In our line of business with the products we offer, we get to not only ship our parts all around the world, we also get to work with some great people on their fantastic builds, and just recently our customer Yann Boivin who resides in Dubai completed his stunning RSR Inspired 997 Turbo.
Yann made contact with us mid part of 2016 about building a wide body Porsche 997, based on his Turbo with his inspiration coming not just from the race series Porsche GT3 RSR, but the VAD RSR Turbo 650R build we did in 2013, although It a personal build we like to forget about, because it wasn’t built to a standard we have always strived for, the paint work wasn’t the best, we used a very cheap, poor quality FRP RSR kit, the fit was appalling, and the wheel build was to extreme, with our initial idea was to build a race looking Porsche 997 RSR, we build a stance cambered RSR, modifying the front bumper that gave the car a silly looking smile, if we had our time over again building an RSR turbo, it would be done totally different, as we will showcase when we start to construct our new Porsche 997 build, the GT3R bi-turbo, but we will cover that in another post when our build starts.
Yann had a few niggles along the way, mainly with the body shop he chose, but with a new recommendation and his vison and determination still in full flow, his dream build has now hit the street, and its one very special looking 997 Turbo.
His wheel choice from day one was to fit our VAD VF1 3 piece forged concave wheels as seen on our original demo, but they wouldn’t be as extreme, and they would be a completely tyre set up and colour combo, with Matte brushed bronze, with brushed silver hardware, 10x20 > 265/30R20 front and 13x20 > 345/25R20 rear sitting on custom coilover suspension, the finish and colour of the wheel suit the beautiful Metallic Khaki green to absolute perfection.
We have a full range of professional photos heading our way over the next few weeks, so check back in for details as they will be uploaded to our blog and VAD fitted vehicle gallery.
