Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS British Legends Edition launches

Three Le Mans champions each design red, white and blue 911 Carrera 4 GTS limited British Legends Edition models

The Porsche 911 Carrera 4 GTS British Legends Edition is a car – or rather, three cars – designed to celebrate three Porsche drivers’ victories at the Le Mans 24 hours endurance race.

Richard Attwood, Derek Bell MBE and Nick Tandy have all contributed to the design of the 911 British Legends Edition. Attwood’s 911 is finished in Guards Red and Tandy’s in Carrera White, while Bell’s is Sapphire Blue. The three colours pay homage to the racing livery of each driver’s Le Mans-winning car, while numbered side decals echo the driver’s three racing numbers.

In addition to these champion-inspired colours, each British Legends 911 comes with a Union Flag and a 911 Carrera 4 GTS British Legends Edition motif on the door sills, and this is illuminated in a colour that corresponds to the car’s paint. More heritage is to be found on the Alcantara centre console armrest, which is embossed with the respective driver’s name, and the cars’ B-pillars, which bear one of the three drivers’ names and a further Union Flag.

The three British Legends Edition 911s are more than just aesthetic homages, however. In addition to nostalgic nods, all three variants come with rear-axle steering, PASM adjustable suspension, PDCC active anti-roll bars, upgraded LED headlights and 18-way adjustable sports seats.

Further kit bundled with the British Legends Edition 911 Carrera 4 GTSs includes carbon door panels and dashboard trims, satin-black wing mirrors, an extended rear spoiler, lashings of Alcantara suede-effect fabric, a colour-matched rear engine lid and air vents, auto-dimming mirrors and cruise control.

The Attwood-designed Guards Red 911 is £122,376, while Bell’s Sapphire Blue car and Tandy’s Carrera White 911s are £123,210. The three 911 Carrera 4 GTS British Legends Edition go on sale from 9 October and availability will be “limited”.
