We are delighted to offer this extraordinary 1975 Kremer Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR for sale which is one of only 57 Porsche 911 3.0 RSR build.
For the 1974 season, Porsche produced yet another evolution of the 911. Developed around the 3-litre RS homologation special, the 3-litre RSR became the most successful Group 4 car of its era. In its early years, the RSR swept all before it in IMSA, Trans Am and the FIA World Championship, production beginning in late 1973.
They were equipped with Typ 911/75 engines featuring high-lift camshafts, Bosch slide injection and twin plug ignition. There was also a large capacity dry sump oil tank and dual megaphone exhaust from the 2.8 RSR. Displacement remained unchanged from the RS at 2992cc but the compression was upped from 9.8 to 10:3.1, the result having been 330bhp at 8000rpm.
The five-speed transmission from the RS was installed along with a new dry plate Fichtel and Sachs sintered clutch. Coil springs were either steel or titanium. Visually the 3-litre RSR was enhanced with special five-spoke centre-locking 15-inch wheels, these having been 10.5-inches wide at the front and a massive 14-inches at the back. Ultra-light grassfire panels were used for the ventilated wheel arch extensions, bumpers, front lid, engine cover and rear spoiler.
Inside, the stripped-out cockpit got a solitary high-backed Recaro bucket seat with vinyl bolsters and cloth center, a six-point racing harness holding the occupant firmly in place.
Weighing in at a mere 900kg, the RSR was obviously a very quick car, in excess of 170mph having been possible while 0-60 took less than five seconds. Towards the end of 1974, most cars were coming out of the factory with closer to 350bhp, the last dozen examples (made from mid 1974) having been built on the 1975 model year H-series platform. Consequently, these cars use a 560 as opposed to a 460 VIN prefix. Some later cars were also equipped with the Carrera Turbo-style flat front bumper first used by Peter Gregg and the Brumos team.
The RSR raced through the 1974 and ’75 seasons vanquishing the opposition and providing Porsche with its most successful customer racing car.
When Porsche stopped with the production of the 3.0 RSR (switching to the 934), it had 4 RSR chassis left. One was used to build another car for Ludwig Heimrath while the other 3 RSR chassis were supplied to Kremer who build-up 3 full spec RSR's identical to the cars supplied by Porsche. One of these 3 RSR was #005 0004 (the hidden production number given by Porsche) whereby the first three numbers refer to the year (005 for 1975) and the following 4 digits denoting the actual number of chassis in that year. Kremer used to also use the Porsche hidden production number as the VIN-Nr for the car.
As such, a total of 53 plus 4 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR were build.
#005 0004 is in immaculate condition with fresh paint and decals. The original RSR type 911/75 engine crankcase, complete with all racing components, comes with the car in a separate crate. The engine currently fitted in the car is a 3.0 liter 930 turbo case with approximately 15 hours which was freshened and gone through last winter. The top of the engine (slides, trumpets, injection pump, etc.) is original. The transmission (correct type 915) also has approximately 15 hours and all bushings were recently replaced. The car currently has an electronic distributor and electric tacho and and rev-counter fitted but the original distributor and VDO gauges come with the car as do the original trailing control arms (custom replacements are fitted on the car). The seat in the car is the original Lollipop seat. The windshield is new and unscratched. Correct 917-like Speedline RSR wheels. This car has been completely gone through and it is truly race ready.
005 0004 is very well documented with continuous ownership from new. Available with the car are the original ONS Wagenpass, 2007 FIA HTP, an extensive picture restoration file together with a fully documented history file and in-period pictures.
In addition to the original 917-type wheels fitted to the car, this well known "Wally's Jeans RSR" comes with 2 sets of black powder coated BBS wheels.More...

We are proud to offer this Nissan Group C car, built on chassis R90C-07, which is the only example of the type R93CK and represents the final development of the Nissan R89/90C line of which this car is the last of. Lola built 13 chassis for Nissan over two years of competition starting with six T89/10 chassis in 1989 built to R89C spec.
For 1990, seven T90/10 chassis were built, six of them to R90CK spec, with one tub, R90C-07 being set aside unbuilt as a spare. The very last of the 13 Lola tubs, it was built up in December 1990 by Nova Engineering of Japan to R90CK spec. Painted yellow with From-A sponsorship, R90C-07 raced throughout 1991 in the Japanese domestic series in the hands of A.Nakaya and Volkert Weidler who finished second first time out in the Fuji 500 Kms. They then finished second twice again that year, in the Fuji 1000 Kms and the Sugo 500 Kms. R90C-07's only race appearance outside Japan was in 1992 at the Daytona 24 Hours where Weidler, Mauro Martini and Jeff Krosnoff brought the car home 8th. It was the only time R90C-07 raced that year as Nova switched to their spare car, chassis R90C-06 on loan from Nissan, for the remainder of the '92 season and which was returned them at the end of the year.
In 1993 the car was uprated to R93CK spec, the only one of the thirteen chassis to be built or uprated to this spec. It raced once in 1993, finishing 2nd in the Suzuka 1000 Kms with Mauro Martini,and young up and coming German hotshot Heinz-Harald Frentzen. This would be the only race appearance for the type R93CK, for by then Group C racing was basically dead with the category collapsing after the cancellation of the World Sportscar Championship at the end of 1992. Apart from Japan, and Le Mans with its restricted boost and fuel allowance, there really was nowhere to race a Group C sports racing car.
After it was retired from active competition, R90C-07 was placed in dry storage until bought by McLaren/Trojan registrar and Supersports organiser Charlie Agg via Mike Gue of Essex Racing. Charlie raced the car in the new Group C Historic series both in Europe, and in the USA where Charlie took part in the HSR Endurance events at Daytona and Sebring in 2002, and at the Le Mans Legends in 2004. Charlie sold R90C-07 to George Purdie in 2008 whose son Andy took part in the Goodwood Festival of Speed that year and raced the car in historics until 2010 when the car sold to its current owner, who has raced the car sucessfully in Group C historics since then including a return to Le Mans for the legends event in 2012.
This Nissan R90CK is one of the few cars which - in the right hands - can beat the Sauber Mercedes. The car is well documented and is fully on-the-button with everything being fresh and current. It needs nothing and comes with an enormous spares package comprised of moulds, bodywork, several engines, etc..Enough to run the car without the need to buy anything for a good number of years !
This is a rare opportunity to buy one of the 3 Nissan R90's in private hands and to be at the front in the increasingly popular Group C racing scene.More...
Manufactured in 1963, this is not an ordinary Cortina but a genuine, factory supported Lotus Cortina Mk1 series 1 “S-frame” car to the correct specification.
Driven by Arthur Blank as a “Ford Switzerland” entry, it had factory support from Lotus which continued when it was run by the Scuderia Filipinetti team. It has further kudos in being the 1965 Swiss Touring car Champion.
This well documented Cortina with continuous ownership is ready to be enjoyed on the track or road (UK registered). After 45 years living in Switzerland, it was brought to the UK in 2008 after which more than GBP 40,000 has been spent on it. It was then used sparingly with 2 races in UK and the Tour Auto rally in 2010 for which new seats were fitted. The engine is freshly rebuild by Field Motorsport and has less than 1 hour running (dyno-tested at 160 bhp @ 6500 rpm and strong torque of 145lbs). New calipers, fire system and seat belts.
Having 2010 FIA HTP papers and a UK road registration, this Lotus Cortina with exceptional works pedigree is ready to give its new owner great fun on the race track or on the road !More...
