A very rare example that has never been raced, never been driven and is described as the most original and untouched 1993 #Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.8 on the planet is coming to RM Sotheby's #RMItaly auction on 27th May.

The Virtually “brand-new” RSR's exterior shows signs of being parked up for almost 30 years but the interior looks immaculate. The extremely rare example has everything any die-hard Porsche fanatic could ever dream of, including its factory-applied Cosmoline.

The car was special-ordered from new and delivered with numerous luxury add-ons not ordinarily found on a fully raced-prepared Carrera RSR, it has just 10 kilometres on the clock.

The 911 Carrera RS was introduced by Porsche in 1992, and it was developed specifically for the European market as a lightweight, track-ready version of the Carrera 2. Whilst the RS did not look significantly different from the other 911 models, engineers in Weissach utilised the simple and time-honoured tradition of “reduce weight, add power” to create the most dynamic 911 since the original Carrera RS of 1973.

The Carrera RS retained the 3.6-litre engine, albeit boosted in maximum output to 260bhp, but for the following Carrera RS '3.8', the bore size was increased by 2mm for a capacity of 3,746cc. Maximum power went up to 300bhp and this M64/04 engine was installed in a wider, Turbo-style body, also used for the RSR competition version. It is estimated that only 55 of these 3.8-litre cars were made.

In 2014 an RSR that was raced in a few events sold for £449,500 at Bonham's auction house, so you can expect this car to fetch a pretty penny when it goes under the hammer.
