In the coming days, a rather rare Porsche 930 Turbo Rinspeed R69 will be sold at a foreign auction.

The Porsche 930 Turbo, which was first shown back in 1975, could rightfully be called the fastest production car available in Germany at that time. During the first two model years, the car was powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged engine.

Atelier Rinspeed has unveiled its version of the German sports coupe, which has received the designation R69. A total of 12 vehicles were modified.

The car received new body panels, after the installation of which the Porsche 930 Turbo from the Rinspeed studio became similar to the Italian supercar Ferrari Testarossa, especially because of the retractable headlights.

The sports car sold at the auction is equipped with an original 3.3-liter turbo engine with intercooled engine, designed for a maximum power of 296 “horses”. All torque is transmitted to the rear wheels through a four-speed “mechanics”. According to the passport, the car should be able to accelerate to 100 km / h in just 5.4 seconds.

This particular car was converted by Rinspeed in 1983, about three years after it left the Porsche showroom in the United Kingdom. The sales description says it is in excellent condition. Of course, there are a couple of downsides – shabby leather upholstery and minor damage to the lacquer on the wheels.

The car sells for £ 50,000
