Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS ‘British Legends Edition’ launched

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS ‘British Legends Edition’ launched Classic and Performance Car

A special edition Porsche 911 GTS has been launched, celebrating the Porsche Le Mans successes of UK drivers Richard Attwood, Derek Bell MBE and Nick Tandy.


Porsche is the most successful manufacturer to ever race at Le Mans, claiming its 19th overall victory earlier this year, and the company has announced a special edition 911 to honour three UK drivers – Richard Attwood, Derek Bell MBE and Nick Tandy – who have all played a part in attaining that record. 
 
Based on the 911 Carrera 4 GTS, each of the three different versions, Guards Red,  Sapphire Blue Metallic and Carrara White Metallic, feature colour schemes and decals inspired by each of the drivers’ Le Mans winning machinery. 
 
Powered by the same 444bhp turbocharged 3.0-litre flat-six engine as the regular GTS, the British Legends Edition are fitted with a number of extra options. The Rear-wheel steering, Sport PASM chassis and LED headlights can all be added to a regular GTS model, but it’s the cosmetic treatment that’s unique to the British Legends Edition.

1970 Le Mans winner Richard Attwood’s Guards Red car mimics the red and white 917, while Derek Bell’s takes inspiration from the 1982 ‘Rothmans Blue’ Porsche 956. Nick Tandy, who was behind the wheel of the winning Porsche 919 Hybrid at this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours, chose a white and black colour scheme just like that of his 919.
 
Inside all three models, there is a black leather and Alcantara interior with a special embossed centre armrest. Union flag badges on the B-pillar and the sill kick plates also mark out this special model.
 
All three can be had with either seven-speed manual, or optional PDK transmission. Prices start from £122,376 for Guards Red edition, while the other two start at £123,210 accounting for the slightly more expensive metallic paint.
