The second of four RSR 2.8s earmarked for France, this car was sold through distributor Sonauto to Ecurie Défense Mondiale. It was entered that year for Jacques Almeras, who won the Group 4 French Hillclimb Championship. Ahead of the Tour de France, it was fitted, with the help of the factory, with the full-width 'Mary Stuart' rear wing also used by the works cars. Entered in the Group 5 class, it was driven to second overall in the Tour de France by Almeras. During the 1974 season, it was raced again in the Hillclimb Championship, this time by Jean Benaba. During its third season as a Ecurie Défense Mondiale car, it was raced by Jean-Francois Mas. He again managed to finish second overall in the Tour de France. In 1976, the modified 911 Carrera RSR 2.8 was acquired by Armand Lemay, who campaigned the car in a variety of rallies through to 1984. The third owner, Henry Beulas, bought the car from Mas in 1987 and had it restored to its 1973 Tour de France livery. The hugely successful RSR has more recently been restored to full running order for historic racing. At its first outing in three decades, it was raced by the new owner with non other than Jacques Almeras in the 2018 Espiritu de Montjuic.
