5,733 cc mid-mounted DOHC V-10 engine, 605 HP, six-speed manual gearbox in rear transaxle, front and rear independent pushrod-activated coil-over suspension, hydraulic four-wheel ceramic composite disc brakes; wheelbase: 107.5"



Throughout its storied history, Porsche blessed the motoring world with many homologation specials engineered to meet international competition requirements while remaining perfectly adaptable and legal for road use. The stunning Carrera GT supercar traces its roots as the planned successor to the mighty 911 GT1 racecar of the late 1990s, with development commencing in 1999. While FIA rule changes frustrated its endurance-racing plans for the new car, Porsche forged ahead with production nonetheless and when production ended in May 2006, some 1,270 of the highly anticipated Carrera GTs were built at the new Porsche facility in Leipzig, Germany. Of those, just 604 were destined for America’s hungry ‘supercar’ market.
Powered by a mid-mounted 5.7-liter V-10 engine developing 605 factory-rated horsepower, the Carrera GT delivers astounding, perhaps monstrous, performance. Acceleration from rest to 60 mph is achieved in just 3.8 seconds, with the 100-mph mark shattered in less than 7.0 seconds, en route to a top speed of 205 mph. While never intended for the dragstrip, the Carrera GT can also deliver remarkable 11.4-second elapsed times. Mated to the race-bred engine is a traditional six-speed manual gearbox and the simple yet elegant beech-wood gearshift knob (standard), pays silent homage to the Le Mans-conquering Porsche 917 racecars of years past.
Technical specifications remain stunning today. A carbon-fiber monocoque and sub-frame structure were produced and assembled by the ATR Composites Group in Italy. Both the clutch and brake components employ ceramic composite materials, combining strength and lightness. Even the Carrera GT’s massive 19- and 20-inch wheels are made from ultra-lightweight forged magnesium. Similar to other contemporary Porsche models, an automated rear wing deploys above 70 mph, providing additional downforce and stability at speed. The Carrera GT interior is an exemplar of purposeful luxury, and safety features include front and side-impact airbags as well as anti-lock brakes. The Carrera GT proved a major success for Porsche, and perhaps MotorWeek host John Davis summed it up best: “The Carrera GT is the best motivation to get rich that we’ve ever driven.”
One of just 604 original U.S.-delivery Carrera GTs, this stunning example was factory-supplied in striking optional GT Silver Metallic (Code U2) over Dark Grey all-leather seats. Factory-original features and options are many, including the Code 2427 Carrera GT Custom Tailoring, 501 Car Cover, 572 Air Conditioning, 579 Fitted Luggage Set in Dark Grey, 690 Porsche Online Pro CD Radio DZ, GAC Carbon Fiber Steering Wheel ($3630 cost), GAD Carbon Fiber Handbrake ($900 cost), GBR Floor Mats ($580 cost), Z2482 GT Seat Belts in Deviating Color ($1,250 cost), and Z2500 Interior Stitching in Deviating Color ($2950 cost). Offered from a demanding and discerning Consignor with the knowledge and means to insist on only the best in automobiles, this U.S.-specification Porsche supercar, this Carrera GT is exceedingly well maintained and has seen only 4,264 miles of use at the time of cataloguing. Only an approximate 150 of the total miles have been accumulated under the Consignor’s tenure with the car. An investment-grade modern Porsche and an unqualified icon in its own time, this exceptionally well optioned Carrera GT is described by the Consignor as “…a race car for the street and one of the most uncompromising, competition-bred high-performance cars I have ever driven.” Simply impressive throughout, this very highly equipped example is a top-quality example and worthy of the finest collections – bar none.
