Porsche first brought the Martini racing livery to the world of road cars for the 918 Spyder. But it proved such as popular option, they have extended it to the GT3 models. We’ve seen a fair few 991 GT3s in these colors, but I think I’m right in saying this is the first Porsche 991 GT3 RS Martini spotted in the wild.
The Martini colors suit the character of the GT3 RS a lot better than the normal GT3, what with the RS being, in essence, a 911 RSR racing car with some cushier seats and air condition. You turn up at any track day with a Porsche 991 GT3 RS Martini, you are instantly the absolute boss of that session, mostly because it’s a ballsy move bringing a rare and expensive cars like the GT3 RS to a track day!
The 2016 GT3 RS is in such demand these days, dealers are said to be putting hefty premiers are the units they had pre-ordered. The base price of this car from the factory is $175K, but it is impossible finding a brand-new one out there for less than 200 grand. And it’s worth in Europe.
And we’re talking about a normal GT3. This Porsche 991 GT3 RS Martini with its fancy paint work and carbon ceramic brakes probably costs an arm and a leg more than an ordinary model. You have seen the fantastic Martini Livery on the Porsche 918 Spyder a lot. But this time we find this prestigious livery design on a Porsche 991 GT3, and we reckon it could spark a debate as to which one looks cooler. Which car rocks the Martini Livery better, the 918 or the GT3?
For us it would be the Porsche 991 GT3 simply because we can at least dream about owning one someday! The 918 is not even a dream car anymore, since they made only 918 of it and they are all sold, which means prices have already doubled from the original one million dollars.
Of course, you could have your car, regardless of what it is, wrapped in the Martini colors. But that would be about the least cool thing you can do. Porsche offers these liveries through their own Exclusive department who is licensed to use them. And they cost a lot, which is why an original Martini Livery from the factory is such a cool option to have.
That said, this livery does make your car stand out in public and will mark you aside as someone who is interested in racing and Motorsport. We’re just saying, there is something slightly nerdy about the whole thing.
