China Grey Porsche 911 GT3 RS (Aston Martin Color) Looks Flawless

Can't decide between an Aston Martin and a Porsche? Why not have the latter in the colors of the first? This train of thought might seem a bit odd, but how could it be, when we're here to talk about a 991.2 911 GT3 RS that comes dressed in China Grey?

The said hue is a famous Aston color, being offered across the Gaydon lineup. And while Zuffenhausen's Paint To Sample catalog features a plethora of dedicated shades, it looks like the owner of this Rennsport Neunelfer went for a crossbreed.

However, the British automotive producer's hue doesn't cover the entire surface of the rear-engined coupe. That's because the Weissach Package fitted to the vehicle means the frunk lid and the roof come in carbon.

Well, the dark finish of the wonder material is matched by the wheels, but keep in mind this configuration took the weight reduction all the way, since the 520 horsepower toy we have here also packs the magnesium rims.

Other notable options fitted to the vehicle include the full-LED headlights, along with the bucket seats - the latter are shared with the all-mighty 918 Spyder, remember?

And those banana-colored brake calipers are here to signal the presence of PCCB (Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes) goodies.

In case you're wondering where this Porsche will showcase its Aston Martin color, you should know the beast was recently delivered to Belgium.

As the social media-based Porsche registry that brought this 3RS to our attention notes, this isn't the first China Grey GT Division animal, but it's not like owners of such Porschas should be worried about running into a similar car at the local Cars and Coffee event.

PS: If you feel this is eye candy, here's another example of the sort, namely a 911 GT2 RS that comes in Ferrari's finest (think: Rosso Corsa).

A PTSRS Exclusive: Presenting the first known PTS China Grey (W43) 991.2 GT3 RS, delivered to @carreramotors_porschecentre in Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium. This example sports the Weissach Package, magnesium wheels in satin black, PCCB, LED headlights, and full bucket seats. This is now the third known PTS .2 GT3 RS delivered in Belgium alone - after Olive Green and Aston Martin Racing Green Metallic. Speaking of Aston colors, China Grey is also a well known Aston Martin color, currently available on all cars in its portfolio - paging @astonmartinnewportbeach. On Porsches, it has emerged on a handful of GT cars through PTS, including a GT3 Touring from Dresden, Germany and a 991.1 GT3 RS belonging to one of our friends in Munich. I have yet to see how China Grey compares in person to its more well known flat grey from Ingolstadt. If anyone has seen China and Nardo together in person, please chime in with your impressions below. On that note, many thanks to Julien from Carrera Motors for the exclusive photos of this car. What are your thoughts on this example? #PTSRS
