We present for sale this superb 996 Carrera 4 Coupe finished in stunning in Arctic Silver with contrasting Metropol Blue leather interior. With very sensible mileage, a nice spec, and good service history this car offers superb value for money and would be a perfect introduction to 911 ownership.
This example car presents beautifully as the photographs show. The Arctic Silver bodywork is virtually blemish free with nothing more than a few stone chips if you look very closely and the car retains its original Carrera 4 features such as the smoked front indicators and silver brake callipers. The car sits on a set of 18’’ Sport Design alloy wheels which set the car off perfectly without spoiling its clean,classic lines.
Inside, the car features Metropol Blue trim which contrasts nicely against the Silver exterior and is less bland than the common black finish and much more palatable than the Grey or Savannah options of the day. The interior follows suit from the exterior with the leather and trim in excellent condition showing minimal signs of wear or use. Again the car retains its original features such as the Becker CDR-22 Radio / CD unit and early model 4 spoke 993 steering wheel which so often have been swapped for later items which don’t suit the car. Other features are the Alcantara headlining and fully Electrically adjustable seats, the driver’s seat also having the 3 position memory option.
Along with the electrically adjustable seats and Tiptronic transmission, this car was optioned with cruise control making this 996 perfect for covering longer distances’ such as European road trips perhaps?!
On the road, the car drives impeccably and the power unit in this example feels extremely spritely for a tiptronic car with no shortage of shove throughout the rev range. Steering, suspension and brakes all feel tight and accurate making this 996 a very pleasant driving experience.
