This Porsche 911 RSR Recreation is up for sale at a million pound bargain
Who doesn’t like anything which comes at a million-pound bargain price! More so, if the thing in question is a Porsche. Even more so, if it’s a 1975 911 which also happened to race at Le Mans. Erm... to be honest, it’s not that exact car but something similar built with the exacting standards.
Making its public debut at the upcoming Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, online platform The Market will be exhibiting this - the Porsche 911 RSR Recreation. A freshly built imitation attempt of the ‘75 Le Mans racer in one of the most iconic racing liveries of the ’70s.
The car started in life as an American market 1977 Porsche 911. It then had to be stripped out to its bare shell only to be reassembled in the guise of the original 911 RSR with its striking green paintwork, coloured stripes and Vaillant sponsorship livery.
Exacting standards reflect under the hood as this RSR Recreation comes equipped with a 3.6-litre twin-spark ‘964’ engine, good for around 260hp. More RSR-spec components such as the coil-over suspension and the 930 Turbo brakes can be found. It also features the Type 915 gearbox which is accompanied by a Quaife limited-slip differential, and a bespoke exhaust system.
Even on the inside, it features a genuine Porsche Momo steering wheel with a quick-release hub, the dashboard is covered in black Alcantara, and the passengers are strapped to the Cobra Evolution S high-back racing bucket seat with the help of TRS harnesses.
“With original 911 & 934 RSRs reaching seven-figure prices today, this exacting recreation is the closest that many can get to a car which evokes the spirit of one of the most desirable Porsches ever built,” comments Tristan Judge, director, The Market.
The car will be put up on display for all three days of the Classic Motor Show (8-10 November). If you dig this duplicate darling and are willing to bet on this bargain, the car will be made available at on The Market’s online auction platform with an estimate of £55,000 to £85,000 ($71,000 to $1,10,000) from 11th November.
