“It started back in April 2010 when I was at the Porsche Centre in Aberdeen. I saw an Aqua Blue & Gold Gen II GT3 RS having its PDI carried out and I thought it was stunning. I never thought that I would someday be the owner of a car like it but I am now! The search for my own car started properly in September 2013, with the following criteria; I wanted a blue and gold car, with PCCB (Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes) and it had to have the Front Axle Ride-Height Lift System. I didn’t want a car that had been tracked (although that’s essentially what they were built for) and I wanted a low mileage car. This is where Clark’s brother’s life changed; he spent the next seven months on just about every internet forum in the UK trying to find me a car. Very early on in the search he did locate a blue and gold car but when I offered the owner his full asking price he decided that he wanted to keep it. The same happened with a white and red one some months later, but ultimately the colour scheme would have been a bit of a compromise, so in hindsight I’m glad my offer wasn’t accepted.
During the search Clark’s brother only uncovered four blue and gold cars, so when this one came up last month it was a case of get it bought at all costs. According to Porsche there were only 134 cars brought in to the UK; they haven’t been able to advise me of the number in each colour scheme but as there were only six options there may be no more than 22 blue and gold cars in the UK (assuming they were delivered in equal numbers). However, having only come across four blue and gold cars in the course of the search, I think it’s a lot less; it certainly seemed to me that a far greater number of white and grey cars were available. I purchased the car from the first owner down in Surrey and, like Clark did with his GT3, I had Rob from Supercar Detailing inspect the car prior to purchase. Once the deal was done I employed Car Transport Scotland to bring the car up to the Polished Bliss studio (in a covered transporter), where it then spent two weeks being pampered. It has less than 2,500 miles on the clock and just about every optional extra that I would have chosen had I bought it from new. I haven’t had the chance to drive it much yet, but based on the drive home I can already confirm that it’s rather fast and makes a hell of a noise!”
