    The Porsche 911 Carrera S Centurion Edition

    The Porsche 911 Carrera S Centurion Edition by American Express

    Membership has its privilege, or so the saying goes. In the case of Hong Kong residents holding the exclusive Centurion card from American Express, that privilege includes the option to purchase an exclusive, special-edition Porsche.To celebrate The Centurion’s 10th anniversary American Express announced a special Porsche 911 Carrera S Centurion Edition in Hong Kong on Monday. The sports car is exclusive to American Express Centurion members and card holders.

    From now until July 31, 2010, Centurion members in Hong Kong can place their order for the Porsche 911 Carrera S Centurion Edition. Only three of its kind will be available. Each Porsche 997 Carrera S is priced at around HK $ 2 million ($ 256,000 or € 210,000). American Express will make a donation to UNICEF for each car sold to support its vital work on children around the world.

    The interior of the limited edition includes black leather, Alcantara and genuine carbon fiber, as well as the “Carrera S Centurion Edition No.1 of 3″ badges on both front door panels and outer door-sill guards in stainless steel “Centurion From American Express” logo. The exterior trim got special edition 19 inch wheels.

    All three feature Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus in a 3.8 liter boxer engine delivering 385hp at 6,500rpm through a seven-speed, paddle-operated automatic double-clutch gearbox, the Porsche-Doppelkupplung (PDK). Equipped with Sport Chromo, the sprint to 100km/h (62mph) is done in just 4.3 seconds, with a maximum top speed of 300km/h (186mph).

     So its basically a black CS that cost triple what any other black CS would cost ... huh.


    Re: The Porsche 911 Carrera S Centurion Edition

    Not any black, but factory matte black 

     

    "The Porsche 911 Carrera S Centurion Edition is distinguished by matte black paint with blacked-out wheels, and an interior decked out in black leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber trim. It also includes the optional Sport Chrono pack and dual-clutch transmission. Throw in some special badges, but that's about the extent of it."

     Ooh factory matte black, the triple price tag is totally justified now Smiley

    Does somebody know how high the UNICEF donation would be ? 100 bucks ? 

    Such offers always leave a bad taste in my mouth, I'm an American Express customer myself but most Amex offers (travel, etc.) are usually much more expensive and really not worth it.

    Maybe if you're a billionaire and don't have much time on your hands (or you just don't care about money), otherwise these offers are just way out of line (and too expensive).

    I expect 11% rebate when I buy a new 997, not a 17% premium on top of the regular price tag.  Smiley

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    silly....just silly.

    Hong Kong has a population of over 6 million people and quite a number of them are very affluent.
    Shouldn't be too difficult for Amex to find just three silly people in there somewhere. Smiley

    lol yeah true. This edition will go unnoticed and i think its cheesy

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: The Porsche 911 Carrera S Centurion Edition

    I used to have the Centurion Card. Except of overpriced services (concierge) and some exclusive events (which most run on times where I dont have time anyway and also are connected to any sales events (i.e. Louis Vuitton Store Openings)). I couldnt find any advantages. And to be honest, many petrol stations and sales stores, dont even accept it, because it is an Amex like any other Amex, too.

    The reputation of Amex is in Europe tremendously bad. Due to high fees, many companys dont accept it.

    Kind of funny - Amex sells a luxury product wihtout having even one store, everything online and direct sale!

     


    Re: The Porsche 911 Carrera S Centurion Edition

    I also gave up on my Centurion after being sick of the fees. Also i get stupid comments from waiters etc sbout it. But anyway, back to this car. People in HK love status, so I am sure the ultimate status symbol like a recognizable Centurion Porsche will appeal.
