This car was delivered in February 1973 with engine nr 6630680 and gearbox nr 7830667 to its first Italian owner Emilio Encole of Milan. With two subsequent Milanese owners, #0671 was then purchased by Como based Flavio Vigano who used the car from 1977 to 1979 in various Italian races and hill climbs with excellent results.
Over the next 15 years, the car passed through several other Italian owners (all of which are known and documented) until it was bought in 2002 by Marcello Medici who ordered a full restoration of the car by the best Italian craftsmen and specialists (Cremonini for the bodywork and paint, Biasseti for the mechanicals and Ferraresi for the interior). When finished and during his 10 year subsequent ownership, Mr Medici coveted his 2.7 RS and occasionally showed it in Porsche Italy concours events.
In 2013, we brokered the sale of #0671 to its prior owner who used the car sparingly while in his Austrian vacation residence. Earlier this year, we took the car in part-exchange and hereby offer it for sale.
This Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS Touring is one of only 71 cars delivered in striking Viper Green. As it is an early chassis-number, it has thin gauge steel thereby shaving 38 kg of the car’s weight. The VIN-plate and chassis numbers are all present and authentic with matching engine and gearbox. It comes with its original Sports seats (separate), carpets (separate), toolkit and compressor. Italian and Austrian road registration documents.
This is clearly an exceptional 2.7 RS which is priced-to-sell in today’s market and ready to be cherished by its next, lucky custodian!
