This jaw dropping Glacier white RSR is 1 of 45 factory built race cars. Sporting bolt on arches, huge wings, bonnet and boot pins, air jacks and a bonnet cut out for the endurance spec fuel tank it’s obvious this isn’t a standard 993 or RS.
Having been campaigned sporadically as a second car for Gentleman drivers this factory built race car has covered minimal mileage, it has remained accident free and still wears all of its original panels and factory produced numbered shell as it did when it left the factory, never crashed or altered.
With just one seat, no sound deadening and a matter roll cage the interior is extreme and built only for the race essentials. Air jacks are standard fit along with a fuel reserve light and the race programmed Motronic ECU behind the drivers seat.
As with all Porsche built race cars the Rev counter is turned on its side for a clear view of the climbing needle to the red line with further indicators on this car to protect any over revs with shift lights and a sticker. In addition a 993 handbrake lever and cables have been fitted for road regulations.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The M64/75 Type 3.8 RSR engine is an extensively reworked race-bred engine with stronger, lighter valve gear, rockers, high-lift cams and special pistons and barrels. To maximise performance, the inlet plenum and exhaust manifolds are also thoroughly revised and mated to six individual throttle bodies.
Power is delivered through a single-mass flywheel to a unique RSR six-speed Type G50/34 manual box.
As one of the most powerful naturally aspirated air-cooled engines built by the factory the noise and driving experience is addictive to say the least.
Run in period by a well respected and successful race team, serviced and inspected on arrival in the UK and again in house, the mechanical condition remains in excellent health.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The centre lock 18 inch RSR wheels are finished in gold and present in excellent order. Tyres are courtesy of Michelin Pilot sport tyres N rated and matching all round with large amounts of tread.
The braking system is factory fit Brembo calipers front and rear finished in red and clamped to huge drilled discs all round.
As confirmed by the original purchase invoice still present in the history file this RSR was ordered by 910 Corporation in January 1997 at the cost of nearly 240,000 Deutsche Marks.
Delivered and imported to Japan in March 1997 it was campaigned in Porsche Club Japan events as a track day toy and Sunday racer for a prominent collector and Porsche enthusiast. It?s minimal and light usage ensuring its factory built condition and low Kms remains intact today.
Imported into the UK in 2017 by famed Porsche collectors and enthusiasts it is road registered for the ultimate air-cooled driving experience.
The history file contains the original purchase invoice, period Japanese import document, Porsche dating letter (confirming build date, engine and transmission numbers) and spare key.
