Based on the 997 Carrera 4S widebody with a ‘double-bubble’ roof, all the cars were finished in a bespoke Sport Classic Grey finish. Design elements from the RS 2.7 include a ‘duck-tail’ rear spoiler and Fuchs five-blade alloys with a bespoke interior finish in Expresso Brown leather with woven leather and fabric seat and door inserts. Mechanically the Sport Classic benefits from a specially modified 3,800cc, four-cam, four-valve, normally aspirated and direct-injected engine. This is aided by a ‘Power Kit’ that includes ported and polished combustion chambers, special resonance intake manifolding that helps maintain peak power throughout the rev range, and a re-mapped ECU. A custom exhaust system and carbon fibre airbox also help raise output to 408bhp and the power is delivered through a 6-speed manual gearbox with limited-slip differential. Other desirable options included as standard were the PCCB ceramic brakes and PASM sports suspension.
Offered here directly from a private collection of carefully sourced special cars is Sport Classic number 129/250 which to date has covered just 4,122 miles. This low mileage is supported by a full Porsche main agent service history, the most recent at Porsche Centre Leeds, August 2020 indicating 4,118 with a full inspection report on file. This beautifully well-preserved example is supplied with the original Porsche book-pack, spare keys, tracker fobs, smart charger and fitted Sport Classic car cover.
This collectable modern classic Porsche was once the property of a prominent young celebrity and the ‘irresistible’ specification just screams ‘take me home’. Rarely do these Sport Classics come to market in such fine order and values are tipped to go only in ‘One Direction’.
