Description

Guide price: £65000 - £75000. <ul><li>A superb recreation of the legendary 1973 Porsche 911 RS 2.7</li><li>Originally supplied in right-hand drive to Australia where it remained until 2016</li><li>Fitted with a later 3.2 Carrera engine and gearbox. Revised later suspension and uprated brakes</li><li>Now offered directly from a UK finance house at a very realistic guide price</li></ul><p> </p><p>The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms that this car was originally a 911E supplied new to the Australian market as a right-hand drive car in 1970, which suggests that having lived in that primarily dry climate from 1970 to 2016, the bodyshell is likely to be in extremely good order with no signs of rust or deterioration.</p><p>In 2010/11 the car was professionally rebuilt as an homage to the original 911 RS of 1973. The company stripped the shell back to bare metal and rebuilt it, with no shortcuts taken, to reproduce an authentic RS bodyshell to an extremely high standard. They then sourced and fitted a later 3.2 Carrera engine and gearbox and revised later suspension and brakes to easily handle this increase in power and performance. The bills on file suggest this work cost in excess of £100,000 at the time.</p><p>The car was imported to the UK in 2016 and then offered for sale by a specialist Porsche dealer and sold for £125,000. That clearly indicates the quality of this work and how well this car actually presents in the metal.</p><p>Offered from a respected UK funder, this car has recently been repossessed and is now offered directly from the UK finance house at a very realistic guide price, in fact, half of what it was sold for just two years ago.</p><p>Everyone loves the original 2.7RS and this wonderful tribute looks and drives exceptionally well, and offers outstanding value in the Sale today.</p>
