This stunning Carrera GT is presented in Speed Yellow and is in beautiful condition having done 27k miles since new by its one and only owner. The paint work remains near perfect and is laid over the state of the art weaved carbon fibre body, much of which is still visible. The low sleek body combined with large side air inlets on both sides and front and back leaves any passers by in no doubt that this is an extreme supercar engineered by the best in the business. The rear spoiler extends at speeds over 75 mph to generate stabilising rear downforce, while the chassis using its carbon fibre monocoque and the engine as rigidity, provides race car manoeuvrability and performance. Bi-xenon headlights are fitted, as well as LED directional and brake lights.
The interior, dominated by aluminium and soft brown leather, is an incredible combination of luxury and race car tech. This GT has yellow seat belts that work beautifully with the brown/black leather bucket seats with yellow stitching that also runs around the leather on the door and centre console arm rest, a great touch that lifts the interior and adds something special to this particular example. Matching the steering wheel the handbrake leaver are finished in brown/black leather to finish off the variety of technical and lightweight materials used in the car. A beechwood gear lever knob is a classy finishing touch, harking back to the balsa wood gear knob used in the Le Mans-winning Porsche 917 of the early 1970s.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Opening the rear engine compartment reveals a visual treat, the V10 sat pride of place and cocooned in the carbon fibre monocoque chassis, pushrod actuated suspension and air intake scoops make up an engineering masterpiece. The engine bay is 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.
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 is presented on N rated Michelin tyres all round which show plenty of tread.
