The exciting car offered here is an example of one of the rarest of Porsche 911 Type 993 variants: the Carrera RS Clubsport with the 3.8-liter engine, which was built for homologation in FIA GT2 events. It is one of only seven right-hand-drive Clubsports believed sold new in the U.K.

One of the designated C16 U.K.-market cars, this ultra-rare right-hand-drive Clubsport was purchased by the current vendor, a Porsche enthusiast and collector, in 2010, having been delivered new via Lancaster Porsche in Colchester on January 5, 1996. The car’s history showed that it had been serviced annually and used sparingly, covering only a few thousand miles each year. Upon acquisition, the car was treated to a full service by Porsche specialists Dove House Motor Company, which included fresh fluids, new brake pads and a set of Michelin Cup tires. It has been serviced annually by Dove House ever since, and comes with its original and fully stamped service booklet. The most recent service was carried out in May 2016 at 23,677 miles.
