This rare 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 RS offered for sale by William I'Anson Ltd has a rich period competition history. To complete the gruelling Le Mans 24 Hours once is impressive enough, but to go on and complete it a further three times, winning the Group 4 class in 1976, is perhaps an even more remarkable feat.
One of only 55 examples built and run from 1976 onwards by the famous Alméras Fréres team, this fine example's illustrious competition history embraces both racetrack and rally stages, it has competed in the Tour de France twice, the Monte Carlo Rally and Giro d'Italia, to name but a few. The car was driven on a number of occasions by versatile French legend Jean-Claude Andruet - and also featured in Disney's Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo.
With a long continuous ownership history, including a stint with renowned Porsche expert John Starkey, the restoration was completed fairly recently by Heritage Motorsport in America and Prill Porsche Classics in the UK.
