Delivered new to AMAG Genéve Automobiles & Moleurs SA, Geneva this 996 Turbo was ordered in Basalt Black metallic paintwork, with a black leather interior, an electric sunroof, the Turbo Aero-Kit and the desirable X50 Power Kit. The X50 option consists of larger K24 turbochargers and intercoolers and a revised ECU, raising the engine’s output from 414 to 444bhp.

Between October 2021 and June 2022 it underwent a thorough mechanical restoration with new original Porsche front and rear suspensions as well as a new original fuel pump fitted. On the same occasion the original Porsche exhaust was refitted. During the restoration process the front headlights were polished. Its original owner’s manuals, service book and Swiss registration documents will be included, along with recent maintenance invoices.
