Believed to be one of just 66 units of the 911 GT3-R constructed to 2000 model year specification
Competed in 14 FIA GT events throughout 2000 and 2001; driven by Andrea Bertolini, Fabio Mancini, and Gianni Collini
Winner of the N-GT class in the 2000 A1-Ring 500 kilometres at the hands of Mancini and Collini
Ideally suited to Masters Endurance Legends and Endurance Racing Legends Support Races at Le Mans Classic
This handsome example of Porsche’s groundbreaking 911 GT3-R was delivered new to Italian GT team ART Engineering, in whose hands it enjoyed considerable success. At the A-1 Ring 500 kilometres—the first round of the 2000 FIA GT Championship—Fabio Mancini and Gianni Collini drove the car to a fine N-GT class win. This came ahead of stiff class opposition from fellow Porsche teams EMKA, Larbre, and Red Bull Racing. Other notable results that year included 7th in class at Brno, 8th at Magny-Cours, and 10th at Lausitzring.
For 2001, ART retained the services of future Ferrari test driver, Andrea Bertolini. At Zolder, Bertolini and co-driver Alberto Radaelli scored a noteworthy 11th overall and 5th in class; the pair also finished 8th in class at Silverstone. Later, Bertolini and Jirko Malcharek repeated this result at Hungaroring.
Following the car’s competitive swansong in the 2003 Vallelunga 6 Hours—in which it was campaigned by Tirelli Motorsport, finishing 8th overall and 4th in class—it was rebuilt by Modena Classic Works in 2006. Acquired by the vendor in 2020, it would—subject to the necessary safety updates, crack testing, and full mechanical check—be well placed for a return to the track in the Masters Endurance Legends or Endurance Racing Legends series to which it is ideally suited.
