As far as the exterior goes; this example ’s body was very solid with little to no rust to start with; a perfect base to achieve the result the car now wears. The undercoating was completely scraped off and refinished with new undercoating. The paint was completely redone; the body was completely stripped and rebuild to achieve the ST like wider fenders. The trunk lid was replaced with a longhood made of plastic and a central fuel filler was installed. The front and rear bumper as well as the spoiler are made of GRP and had to be meticulously adapted to the wider body.
The modifications continue underneath the car. The wider ST wheel arches easily accommodate the brand new Fuchs wheels. The 8j wide wheels in front and 9j in the back are fitted with the famous Michelin TB15 racing tires. The 3.2 chassis and suspension was upgraded to turbo specs and was further optimized different torsion bars; Bilstein shock absorbers and Powerflex bushings.
Mechanically; the 6-cylinder naturally aspirated engine turns to life by turning the lightweight key. Engine runs clean and dry. To increase performance, the exhaust system was replaced with a free-flow Friedrich motorsport race exhaust. The original fuel injections was removed and a PMO 48mm set of carburetors was installed to achieve a classic look. Tin work was replaced and new lightweight GFK parts were installed as per factory. Internals were upgraded including sports camshafts; Carillo rods, 3.4 Mahle pistons and cilinders; upgraded springs with titanium locks; high rpm weight balancing; and more ….
To further enhance the car’s performance and in order to bring the performance reliably onto the road, the 915 5-speed gearbox was professionally overhauled and mechanically upgraded by installing a short shift gate shifter and coupler. The clutch is a light weight competition example mated to a Drexler limited-slip differential for higher cornering speeds. Stopping power comes from factory 964 brake calipers and Pagid brake pads.
The car’s interior is very classy, wearing a beautiful rear roll cage and cross bars. The black interior was completely re-trimmed and still is in exceptionally good condition. The seats are a pair of BF Torino bucket seats with pepita inserts; offering a snug fit and classic finish. A lovely pair of Schroth racing harnesses offer security. The Momo steering wheel – with quick release – is connected to a rebuild steering rack; the lovely short shifter with balsa wood gear knob are within easy reach. Gauges are rebuild and a Stack ST430 rev counter was installed including shift light. A racing led fog light was installed and can be used as a fog or 3d braking light. The Heuer chronometers are the finishing touch to this lovely interior.
Furthermore there’s an extended fire extinguisher in the interior as well as the engine bay and of course the battery and engine kill switch.
With its amazing Martini design, the car is sure to make heads turn. It is a car that creates a pure and thrilling driving experience; a true thoroughbred to be tamed. This 911’s sole purpose is to be driven spiritedly and exercised to its full potential: on back roads or on your local race track.
All stickers can be removed but of course the wide arches and sports exhaust won’t turn it in a subtle car…
