RCR 917 for sale!

The body and chassis are built by the company RCR located in the USA. This company manufactured replica race cars and built all the race cars used in the film “Ford vs Ferrari” about Carol Shelby.

It has a fiberglass body (like the original), but unlike the fragile small-tube frame of the originals, it shares the same architecture of all RCR cars and has an aluminium monocoque centre (with tube-frame front and rear, to better mimic the original when the nose and tail are removed).

The RCR 917 is even streetable, with a DOT-legal windshield, headlights, and taillights.

Price: EUR 172,500

Details

The 917 was the most powerful sports car ever made at the time. With “over 1200” horsepower (Porsche was coy about the actual power output) available from the twin-turbo, flat-12 variant, it dominated sports car racing for years. It was also the poster child for a car that needed aerodynamic development in its early iterations, only taming the effects of the air at very high speeds late in its development cycle. It was also known for being a little squirrely at speed, in part because of the relatively flexible tube frame chassis.

The original cars that remain are usually too expensive to race in anger, so they are mostly reserved for exhibitions and static displays. But the same gut-wrenching performance – with modern safety additions – can be yours, with the RCR 917.

This 917 has a fiberglass body (like the original)and a Porsche engine and gearbox, but unlike the fragile small-tube frame of the originals, it shares the same architecture of all RCR cars and has an aluminum monocoque center (with tube-frame front and rear, to better mimic the original when the nose and tail are removed). Please see the link for more pictures of it in the gallery.

The RCR 917 is even streetable, with a DOT-legal windshield, headlights, and taillights.
