Porsche GT3 RS 4.0 Enhancement.Well this is abit of a special one for me,oh and for the people who dont know, heres some info about it.
After doing a customers other cars (x5 and x6 which i will try and put up a few photos of later) I was aloud to see what was hidden away in the garage and invited to come back again and do this lovely car :argie:
Joining the ranks of 911 GTS, 911 Speedster, 911 Sport Classic and 911 GT2 RS is the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 – the largest ever 911 engine, bolted into the lightest and most hardcore 911. Only 600 will be available worldwide from July (with about 40 destined for the UK), which is just in time for the release of the all-new 911 in September.
Still, it’s difficult to stay cynical with Porsche for too long. The 4.0-litre GT3 RS will be the closest a road-going Porsche gets to the iconic racing Porsches, thanks to race-bred tech like the crankshaft from the GT3 RSR, and titanium conn rods.
Look carefully at the pictures and you’ll see the little flic winglets on the front bumper. This is the first time a road-going Porsche has got these aero tweaks, which helps total downforce reach 190kg at top speed.
Peak power is 493bhp and max torque is 339lb ft – throw in the 1,360kg kerbweight, and 0-62mph should be possible in 3.9 seconds. Maximum speed is 193mph.
A few 911 comparisons for you – get your numbers head on. The turbo’d GT2 RS does 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds, the 911 GT3 RS 3.8 weighs 1370kg with 444bhp, and does 0-62mph in 4.0 seconds. As ever, Porsche’s talent for squeezing new models into the teeniest gaps never fails to impress.
Nor, we’ve no doubt, will this £128,466 car fail to impress. It might be nearing the end of its life, but the 997 911 is still one of the finest sports cars on sale. The GT3 RS 4.0 will be no different.
Few befores as you can see nothing to mankey (only has 1032 miles on it and is very well looked after by the owner)
However the brakes have been used quite heavily
After a prewash with CG Bug Bugger (sorry forgot to grab a photo of this stage) the car was given the usual 2bm
Wheels were washed with CG Diablo and a selection of brushes and my trusty Megs MF mitt.
The car was then dried by patting with the typical big blue MF
Then it was onto the polishing, as this car had been given a full wrap of Ventura Pro shield i was very careful with my selection and after speaking with a pro friend who had dealt with this before i desided on going for CG V38 on a red Hex pad. As the car was so new very little needed actually correcting so this was just used to bring back abit of gloss to the wrap.
Sorry there are no during photos of this stage or 50/50s but the white was hard enough fr me to even see and imperfections in let alone photo them.
Now the wheels were treated to a coat of CG Wheel Guard
The plastic windows all round treated to a coat of CG JetSeal 109
Airbox treated to JetSeal
Shuts treated to JetSeal

Got abit tired at this point so sat down and polished the exhaust using CG Metalshine and some 00 wire wool
The whole interior was given a wipe down with CG Greener Clean (dont worry i didnt use the neat bottle it was diluted to 10:1
Absolutly no durings of this mission, cleaning the back window proved to be an absolute pain as you can see :devil:
All trim treated with CG Extreme Shine
All plastics in the frunk also treated with CG Extreme Shine
Lastly a coat of CG Pete's 53 to top off the lovely car
And a few afters
And the interior
Sorry they arnt the best, light was fading and due to me forgetting my tripod i was limited to the photos i could get.
Hope youve enjoyed reading this, i know i really enjoyed the detail
And C&C welcome
