Arguably the most famous K3 of all, this works car was sold to the Whittington brothers just hours, literally, ahead of the 1979 Le Mans. Helped by works driver Klaus Ludwig, they managed to claim a historic outright victory. The car was later shipped to the United States where it was raced with some success, highlighted by a victory in the World Championship race at Watkins Glen. The Le Mans winning car was later sold to the Indianapolis Motorsport Hall of Fame where it was displayed for many years. It was sold only very recently to the current custodian, a California based collector. Freshly restored by Canepa Design, it was shown at the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where the Porsche 911's 50th anniversary was celebrated. The highly successful 935 K3 won top honours in the class for 911 competition cars.
