    997 GT3 RS Mk2 - Colour-to-sample

    Ok maybe it's just me but I am really not excited about spending circa £110,000 on an RS when the three colours just don't float my boat.

    However news from Germany is that they have virtually finalised on the idea of offering colour-to-sample. Production of the RS starts in November 2009 and colour-to-sample should be offered 3 months later, so early 2010. That's also assuming that not all of the production run has been sold!

    I know the colours I'd go for (Riviera Blue with Black wheels) but given a blank cheque and colour to sample what would YOU specify?


    Re: 997 GT3 RS Mk2 - Colour-to-sample

    Zermatt Silver with Red wheels/trim.  Here is a sample of the paint:

    Zermatt Silver...I love it   Smiley


    Re: 997 GT3 RS Mk2 - Colour-to-sample

    Grant, when the last MY this color was avail ?

    it looks lighter/brighter that artic silver, and no blue like polar.

    can you compare it to a color out in production today ?

    thx


    Re: 997 GT3 RS Mk2 - Colour-to-sample

     It's much more vivid and metallic than Artic or Polar - not sure of last year offered - in the mid 90's?

    I desperately wanted a signal yellow 914 but my father bought a sand beige 911T. It was 1973 and I was 16.

    I just love all the expressive 70s colours (e.g. Blutorange-tangerine, Viperngrün-emerald etc.) but would probably spec one in riviera as well. In fact, I hope that his option will be available soon otherwise it will come in white without the stickers. Smiley

    I think the titanium coloured standard GT3 wheels look great, in particular on a Riviera blue car, much better than black wheels.

    OB

    Had a Zermatt Silver car many years ago for a very short time - very bland - never figured out what I was thinking when I bought a beige sports car.
