Detailer's Domain: Porsche GT3RS

This was a very low mile car in a private collection. Pretty much in great shape needed a clean up/polish and some Swissvax treatment.

(sorry in advance for the bad pictures.)

Brief info on this beast Porsche 997 GT3 RS

The first, and highly anticipated, 911 is the upcoming GT3 RS -- which will make an appearance worldwide. The GT3 RS uses the wider rear fenders of the Carrera 4, a wider rear track, a more aggressive rear wing, and a modified front spoiler lip. The RS will be offered in the same 1970s colours that made the 1973 Carrera RS famous, as evidenced by the bright orange and green roll bars in test mules as well as the edges where their black peelcoats are shrinking. The new GT3 RS will lose weight compared to the standard 997 GT3 with items like a carbon-fiber wingtop, the extensive use of composite bodywork, and lightweight glass. It will homologate several changes for the upcoming 2007 GT3 RSR race car, possibly including a 3.8-liter flat six instead of the 3.6-liter, 415-hp unit in the new GT3.
