997 GT3 RS Studio Photography

April 30th, 2014

Although this spring has been our busiest on record, we simply had to make the time to detail and photograph this stunning car, as it now belongs to Clark’s dad! The car in question is a 2010 Porsche 911 (997) Gen II GT3 RS in Aqua Blue & Gold (the Gen II model differs from the earlier Gen I model by featuring a larger capacity 3.8 L Mezger flat-six engine producing an extra 35 bhp, giving a total output of 444 bhp). The RS badge, which stands for Renn Sport in German (or Race Sport in English), always excites Porsche enthusiasts, and it’s fair to say that we rather enjoyed getting to work on and photograph this car – it’s simply stunning. If you’d like to find out more about it read on, as Clark’s dad has kindly provided us with the story behind his acquisition of it…

1972 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Replica

May 30th, 2013

Although we’re having another hugely busy spell across all areas of our business, we simply had to make the time to share this car with you; a 1972 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Replica, which came in for an Enhancement Detail. While we have the privilege of working on many outstanding vehicles, this car was a true stand out experience, as it’s the first classic race sport (RS) 911 we’ve seen in our studio. These models, which always quicken the pulses of connoisseurs and collectors alike, are considered by many to be the greatest classic 911s of all time. If you’re in the mood to find out more about this superb replica, and for a little historic storytelling, read on to find out more…

Clark’s GT3 Studio Photography

January 21st, 2013

Having wed last summer and with the patter of tiny feet now increasingly likely, Clark recently did the only sensible thing possible; he sold his Impreza WR1 (into which child seats will easily fit) and bought a 911 (996) GT3 Club Sport (into which they most certainly will not)! All joking aside, it was very much a ‘now or never’ decision, and it has fulfilled his lifelong ambition of owning a 911 (true statement; his first ever ride in a car, shortly after being born, was in the back of father’s 911, and he’s wanted one from as far back as he can remember). Clark being Clark, he obviously took great care with the selection process, and after a few false starts he was contacted by a chap down south whose highly pampered 996 GT3 Club Sport was potentially available. It wasn’t in Speed Yellow or Guard’s Red (Clark’s preferred colours), but after receiving full details about the car and sending a much respected professional detailer (Rob at Supercar Detailing) round to inspect it (the seller was based 500+ miles away!) a deal was done – the car was just too good to miss! Its brief specification is as follows…

Porsche 911 Turbo photo shoot

June 14th, 2010

Last month we were visited by Tim Wallace from Ambient Life, who spent two days with us shooting two Porsche 911 Turbos belonging to two of our clients. This was the highlight of our year so far, and an event we had been looking forward to for a long time. In order to make the shoot as interesting as possible, we tried to incorporate several themes into the imagery. For starters, we chose two iconic models; the air-cooled 993 Turbo, in this case fitted with the extremely rare X50 factory upgrade, and the current water-cooled 997 Turbo. Secondly, we opted to contrast light against dark by choosing a Basalt Black 997 as the second car (the Arctic Silver 993 was the primary car chosen before the details of the shoot were finalised). Thirdly, we decided to shoot on location as well as in our studio, in order to capture some interesting textures and landscapes in the shots. Finally, we chose to shoot out on the open road too, in order to try something new – as far as we know nobody else in the UK has shown off detailing results in such a dynamic way before.
