The Porsche 911 GT3 is not the most overt sports car out there, but the following example registered in Texas is bound to turn just as many heads as any Ferrari, Lamborghini, or McLaren.
This particular 911 GT3 was recently modified by the guys over at ADV.1 Wheels and fitted with a pair of wheels dubbed the ADV5.0 Track Spec CS Series. The rims have an eye-catching design but, unfortunately, we don’t think they suit the Porsche very well as the gold finish clashes with the Acid Green paint. Throw on a set of silver or black wheels and this could easily be one of the most stylish 911s on U.S. roads.
A look at the 911 GT3 configurator will tell you that the German sports car isn’t offered as standard with Acid Green, meaning buyers have to go through the company’s Paint to Sample program to select this color. This is not the first one we’ve seen, but there probably aren’t that many in existence.
This hue is significantly brighter than any other green we’ve seen offered from other exotic car manufacturers, including Lamborghini – and that’s quite a feat. Back in 2016, your truly happened to come across one of just two Acid Green Porsche 918 Spyders on Earth and can confirm that capturing the color accurately on a camera is virtually impossible. These images do give you quite a good idea of what it looks like in person, though.
We would argue that the current GT3 is the most driver-focused 911 currently on sale, alongside the new Speedster. Sure, the GT3 RS may be lighter, more powerful and faster, but it cannot be purchased with a six-speed manual transmission, which robs it that final level of ultimate driver connection.
