Do we think the big D on the windscreen means Cat D ?

No, it's a "Cat U" on the HPI system (uncategorised due to it occurring on track)

A lot of obsession with this car.

Pictures look worse than the actual car/damage but make a more sensationalist story.

The PU units were removed for inspection as were the lights. In the above pics the wheels of course are also removed.

Actual damage was just left front wing (superficial) and left rear. Zero damage at dead on front, back, sides, or any other panel. The right rear corner (exposed in the pics) and exhaust bits and valance area are completely untouched / undamaged but with the panels off deceptively look like part of the damage. The bonnet is not shut properly in the pics and was undamaged.

Yes it will be a repaired car but the actual impact was probably not the worst out there (sideways impact and not head on).

I'm not connected to the repair or sale of the car - but was in it when it happened Smile

Damange pics can be seen on the PH GT3 and RS avoidance thread here: https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=230&t=1370274&i=140

It would need to be a good bit cheaper as trying to sell it in future would be a nightmare with 99.9% being put off by Googling 996 GT3 LX53NRN.

Agree it's been plastered everywhere now.

Only one of those pics (the first of the left rear corner) actually shows the damage. The rest are undamaged but panels and lights have been removed for inspection purposes and looks like were not replaced (think lights are in the boot, PU units on separate stand)

Yep - that corner had the main impact. The PU units and rear lights were on the car but removed to inspect behind it. The exhaust box (think removed in the pic?) was damaged, plus some of the suspension componentry. Plus the bootlid where the corner pushed against it. The RS wing (which was a copy) flat plane broke apart.

Don't know if it needed jig work - we suspected it might, but the person who repaired it seemed to suggest it didn't in a post somewhere.

Anyway, buyer should inspect and satisfy themselves on price/condition - but I do not think it was a huge impact (relatively speaking of course)

Think they are sitting somewhere in the grass at Tiergarten!
I was surprised they brought the top part over...

clearly the market is already having as a dip as the dealer has slashed off £10k off the price to now a mere £74,995, but still £00's overpriced

which might explain the cut price top speed....


381bhp and only a 0-60 mph in 4.5secs, not bad for a 14 year old car

At the price I'd buy it back all day long. Even if the repair is not top quality I would be able to justify additional to address that.

I just bought another lower mileage Guards Red clubsport and it was not far off double that!

I may dig out the track pictures straight after and it really is not 'that bad'

Personally even at the asking price it is already discounted against a straight Guards Red clubsport. I hounded 4-5 GR clubsport owners and no one was interested in selling anywhere in the eighties even. Maybe given the media coverage it needs to be a bit lower still. But that's in a negotiation discussion

Just a thought, but if the damage was only light and the chassis is straight, the seller could do worse than get a full CG geo check - might answer a few questions perhaps?
