Completed in March of 1973, this RSR 2.8 was sold new to the Oldenkott Tobacco company. It was entrusted to Kremer Racing, who fielded the car for Oldenkott Tobacco in the European GT Championship. Driven predominantly by Clemens Schickentanz, it proved hugely successful and won the championship in 1973. At the end of the season, it was sold to Hubert Striebig, who had it updated to RSR 3.0 specification and prepared by Louis Meznarie. Striebig scored class wins at Nogaro and Magny Cours but unfortunately crashed out of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Using a spare shell, it was subsequently rebuilt by Meznarie and was raced again at Le Mans in 1975. With Hughes Kirschoffer and Pierre Mauroy as co-drivers, Striebig finished 28th overall. Later that year, it was also raced in the Tour de France. During the 1976 and 1977 seasons, it was campaigned French hill climb events by Alan Schick. It then spent time in the ownership of French racing team Alméras Frères. In 1986, it was acquired by the president of the French Porsche Club, who had it restored to its 1973 specifications. It changed hands again in 1997 and the next owner immediately had Brunn Racing rebuilt the car for use in historic events. Campaigned briefly, it has had a relatively quiet life throughout the 2000s and 2010s. After a 25-year ownership, it was consigned to the 2022 Gooding London Auction complete with an extensive set of spares.
