When I saw those wheels, the phrase “jumped the shark” came to mind.

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.

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.

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.

Not for me .................

Ill await a slot for a GT4 RS ............ and be happy at that ...............

Its nice in a 70's way , but I agree , these will go East, where the target must be ....Dubai , Singapore, KL, China.......... cant see many of these in the 911UK ranks ...!!

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...

It is a little bit Dukes of Hazard but if they were being given away I'd take one.

I think these two were separated at birth Wink - you must admit, there are a number of similarities...

Good video of the "Exclusive Treatment"


Open Youtube Page



During the interior shots I noticed what looked like an 80's tape cassette underneath the PCM??

What is it Question
