For sale: Porsche rally leg­end

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

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
