PORSCHE 911 3.0 RSR for sale!

Beginning life as a German supplied ’73 Carrera 2.7 MFI, this spectacular RSR was used on the road before finding its way into the UK in 1982. There is extensive history spread over 2 large files after arrival into the UK with visits to Neil Bainbridge and Autofarm amongst myriad works and servicing carried out with other specialists including Charles Ivey. The first UK owner would hold on to the car for an incredible 17 years before sale to Nick Moss in the early millennium; a passionate Porsche enthusiast who embarked a project he didn’t think he would start; “What started in June 2001 as a gearbox change due to a weak syncro on 2nd gear led to a complete engine strip when I found a broken barrel stud. One thing led to another as the end of summer approached and I decided to carry out a complete restoration”

EXTERIOR
Refinished in a period correct coat of Mexico Blue this RSR looks absolutely sensational, with the vivid blue and custom white livery it amplifies the wide hips and squat stance that make up that renowned athletic form. With no visible stone chips or scuff marks to note the car looks factory fresh with genuine RSR front and rear bumpers, rear arches and ‘tea tray’ spoiler the car looks like it’s ready to be revealed as a new entrant at Le Mans in-period.

Being FIA compliant, this extreme track toy is ready to dominate any race in its class as an Appendix K build.

INTERIOR
Focused is the word to describe upon climbing aboard this track special, nestling down into a low slung Recaro bucket seat with the familiar 5 dial arrangement in front. In line with FIA regulations a Sabelt 5 point harness and a fire extinguisher are equipped to ensure everything is appropriate for scrutineering. Overall the cabin presents in excellent condition with the seat showing no wear or fraying and dash top free from cracks or distortion.

During the restoration process the bare bone interior was giving a new lick of paint and protection from rust and corrosion, built to the same specification as the 70’s race car.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This mighty RSR engine develops 350bhp at the rear wheels alongside a kerb weight of 940kg; an impressive power to weight ratio that ensured the car would dominate the race calendar during the 70’s. Drivetrain is provided by a 915 5 speed gearbox, an internally mounted oil pump for better lubrication and a limited slip differential with shorter ramp ratios. Further genuine parts were used to finish the engine build including Genuine RSR oil tank, RSR Fuel injection pump, Oil filter and Fuel pumps.

Built on the base of an original 1974 2.7 MFI, significantly this example has the correct Torsion tube reinforcements as per the original 3.0 RSR builds.

Turning the key reveals the sum of the vast mechanical upgrades, with the noise from the Genuine RSR exhaust system roaring through the cabin as the revs build to create a raucous and riveting driving machine.
