A final salute to the venerated Mezger engine as well as the ultimate evolution of Porsche’s 997, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 was produced in a limited series of just 600 cars worldwide featuring more aggressive aerodynamics, unique trim, a 6-speed manual gearbox, and a special 4.0-liter flat-six producing up to 500 HP. This Carrara White 2011 example, #214, was particularly well-equipped from the factory including optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB), the Front Axle Lift System, Sport Chrono Package Plus, GT Silver Metallic wheels, and the Extended Carbon Package. Rigorously maintained and accompanied by supporting records, this highly collectible GT3 RS 4.0 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York showing just over 4k miles on the odometer.
This GT3 comes finished in its debut theme of Carrara White with contrasting red and silver accents and lettering as well as optional GT Silver Metallic painted wheels. Compared to the standard GT3 RS, the 4.0 version sports front dive planes for additional downforce to accommodate a more aggressively angled rear wing. The factory 19” center-lock wheels come dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and a service record shows two pressure sensors were replaced earlier in 2021. Clear paint protection film has been applied over the full front end and ahead of the rear wheels, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report.
The cockpit of the 4.0 is trimmed in a unique combination of Black leather and Red Alcantara including carbon-fiber bucket seats and special lightweight door panels with red pull straps. Other details include carbon fiber door sills with the “RS 4.0” logo, a serialized limitation plaque above the glovebox, and a special titanium blue central tachometer dial with gear shift indicator and model logo. This example features the Extended Carbon Package with air vents in carbon fiber, belt outlet trim in carbon fiber, and a rear center console in carbon fiber. Deviated stitching spans the dashboard, door panels, center console, and rear compartment. A complete list of factory options can be found below:
