Known History

This 2.7 RS has several special attributes. To start with, it has had just three owners from new. As indicated on the original warranty certificate, the car was delivered via the dealer Milan Car COMAUTO in May 1973 to a certain Mr Lanteri, a solicitor from Verbania. It later sold to a Mr Gobbi who registered it in his name then in the name of one of his parents, before it was taken off the road. The present owner, an important collector, acquired the car in 2010 decades after it had last been driven.

Next, this is a full matching numbers car, with all the original mechanical components including engine and transmission. Finally, it has benefitted from a sympathetic and correct restoration, thorough without being excessive, and faithful to the original and the spirit of the car. The current owner took it to the best Italian specialists to ensure the restoration respected its originality. The bodywork was stripped back to bare metal so that a rotisserie restoration could be carried out. It then benefitted from a repaint in its avorio chiaro colour (code 1111) of the highest quality carried out by the famous Carrozzeria Bottini in Milan.

The Carrozzeria Melli, based in Como, carried out a full overhaul of the engine and transmission. Work on the interior was entrusted to the upholsterers Ferraresi based in Ferrara.

We strongly advise interested parties to consult the photo book covering the various stages of the restoration, as well as the file of invoices for spare parts. Unusually, the car still has its log books, owner's manuals and warranty certificate addressed to the first owner.

Today, the car is presented in superb condition and to the correct specification for the 'Touring' version more suited to road use than the Lightweight cars, designed to excel on the circuit. It is complete with all its equipment and displays a high quality of finish, with comfortable seats in leatherette and velours. The Touring version benefitted from all the dynamic qualities the model was renowned for, offering the perfect combination of light weight, rigidity and power. Weighing around a tonne, it could travel from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds, which was a superb performance for the start of the 1970s ! What also makes the Carrera RS interesting is its rarity. Being a special homologation, only 1 590 examples were produced. Many specialists consider the Carrera RS 2.7 to be the quintessential 911, with the ideal combination of qualities. A car that becomes even more special when in impeccable condition and with transparent history, as with the example we are fortunate to offer here.
