Unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show and largely based on 997.2 GT3 RS, the 997.2 GT3 Cup is a track-only model featuring a naturally-aspirated 3.8L engine producing 444 HP, a 1.7” wider rear end, a rear wing derived from the 911 GT3 Cup S, a lower front splitter, LED tail lights, a modified racing exhaust system, model-specific lightweight wheels, additional monoball joints on the control arms, front and rear 7-way adjustable sway bars, a vented hood, and a steering wheel-mounted information display. This 2012 example was said to have raced in the English GT3 Cup competition and wears a chrome wrap with blue and red accents over the original white finish. Having 116.7 total hours on the engine with 64 hours driven since the rebuild and only 5 hours on the comprehensively rebuilt transmission, this 997.2 GT3 Cup is now being offered at auction by the seller based out of Connecticut.
This 997.2 GT3 Cup sports a chrome wrap with a blue and red livery, and sponsorship logos over the original Carrera White finish. Equipment includes a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic engine lid, doors, aerodynamic mirrors, a vented hood with hood pins, a through-hood fuel filler, a center-exit exhaust, and a high rear wing as standard. Detailed images showing the condition of the exterior are provided in the gallery. The 18” center-locking BBS E88 wheels are mounted with Pirelli P Zero slicks, and an additional set of wheels is said to accompany the sale.
The motorsport-prepped cockpit features a Sparco P1300 seat and mount, a full roll cage with cross-braces and door bars, a full-vehicle fire suppression system, carbon fiber door panels with pull straps, a Cool Shirt box, a center panel with buttons for lighting, fuel pumps, fans, and fire suppression, a suede OMP steering wheel with a quick disconnect hub, a tall shifter with a hydraulic handbrake, a Motec digital instrument cluster, OMP LED shift lights, and a steering-wheel mounted digital information display. The seller notes some minor handprints on the OMP suede steering wheel.
This Cup Car is powered by a naturally aspirated 3.8 L flat-six engine derived from the roadgoing GT3 RS. 444 HP is delivered to the rear wheels by way of a Hollinger sequential 6-speed gearbox. Performance features include an Alpine Racing Cup suspension with additional monoball joints on the control arms, front and rear 7-way adjustable sway bars, Super Cup exhaust pipes, a Bosch-Porsche ECU, and composite cast disc brakes with Bosch racing ABS. The seller notes that the ABS is currently turned off. The car has received new fuel pumps and a cell service at 100 hours as well as a rebuilt breaking system at 85 hours. This 911 is said to have been well maintained, always receiving proper maintinance.
This vehicle will be sold on a bill of sale.
