Merit Partners is pleased to present this very rare and exceptional Carrera GT in Guards red over Dark Grey interior. This car came to us from one of our best long-time clients and is truly a complete car in every way. Starting with the color, red cars are truly one of the rarer colors for Carrera GT’s as only 42 Guards Red cars were produced, by comparison over 600 GT Silver cars were made. This is in fact the only red car we have every represented even with over 40 CGT’s sold. This particular car was well maintained by its former owner but the new owner wanted to have a long term car so we sent the car up to Jimmy Repasi to do not only what was needed for service but address any parts that were due to age out in the near future. In fact, the biggest issue in our opinion in buying a CGT is that over 90% of the cars do not get the necessary service and the cars get more and more expensive to maintain as a result of these items being neglected. In addition to all the required and proactive service that was done, the owner also wanted to improve the car and make it more drivable. With this in mind, Jimmy Repasi installed a fully adjustable KW suspension with a full suspension lifter. To drive a CGT with regular suspension is sublime but to do it with new suspension that is almost 20 years newer and takes advantage of all the advances in technology truly elevates the car to a level significantly better than the original non-adjustable dampers. The addition of a suspension lifter that not only lifts the front end but the entire car allows for worry free driving when entering driveways so that carbon fiber tub can stay well protected and scratch free.
Of course, the after-market enhancements were a bonus but Jimmy made sure to address all the mechanical work needed to ensure this car will be well ahead on service for years to come. Some of those services highlighted are: full engine out service, cam rebuild and replacement, new radiators, rear main seal service, new alternator, full fluid service, ABS pump rebuild, new slave cylinder and power steering lines. There were more items addressed and we can provide the full service records to anyone interested. In total with the suspension and front axle lift, over 85k was spent on this car. Jimmy also took time to address any minor cosmetic issues and do a full engine detail while it was out. Clutch readings were very good and did not require any replacement. Additionally, there is no paintwork or accidents of any kind on this car. Cosmetically, the car is covered completely in PPF film and the exterior paint is excellent. The car will come with a full luggage set, car cover, battery tender, manuals and two keys. In addition to the service work being performed by Jimmy, the car was maintained over the last several years by Hennessy Porsche. The tires are new and even the center lock wheel nuts are brand new. Any potential buyer can purchase this car with the total confidence that he is getting one of the most complete and well serviced cars in the country.
