Note: Cool Suit Equipment (cooler, controls, mounting bracket, etc) and the transponder itself are not included with the car. This is essentially a brand new car……3 hours on the chassis and one hour on the engine. It is a beautifully done, professionally built, period-correct reproduction of a ’74 RS R that weighs 2000#, has 301 HP, unusually strong torque (approx. 284 lbft), great brakes, endless cooling.…….. and huge tires that make this 911 almost neutral handling……… and the tires last until they have heat cycled out rather than worn out. The car delivers all the sensory stimulation one could imagine. To give you some context for the RS R’s performance, here are my personal comparisons on the 1.5 mile roval at PIR in Phoenix: While I was not yet fully dialed into the car, I ran 1:06.5 in the ’74 RS R in my initial outing. I believe there is 1:05 in the car. I have two personal comparisons at PIR in two previous cars: my ‘96 993 Twin Turbo (3100#; 500HP) ran 1:06 and my ‘96 factory 993 twin turbo GT2 race car (2500#; 550HP) ran 1:04. The car is one of several similar cars developed by John James Racing in Chandler, Arizona. They are well evolved and thoroughly sorted. There have been virtually no DNF’s among these cars. They cars have been very successful in historic competition around the US, including last winter’s Daytona Rennsport and most recently the even more heavily attended historics at Road America.
