    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    looks like it might be Mexico Blue.

     I'm really pretty sure it's Riviera (Mexico is close though).  I think the same color car was in this German magazine test (might even be the same press car) and under the options it shows Riviera Blau.  BTW, the photo below doesn't capture the color well at all - in the mag, it looks like the video car:

    Yes, indeed. It´s the same car as used in SA´s Supertest.

    Thanks Achim

    the new GT3 in riviera blue looks stunning!!

    GT3 RS Mk2 must be RIVIERA blue like this,NOT the other blue!

    don't know why they don't see a thing like this...

    997 TT, what a car/che'mmmmmaghena!!!

    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    So much abuse, I'm not sure if any car could handle that, very reliable.

    Thank you for sharing...

    question !!  is this reviera blue similar to the 9ff GT2 Gulf blue,  9ff GT2 gulf is a bit brighter than gulf blue...

    Indeed impressive to see, covering the use of both DSF and SportAuto´s test routines...

    9ff´s GT2 is covered in foil, it´s not painted. However, Gulf blue (you probably know the historical reference) seems to be a lighter shade of blue than Riviera.

    thanks Ferdie,


    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    Thanks guys,

    Riveria is now my fav GT3 colour. Its perfect inbetween classic and racing IMHO. It doesn't screen look at me, but it still stands out enough!!

    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    I believe the one in the magazine page above is Maritime Blue. Not Riviera, not Mexico.

    I agree that the magazine pic looks like Maritime in this link, but that is just a photographic distortion effect.  If it were Maritime Blue, the option would've said "Maritim Blau" without the "e", rather than "Riviera Blau"...

     Ha! I stand corrected. Obviously, I had not read the options list. Funny that the reproduction distortion resulted in what looks like a ringer for Maritime blue...


    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    I finally saw the video Smiley ...what a control by Simon...the rally-technique at the end of the video...wow Smiley

    I still cannot view the video, any advice?


    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    Great video !!!

    I love the brake test from 312k.

    I wonder how many rear tyres they got through for that report :) 


    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    Trip if you are using Firefox try  Internet Explorer,it worked for me.


    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    Thanks for sharing !

    Some months ago I watched his video of the 997.1 GT3 RS and loved it...


    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    Trip if you use Firefox and Adblock you have to deactivate the latter. 


    Re: Patrick Simon drives the GT3 3.8

    Thanks guys I finally got it to work. What a car!!
