This European specification, pristine example was purchased new by a notable french businessman. He intended to purchase the car from a French Porsche Centre, but with a scarce production run of only 500 examples worldwide and very few of those being delivered to each market, he did not manage to find an allocation within the country. Through contacts and friendships, he got an allocation for his desired 997 GT2 RS in Porsche Center Bahrain.
The order was placed on October 13th 2010. He specified the car to his taste, choosing special exterior color A1 Black -standard colors choices being Guards Red and GT Silver- with light gold wheels and interior leather/alcantara trim in red and black. Amongst other relevant optionals that were ordered, out of the 3 different seat options, he chose the Lightweight bucket seats in addition to the 10kg lighter Lithium ion battery.
After taking delivery of his brand new GT2 RS, the car was sent to Paris via DHL air-freight. Upon its arrival in France, the vehicle was registered and lived all its life in Paris until we purchased it.
Nº17 of 500 is presented for sale with very low mileage, in completely first paint, matching numbers, unmodified and like-new condition. It has never been used on racetracks. It was always serviced by Porsche France and we have just serviced it prior to its sale at our Porsche specialist.
It has an extremely clean ECU reading, with a total of 154,4 operating hours and only 34 ignitions on rev range 1.
All documents regarding vehicle purchase, registration documents, history, maintenance, complete key set and COC are present. The original car cover, Porsche battery tender, fire extinguisher and original Schroth harness set (with box) are also included in the sale.
