2005 PORSCHE CARRERA GT:
--GT Silver with Charcoal leather interior, 6,000 miles from new, 6-speed manual transmission, Porsche collector owned.
The Carrera GT is based on pure race engineering. This applies both to the chassis and suspension as well as the normally aspirated engine and the six-speed manual transmission. Powered by a 5.7 liter V10 DOHC engine producing 612 HP using a six-speed manual gear box, the Carrera GT will reach 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and has an estimated top speed of 205 mph. Global production was limited 1,270 examples over a four year period with only 644 allocated to the United States market and 31 to Canada.
The Carrera GT was offered with a limited five-color paint scheme which included Guards Red, Fayence Yellow, Basalt Black, GT Silver Metallic and Seal Grey. Custom colors were later available from the factory. A traditional six-speed manual transmission is the only available transmission option. Paying tribute to the wooden gear knob used in the Porsche 917 Le Mans racer, the same Beachwood gear knob is found within the cockpit of the Carrera GT. In its second year of production, a carbon fiber gear shift knob was also made available. Furthermore, the interior is fitted with soft leather, a Bose audio sound system and a navigation system as standard.
This Carrera GT is in as new condition throughout and with only 6,000 miles from new. It has been maintained at a Porsche franchised dealer and comes with maintenance receipts to date. This particular Carrera GT model represents a superb opportunity to own a special Porsche super-car of the modern era, which may well be the last ever to have a V10 F1 developed engine married to a manual 6-Speed transmission!!
