Description

Guide price: £60000 - £70000. <ul><li>A versatile 911 designed to recreate that 'RSR experience'</li><li>1978 Carrera shell fully restored by SVP Motorsport</li><li>Built with low weight and performance in mind but remains a civilised road car</li><li>Power measured at 282bhp and the car weighs 950kilos. An impressive 300bhp/tonne</li><li>Only 2,000km since it was finished in June 2014</li></ul><p>This, very special, left-hand drive, lightweight masterpiece was created by SVP Motorsport and the engine built under the watchful eye of Mike Bainbridge. The ethos behind the build was to create an everyday 911 which could be driven for pleasure or could be used on a circuit or for track-days where its performance and handling can really be exploited.</p><p>A rust-free '78 European non-sunroof Carrera shell formed the basis of the project and this was naturally taken back to bare metal. It was converted to period RSR specification using handmade 2.8 RSR steel rear arches and fibreglass bumpers and front arches. The chassis was epoxy bonded and painted factory black. The engine is a 1976 normally-aspirated 3.0-litre with aluminium crankcases and was completely stripped, rebuilt, balanced and blueprinted, with new pistons, rods, valves, cams, twin spark ignition, and electronic fuel injection. The engine is dressed in fibreglass 'tinware' and sits within a stainless steel engine carrier using Wevo engine mounts to eliminate flex and withstand high outputs. Engine power has been measured at 282bhp and the car weighs 950kilos equating to an impressive 300bhp/tonne.</p><p>Attention to detail has clearly been paid to every part of the car during its creation and it now sports 930 brakes, a front-mounted oil cooler, and a rebuilt 915 five-speed, close-ratio transmission. A lot of time was spent on weight saving, weight distribution and achieving the perfect driving position and the period style interior was kept deliberately simple but includes modern day touches such as an aluminium cup holder and window openers.</p><p>The car has only covered around 2,000km since being finished in June 2014 and it's accompanied by an excellent history/owner's file, including the original maintenance book, invoices, records, MoT history and some spare parts. Reported by our vendor to be rust free and a pure joy to drive whilst going "like a stabbed rat" when requested. A huge amount of effort and money has gone into creating this authentic RSR experience and the car is in need of nothing other than a few cosmetic finishing touches.
