KEY FACTS

  • A handsome low-mileage, example of the 996-generation 911 Turbo, featuring the highly sought-after ‘X50’ Performance Package and a lesser-seen manual transmission.
  • It is powered by a 3.6-litre twin-turbocharged ‘Mezger’ flat-six engine with uprated K24 turbochargers, delivering 444bhp to all four wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox.
  • This example has been with its current owner for the past five years, and is finished in a classic silver-on-black colour scheme.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • Riding on its original 18-inch ‘Turbo Twist’ alloy wheels with red callipers, this 911 is finished in Arctic Silver metallic over a black leather-trimmed cabin with aluminium accents on the transmission tunnel and centre console.
  • The car is equipped with the optional X50 Performance Package, which includes larger K24 turbochargers and intercoolers, a revised ECU and a quad-pipe exhaust, boosting the engine’s output from 414 to 444bhp.
  • Also included in the specification is a premium Bose sound system, xenon headlights, an Alcantara headlining, an electrically operated sunroof, electrically operated front seats with two-position driver’s memory, dual zone climate control, and a rear wiper.
