NO RESERVE: 2006 PORSCHE CARRERA GT

KEY FACTS

  • Among the last examples built, this Carrera GT also boasts a unique factory specification and very low mileage.
  • Its engine is a race-bred 5.7-litre naturally aspirated V10, producing up to 604bhp, driving the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.
  • Last serviced in 2019 by Porsche Centre Stuttgart, this was a major maintenance visit that also included four new tyres, and it has covered only 300 km since.
  • A German delivery car, this Carrera GT was imported to the UK and re-registered in February 2021.

EQUIPMENT AND OPTIONS

  • While already finished in the rare hue of Fayence Yellow, this Carrera GT was further enhanced by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur options, which produced a truly bespoke example.
  • The special features include extended leather trim for the instrument panel cover and front section, door openers, centre console, and the gear shifter. Throughout the cabin, special yellow decorative stitching was also added. The car was also fitted with individual floor mats, a thicker steering wheel rim with the same leather and yellow stitching, and with black painted wheels.
  • Factory options included manual air-conditioning, an uprated battery, Becker Online Pro stereo system, and a full luggage set in matching Dark Grey natural leather.
  • Accompanying the car are all of the original books, German paperwork, a copy of the original invoice, brochure, the tool kit, and a factory-supplied car cover.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • In June 2019 at 6,191 km, this Carrera GT received a major service at Porsche Centre Stuttgart, at a total cost of just under €12,000. This included an engine oil and filter change, new ignition coils, spark plugs, brake fluid, and gearbox oil. The thermostat was also replaced, along with the air filters and poly-rib drive belts. Four new N0-rated Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres were fitted, which were co-developed by Porsche and Michelin to improve the car’s handling and stability over the original factory tyres.
