911 Porsche World - - News And Views -

Three Bri­tish driv­ers, each Le Mans win­ners be­hind the wheel of a works Porsche, are be­ing cel­e­brated with their own unique ver­sion of the 911 Car­rera 4 GTS. The Bri­tish Leg­ends Edi­tion 911s, as they are known, are avail­able to buy as limited-run spe­cials with spe­cial liv­er­ies and a hefty spec list.

The new models have been de­signed with in­put from all three driv­ers and fea­ture liv­er­ies and race num­bers in­spired by their re­spec­tive com­pe­ti­tion cars. Namely, that's Richard Attwood (win­ner 1970), Derek Bell MBE (win­ner 1981, 1982, 1986, 1987), and Nick Tandy (win­ner 2015). The car has been de­vel­oped by Porsche Cars GB to­gether with Porsche Ex­clu­sive Man­u­fak­tur at the com­pany head­quar­ters in Stuttgart, Ger­many. A Union Jack sym­bol com­bined with the driver’s sig­na­ture lo­cated on the B-pil­lar is a fur­ther mo­tor­sport-in­spired leit­mo­tif.

As for the spec, it's mega. Start with the lat­est Car­rera 4 GTS. That means 450hp, all-wheel drive and per­for­mance well into the sub-four-sec­ond-to-60mph cat­e­gory. Then add rear-axle steer­ing and Sport PASM in­clud­ing Porsche Dy­namic Chas­sis Con­trol (PDCC) to the chas­sis. In­side, you get car­bon-fi­bre door sills with Union Jack mo­tifs, door, dash­board and cen­tre con­sole trim in car­bon-fi­bre, lash­ings of Al­can­tara, 18-way adap­tive sports seats and, well, much more.

On the out­side, there's that be­spoke liv­ery along with LED head­lights with Porsche Dy­namic Light Sys­tem Plus along with the Sport­de­sign aero pack­age fea­tur­ing an ex­tended rear spoiler. And the dam­age associated with that lit­tle lot? It starts at £122,376 for the Guards Red ver­sion. The Sap­phire Blue and Car­rera White al­ter­na­tives clock in at £123,210.

Bri­tish Leg­ends Edi­tion 911s cel­e­brate the Le Mans win­ning suc­cess of Richard Attwood, Derek Bell and Nick Tandy. Pic­tured is the Attwood in­spired C4 GTS along­side his 1970 Le Mans win­ning 917
