Porsche 911 RSR IROC
From its inaugural season in 1974 the famed International Race of Champions was a fan favorite, pitting drivers from various disciplines against each other in a contest of pure driving ability. This 1974 Porsche 911 RSR, chassis number 911 460 0100, was driven by F1 and Indy star Emerson Fittipaldi in the first IROC race of that first season at Riverside International Raceway and served as a reserve vehicle for the duration. One of only 15 purpose-built by Penske for the IROC series, it has been through a three-year no-expense-spared restoration, retaining its original matching numbers 3.0 L “high butterfly” racing engine, and is arguably one of the finest IROC cars in existence. Documentation includes the original Bills of Sale from Penske to the first owner and then from the first to the second owner, and the MSO from Penske.
