Whilst oriented towards driver involvement, there have still been weight savings over a GT3 RS. The use of a manual gearbox saves 20kg over a PDK, new carbon fibre front wings, optional single mass flywheel and the removal of sound deadening bring the total loss to around 50kg.
The car keeps the rear-wheel steer from the GT3 RS improving agility and handling, although the system has been recalibrated, along with the rear diffuser to ensure high-speed stability in the absence of the rear wing.
The 4.0 naturally aspirated flat-six will rev to 9,000rpm and produces 493bhp. Produced in very limited numbers, even with the more recent launch of the GT3 Touring, the R has proved itself to be the hugely desirable collectors preference 991.
Two services are recorded in the service book. The car’s first service took place at Porsche centre Reading in September 2018 at 1,183 mi. The car’s second service took place at Porsche Centre West London in September 2020 at 1,362 miles. Upon his purchase of the car, the current and second owner elected to obtain a Porsche approved warranty, which expires in November of 2023.

Currently showing just under 1,900 miles from new, it would be difficult to find a better optioned and more desirable 911 R in the U.K. In addition to the ultra-rare black paintwork and its must-have options of the 918 Spyder-style seats, single mass flywheel and front nose lift, this car presents in virtually as-new condition and is offered from the collection of its second owner.
This 911R is available for inspection immediately at our showrooms just outside of London.
