Chassis: 911 460 9077
Sold new to Georg Loos' Gelo Racing team, this 911 Carrera RSR 3.0 was extensively raced during the 1974 season. It scored GT class wins at the Nürburgring 1000 with John Fitzpatrick and Jürgen Barth and the Le Castellet 1000 km with Tim Schenken and Rolf Stommelen. It continued to be raced with considerable success into the 1975 season. It was then sold to Mario Balestra, who was also very successful with chassis 911 460 9077. The next owner was Bruno Rebai, who fitted a turbocharged 934 engine but damaged the car in an accident before he could race it. The car and all associated parts were sold to a Swedish enthusiast, who restored the RSR to its original configuration. It was then returned to Italy and then acquired by German enthusiast Ernst Schuster in 1985. He had the ex-Gelo Racing Porsche completely restored by specialist Sigi Brunn between 1987 and 1991. Since then it has been meticulously maintained but not used in historic racing. Having owned the car for nearly 40 years, Schuster eventually decided to part with the car and had it consigned to the 2022 Artcurial Retromobile sale.
