweight halogen lights, lightweight lithium-ion battery and finally a pair of carbon fibre racing bucket seats enveloping both driver and passenger. Some additional cosmetic enhancements include the extended leather package as well as the rear section of the center console covered in leather with a galore of Alcantara surfaces adorning the business office.
The provenance of this significant supercar is well known to us and documented as following. The supplying dealer, Porsche of Beverly Hills listed for sale the freshly arrived GT2 RS on 2/24/2011. The car was first registered on 4/19/2011 and transported to its first owner in Appleton, WI, who enjoyed the car for seven months before placing it up for sale on 11/22/2011. During this period he drove the car a little over 4,000 miles and serviced her at his local Porsche main dealer, Bergstrom Premier Motor Cars.
On 04/02/2012, the car was purchased by a German collector (the owner of Dautol GmbH, a medical supplies company) and exported to Germany, where the speedometer was changed from mph to km/h and the US rear bumper “bubbles” were removed in lieu of the more attractive European appliqué.
The car remained with this collector until it was purchased by its current custodian on 3/31/2017 and then returned to the United States, registered in the state of Montana with 7,849 miles on the clock on December 4, 2017. At the request of the new owner the selling dealer at the time facilitated a pre-purchase 111 point inspection, performed by Porsche Zentrum Bensberg, Germany in June, 2017 and passing with flying colors. On October 27, 2017, a 2 year Porsche Extended Warranty was issued and accompanies the motorcar until June, 2019.
