The annoying thing with these special\limited editions is that that it's unlikely we will ever get to see them in the flesh. They will just end up in storage somewhere. _________________ Current: 2009 997.2 C2S

Nigel, in this case, I see that as entirely positive.

at 500 units will be interesting to see if they sky rocket in value like the more track focused GT and R models.......you do get a watch and luggage though which offers great value for money.
It absolutely will....look at the Sport Classic which was a run of 250 cars and is mechanically identical to 997 GTS and is firmly north of £300k although the roof, duck tail etc were all unique.
For those of you that don't like the gold it's available in about six colours black, red, grey etc still with the stripes. Although I imagine the gold is the one you want if you're going to flip a deliver mileage car in three years time. _________________ 997 GTS Manual

So, if the yellow launch colour does not take your fancy they are doing it in agate grey or Carrera white at no extra cost.......or at an extra cost you can have graphite blue, black or guards red.
Slightly odd to charge for black but not white or grey..........I'll worry about this further when I get a build slot and 180 grand. _________________ 993 C2

What does everyone think of it?
Looks like a cracker (by that I meant the subtle colours, not the gold!), but of course, at 500 built worldwide, I expect they'll never be seen on the roads... _________________ 996 C4s (Gone)

Sorry, but too blingy for me. _________________ 991 Gen 2 GT3 Racing Yellow

Saw one of these at the weekend in Ballater.
Was the grey colour option which looked good, had the gold pinstriping on the wheels and it actually looked okay. _________________ 1999 C2 Coupe - http://911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=124107
