his 1974 Porsche 911 RSR is for sale!

Who said being a drug lord and a racing driver was incompatible? The Colombian trafficker, killed by police in 1993, owned a significant number of racing cars. This Porsche 911 RSR IROC that belonged to him is for sale to United States. Besides its history, it has been restored with care and should easily exceed one million euros at auction.

A rich but complex past

This Porsche 911 RSR from 1974 is a very specific version designed for the IROC championship. Created in 1973, its vocation was to have the best pilots from all disciplines compete

important in the world. It is besides the champion of Formula 1 Emerson Fittipaldi who had bought the vehicle to race from the first season at the wheel. You can see the stickers on the car, put back as originally during the restoration.

The 911 then passed into the hands of Roger Peske, founder of the famous stable in his name. The latter sold it a few months later to John Tunstall who participated in the 24H of Daytona then the 12H of Sebring. That’s when Pablo Escobar comes into play, and not for the good things. Indeed as it was the fashion at the time, the criminal had rearranged his Porsche in a model 935 in Martini colors. He took part in several races in South America before having to resell it.
