2004 Porsche (911) 996 GT3 RSR for sale!

The 996 GT3 R was introduced in 1999 as a replacement for the  (last) air cooled 993 RSR. Before its introduction, it was extensively tested at Weissach and Paul Ricard. Reduction in weight over the GT3 road car was achieved by carbon fibre body panels and plexi-glass rear and side windows. The front nose section contained additional air inlets for engine and brake cooling. A steel roll cage was welded into the body and the car was fitted with a full air-jack system, fire extinguisher and racing seat with safety harness. The suspension was similar to the GT3 road car in principle, but with variable springs, adjustable shocks, anti-roll bars and spherical joints. Large brake discs  without ABS were fitted, too.

The vehicle in detail

Class wins at the 1999 and 2000 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The 3.6-litre type M96/77 engine developed 405bhp at 8.200rpm when fitted with a 43.1 mm air restrictor plate, thereby meeting class regulations. The engine was fitted with a Bosch Motronic 3.1 engine management system. Other engine modifications included titanium conrods and valves, a racing exhaust system, as well as a dry-sump lubrication with an oil-water heat exchanger. A 6-speed sequential manual transmission was also installed. Notable ins for the GT3 R include class wins at the 1999 and 2000 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Highly eligible for the Peter Auto and Masters racing series including Le Mans Classic.

The 2004 Porsche 996 GT3 RSR, as presented here for sale, was the ultimate development of the 996 GT3 racing derivats, featuring a 450bhp, 3.8-litre flat-6 engine and a 6-speed sequential manual transmission. Reduction in weight was achieved by employing even more carbon fibre panels. Only 37 RSRs were factory built, although a lot of R and RS were upgraded to RSR spec.

Specific history of this car:

Chassis #3070 was one of the last built RSR and was delivered new to the Germany based semi-Works Team Yukos Freisinger Motorsport as an original GT3 RSR in white (Carreraweiss) in full ACO spec for 2004 season. Freisinger entered the car successfully in the FIA GT and other international championships.

After that the car was sold to Miguel Pais do Amaral and the car entered unter the „ASM Team Racing for Portugal“ in the Spanish GT Season 2005:

The car was then retired from modern racing and sold in 2014 to a German collector. It was soon brought back to its original Yukos Freisinger Motorsport livery and entered extremely successfully with the help of Roitmayer Motorsport in historic racing. 3070 soon started to win races again in the Peter Auto and Masters Series and is without any doubt one of the fastest 996 RSR in historic motorsport. So far the car finished every qualifying on pole position in the GT2 class and won the races in Spa, Estoril and at the Nürburgring. The RSR is today fitted with a correct 3.8-litre engine with 30.6mm restrictors and delivers around 490 hp. 3070 was also one of only three RSR factory lightweight chassis with special reinforcements that can only be found of the semi-Works cars from Yukos Freisinger Motorsport.
