Classic car auction disruptor, The Market, recently sold this stunning Porsche 911 RSR Recreation, which had been freshly built to the exacting standards of the 1975 Le Mans 24-Hour race car upon which it is based.
Created with impeccable attention to detail, this RSR Recreation was originally an American market 1977 Porsche 911 that was stripped to a bare shell and meticulously prepared and reassembled with some of the finest components money can buy.
Presented in one of the most evocative racing liveries of the 1970s, based on that used on the 1975 Le Mans 24-Hour Porsche 911 Carrera RSR and the 1976 European GT Championship 934 RSR, the striking green paintwork, coloured stripes and ‘Vaillant’ sponsorship livery look absolutely stunning.
The interior features a genuine Porsche Momo steering wheel fitted to a quick-release hub, black Alcantara covered dashboard, fully welded roll cage, harness and high-back racing bucket seat.
This RSR Recreation also features a 3.6-litre twin-spark ‘964’ engine which develops in the region of 250-260bhp, RSR-spec coilover suspension, 930 Turbo brakes (as per the RSR), a Quaife limited-slip differential, and a bespoke exhaust system.
