For sale: Porsche rally legend
HERE is an opportunity to buy what is said to be the most successful rallying Porsche of all time, which is for sale privately through the specialist car auction house H. & H. Classics and can be viewed in its Hindhead, Surrey, showroom. The restored Carrera 2.7-litre RS lightweight AUI 1500 is the stuff of motoring legend; itõs starred in television programmes and, in 1974, the car and driver, Cathal Brendon Curley, even had a pop song written about them.
The car was the highest-placed Porsche in the 1973 RAC Rally, was the winning car in three international rallies in 1974 and is the only surviving RS 2.7 to have won the Circuit of Ireland (Rallying to the cause, page 66). To view, telephone 01428 607899 or visit www.handh.co.uk
