    Cool - Nurburgring laps?

     

    Maybe. Have to be in Cannes by July 4th though

    Tourist Days on 29th, 30th, 1st...

    You could do break-in laps under 5,000 rpm and still be quick enough to scare yourself Smiley

    Kobalt:

    Gold on black (in this case) looks really good. But I can not help but wonder if the gold on this picture has been enhanced. My recall of it from Goodwood was that the golden wheels was not that much gold. After all it is called White Gold.

    Anyhow: it still will look really good even if it is a bit lesser goldish imho.

     

    yes, the color has been tweaked for sure in the black pic.

    Here is one that's closer to the real gold color on the wheels from Goodwood.

    Champagne colour more or less.

    I know about the exclusive series .The black does hide much of the car styling and even the wing is not so noticeable. Nick likes to be stealth but this will make his car much more noticeable. I honestly don't have a problem with the wheels but I found them to be incongruent with Nick's philosophy. Its just not who he is. That said, I am liking Nick's break out to be more flamboyant.indecision

     

    The 3 GT2RSs that I know the config of locally are white, white, and mine.

    Both white cars ordered black wheels. Initially with the black wheels I was going for the Darth Vader look. 

    But for some reason I do wanted the gold wheels also, for a little bit of contrast and homage to the last GT2RS. Silver is out as I really hated silver wheels.

    Nick, the more realistic picture of the wheels is much better. However, I fear a black exterior will make them look much more gold. Think music entertainment celebrities.

    Stick with the gold. You need an outlier in your garage of cars.kiss

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    I do love the look of the black wheels on the gold, but it may help to have some other very minor details in gold as well?
    Maybe the edges of the naca ducts in the front bonnet? Or the wing stands? (Might be overdoing it again though... on the other hand, I think it's easier to have them painted black afterward than to have them painted gold...)

    For whatever reason I like the exclusive TT in that color combination. Odd but it works especially on a very exclusive car.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    IMO: The white gold colored rims takes the edge of the callipers yellow color so the yellow callipers works rather well with a lot of the colors that you can get the GT2RS in.

    Can you order Black brakes calipers ?

     

    Still waiting on confirmation from Dr. Porsche that he would adopt me so I can have a Porsche last name just so I can have PTS callipers.

    The black calliper is a secret, by invitation only option, cost is 20k US, cause I know someone that got it. Sort of like colour to sample leather lined rear shelf and front trunk on a 911R, which I also know someone that has them.

    True. But the black painted ones will not be 'factory', and not on the bill of sales.

    The yellow R on my 911R wasn't factory also, but at least I got them to install the badge onto the car AT Leipzig before I even sign the papers, took pictures and I can for sure say it was the only 911R DELIVERED by Porsche with the yellow R.

    Re: OFFICIAL: 911 GT2 RS (2017)

    EVERYONE ordering a GT2 RS with Weissach package seemes to order PTS wich has greated a big problem in production i.e extrem delays. This is the fourth Porsche I’ve ordered that’s not going to meet the promised delivery date. What happened to German “ordnung”? mail

    If you really want to, this could be fixed. Smashed a cup car in Dubai a week ago when some shit head Ferrari  dude thought it was a good idea to change lane in mid corner when I was passing. Wall to my right and a Ferrari coming from the left. Got airborne and the car was just totally shit when it stopped. First session of the day. Took five mechanics 7 hours to replace pretty much everything and have the car ready to for me to drive the last session of the day (sorry to say, the couldn’t fix my ribs...). 

    Ii wish I could see this kind of commitment from the PAG production line as well, then we wouldn’t have such a fuck up in production dates......smiley
