As life is getting back to some normalcy for me after a long tedious home reno there will be hopefully more time for photo shoots and reviews… Here’s a simple Photo Gallery installment. Sorry, for the limited images, as all the batteries during photo time went dry… Still adjusting to the new surrounding, and getting back to some sort of respectable and maintainable form. That being said, one of the latest efforts from AUTOart is their 1:18 Porsche 911 (991.2) GT2 RS with the optional Weissach package. Here’s the White with Carbon Fibre exterior option.
What is the Weissach Package someone may ask? It is not just about adding my power to an already fast GT2 RS, it is taking away some of the unproductive fat, as there could be anything deemed fat here! Weighing savings come in the form of replacing bits with carbon fibre, such elements as the roof panel, anti-roll bars, front lid and more…
As for the model from AUTOart, it is typical AUTOart execution, nothing more nothing less. Meaning, that usually all the standard elements are none well above the average but pushing limits in these areas isn’t off the charts and world-changing. In short, it’s a very good replica, and one any Porshe fan should add to their collection. Wheels branding is part of the package, and something else the team has noticed more and more from the recent assortment of releases from AUTOart, air valves are found on the wheels. A lovely touch!
Elements of the positive nature include the exterior’s carbon fibre work, it is truly executed well, much better than in past examples from the brand. Most, if not all openings are capped with perforated grilles. This adds to the level of realism of the overall experience. As mentioned, full access is part of the package.
Interior-wise, at first glance all the checkpoints are there, what is missed or not shown in the best of light are the rubber seatbelts and grab handles within the doors – they look poor, a shortcut to the more conventional fabric bits. AUTOart’s imagination is lacking with the dash and supporting cast too, not that it looks like crap, no, it just does not bring any flair with textures or fabric, just too generic for a model at this price point. On a positive note, full flocking and appropriate GT2 RS badging are found. Enjoy the pics!
