Home > Previously Sold > PORSCHE 2.7 RS LIGHTWEIGHT (Matching No./restored), 1973
1 OF ONLY 17 RHD CARS
1 OF ONLY 2 BLOOD ORANGE LIGHTWEIGHTS
There is a very strong case to be made for the 2.7 RS Lightweight being the greatest 911 ever made. Paul Frere, Le Mans 24-hour winner and former Formula 1 drive described the 2.7 RS as “the most desirable collectors car of all. And, in terms of driving pleasure, the best 911 of all time.”
Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer one of the finest Porsche 2.7 RS Lightweights in existence. Chassis number 9113601101 is one of just 17 RHD lightweights produced and is one of only two delivered new in blood orange.
The car was supplied new by Dick Lovett Porsche but after only three months was traded back to Lovetts before being bought and shipped over to Ireland where its illustrious and extraordinary history really began. With the car there is an extensive and highly detailed history outlining every inch of the car’s life. The car was subjected to a complete re-build in the 1980’s by renowned specialists, Autofarm. The car was once again completely re-built in 2016 by Maxted Paige Ltd. The car is still in an incredible condition that really needs to be seen to be believed.
The car is presented as it was when it left the factory. A viewing of the car and detailed look and read through the history file cannot be recommended highly enough. We have not come across a 2.7 RS here at Hexagon that is presented in greater condition.
Available to view at our North London Showroom.
