Motorsport Monday: 1971 Porsche 911 RSR Martini Racing replica

I think I’ve made it pretty clear that I think Martini Racing colors are just awesome. Some people insist everything looks better in “Gulf Blue”, but for me, it’s those Martini stripes that made some of the best looking race cars (and in a very few cases, even improved road cars). Case in point is today’s example; perhaps one of the strangest downforce attempts of the 1970s on a Porsche – the Mary Stuart tailed Martini Racing RSR. While a neat design in some ways, it certainly looks odd from other angles. Today’s 1971 911 is a recreation of the original, but you can’t deny that it looks fantastic in the proper Martini Racing colors of the 1973 RSR:

1991 Audi 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avant – REVISIT

1991 Audi 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avant – REVISIT

There was a lot of interest in the black 91 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avant Paul wrote up last month. Rightly so, since it was a classic color, in fantastic shape, and had lower miles. As one of our readers noted, it was no surprise that car disappeared in a hurry. Running across these 200s – especially in the more understated black or silver colors – is pretty tough, and finding any color in good shape is becoming a longer search. Today I found the same Lago Blue Metallic 200 20V Turbo Quattro Avant for sale that we featured last year on GCFSB. The seller has lowered the price by $1,000.

1991 Audi 200 turbo quattro Avant – This is an amazing example of a 1 year only vehicle that is both fun and very practicle. 215,000 well kept miles. Just had the timing belt done, new brake accumulater (bomb), complete tuneup, new battery and new headliner. This is the first year of the 20 valve turbo motor and with the stage II chip and 3 inch custom exhaust it is running at just about 280hp. We get a constant 20mpg and have seen a best tank of freeway driving of 26mpg. The interior is in excellent shape with only some padding break down in the drivers side bolster of the drivers side sport seat. The factory sport seats are excellent and the seat adjustment memory panel functions great as do the original seat heaters. The only two things that aren�t operating well is that the sunroof motor is very slow and the airbag light is on due to the clockspring being worn.

1966 Amphicar 770

1966 Amphicar 770

If I were to attempt to draw a Mercedes Benz 280SE Convertible, my rendering would likely be confused with this car. Looking like a jacked up Mercedes that spent a little too much time in a J.C. Whitney catalog spending spree, the Amphicar was neither a particularly good road car, nor was it a particularly good boat; but it was one of a very select few automobiles that could be both on demand. It’s fairly amazing that even with the budget of the BBC James May couldn’t get a Triumph Herald convertible to float, but in their own way, of course the Germans did! If you’re not in a hurry to get anywhere on either land or sea, today’s 1966 example looks ready to cast off in Lagoon Blue:

This is a 1966 Amphicar 770 and is a two owner car. In 2010 Rocky Mountain Amphicars did some work to ensure it was preserved in excellent working condition.

It has had a complete paint job, new upholstery, all new seals, gaskets, engine mounts, brakes, bilge pump, tires, top, muffler, tailpipe and front and rear bumpers The original radiator, heater core and oil cooler were checked and all found to be leak free! Both radiator hoses and clamps are new and all heater hoses were replaced. The fan shroud is painted black, has new rubber seals all around installed and assembled to radiator with stainless screws and bolts etc. It has a new fuel valve and the ON/OFF/RESERVE selector works as it should.

Double Take: A Duo of Audi S6 quattros

Double Take: A Duo of Audi S6 quattros

Like the last “Double Take” I did on two Passat W8 Variants, today’s double feature is two powerful eight cylinder all-wheel drive wagons from the Volkswagen Audi Group – this time, it’s two S6 quattro Avants. Like the W8, these S6s were pricey when new but have maintained a cult following that loves them. Rare to see anywhere you go, they offer lots of speed from their 340hp V8s, lots of comfort from their luxurious interiors, all-weather capability and a massive load capacity. Today we’ll start by looking at an Atlas Grey 2003 and finish with a Pearlesant White 2002:

1987 Porsche 959

1987 Porsche 959

If the Ferrari F40 was the pin up hero for most teenage boys, the Porsche 959 was its arch-enemy, and was the car I was always interested in. The F40 was a pared down street racer, while the 959 sported experimental exotic technologies that even 30 years later most cars don’t have – 6 speed manual? Yep. Active suspension? Yep, that too. Hollow spoke wheels with tire pressure monitoring system? Sure, we can do that. Kevlar composite body? Why not? Active torque splitting all-wheel drive system? Let’s give it a go. A technological Tour de Force, the 959 wowed crowds with all of these shocking options when it was launched in a still hard to believe 1985, beating the F40 to the market.

Even at the time it was released, the 959 was a bit of an enigma – did Porsche want to win Le Mans or Paris Dakar with it? Well, it did both – Paris Dakar outright, and it won it’s class at Le Mans. It was also one of the fastest production cars in the world, with a sub-4 second 0-60 time – something that modern supercars still strive for. Did I mention this car is the best part of 30 years old? Like all of the dream cars that remained firmly out of U.S. buyers hands, the 959 remained a forbidden fruit for many years. But today, even if your name isn’t Gates or Seinfeld, you can own in the U.S. one of the most highly sought after cars ever made – a silver 1987 Porsche 959:

1971 Opel GT

The Opel GT has always been a car that intrigued me. There are times that I look at it and think “Yeah, that car is awesome!” and then I see another and think “Man, that car is just not right!”. I’m not sure why I have such a polar reaction to this model, but I seem to every time. There are some that to me just look fantastic, and others that look like kit cars gone wrong. Perhaps that is in part due to the number of these that I’ve seen in good condition – I’m sure I can count it on one hand. Many, many more I’ve seen rotting in driveways (not unlike some of the Corvettes they were modeled after…), half covered in tarps and awaiting – nee, begging for some attention. Today’s example has obviously gotten a lot of that attention, and is one of the few that makes me smile:

Opel GT completely restored. Drives very nice. Engine rebuilt and engine compartment restored. Nice interior, tires, wheels, stereo, glass, and paint. You will not be disappointed with this vehicle. I’ve never seen a Opel GT this clean. Buyer responsible for shipping.

509

The absolute best way to restore a car is to buy a car that someone else has restored. There is no cheaper way to do it, with one caveat – you hope they did it right. Today’s Opel GT sure looks great, but the lack of details on the restoration, the knock-off alloys, questionable dash padding and stripes make me wonder a bit how thorough this restoration was. These are pretty simple cars that surprisingly you can still get parts for, so I’m not sure that would turn me off all that much.…

1985 Porsche 930

1985 Porsche 930

If you wanted a Porsche 911 Turbo in 1985 in the U.S., you were out of luck; Porsche, intent on pushing the 928 as the premier car in its lineup and saddled with increasingly tough emissions regulations had pulled the 930 from the U.S. lineup in the early 1980s. That didn’t stop many individuals from seeking them out and importing them directly from Europe. With a reputation for being a widow-maker, early 930s still captivate the motoring masses with supercar slaying performance and brutish good looks. Like most of the 911 range, prices have steadily been on the rise and these are a go-to for collectors. Today’s example looks excellent in Guards Red with some Ruf details:

1972 Audi 100 LS

1972 Audi 100 LS

The third generation Audi 100 (5000 to the U.S.) was so revolutionary as a mid-sized sedan, it’s easy to forget that there were two generations of Audi 100s that preceded it. Long before the legendary Quattro debuted, Audi was actually selling a reasonable amount of 100LSs and Foxes here in the 1970s. Not the sportiest or most luxurious of the mid range sedans, the 100 wasn’t the best competition for BMW and Mercedes-Benz, but in its day it was a respectable car. Unfortunately, its day didn’t last very long; plagued with reliability, rust and electrical issues, many of these 100s left a sour taste in U.S. buyers mouths. Now 40 years later, finding a clean 100 is a tough job, but once in a while one pops up for sale, such as today’s black 1972 100LS::

I purchased this several years ago from the original “old lady” owner / driver in Maryland. It was all black with original paint. It was just professionally repainted with a cream colored roof.

Has the original tan vinyl interior, with a little over 60,000 miles on the odometer. In very good condition, drives well. Minimal rust. Never been in an accident. I still drive occasionally, it gets 27mpg. Front brakes have been totally redone, booster bypassed for now. Excellent tires and new front shocks (Boge). The AC/air conditioner has been converted to a newer, more efficient type of compressor, replacing the old York, which vibrated too much and was quite a drag. The pulleys have all been machined to use current 38 degree V belts which was a real boner problem, because Audi spec’ed the original belt at something like 60 degrees and then stopped selling them!

1996 Audi S6

1996 Audi S6

Before you start furiously typing “C4 S6 production ended in 1995”, let me clarify something – it didn’t, and this car is from Canada. Satisfied, eh? We’ve covered a string of S6s recently, mostly focusing on the wagon variant that most people desire. However, there are some sedan fans out there, and the S6 made a very capable sedan as well. These cars have remained consistently under their competitors prices despite good looks, solid build quality, all weather capacity, and nearly unlimited tuning potential. Today’s example is a very clean high mile driver in the very popular (at the time) Emerald Green Mica:

Tuner Tuesday – 1997 Ruf CTR2 Sport

Tuner Tuesday – 1997 Ruf CTR2 Sport

Most Rufs need little introduction. They can be summed up in one word: fast. As such, let me tell you about my encounter with this particular Ruf. The year was 2001 and I was at Road America for a PCA race with Mustante Motorsports. On the first day that we were there, it was a combined test day and Viper race. This car was racing a pack of 25-30 Vipers, all well set up. The green flag flew, and so did the Ruf – so much so, that it had a solid 5-6 second lead at the end of the first lap. That kind of lead is something Vettel would give his left arm for. I remember thinking it was such an unfair race, but at the same time sooooo cool. What was particularly memorable about it, though, was that you could see the car, but unlike the bellowing Vipers, the Ruf made almost no noise. It was both fascinating and surreal – the only other object I’ve ever seen moving that fast and not making sound was a supersonic jet fighter – a fitting comparison, I think. Fast forward a few years and now you can own the “ludicrous speed” of what is probably the best known Ruf in the United States – the prototype CTR2 Sport built for the Beddors:

Motorsport Monday – Derek Bell Signature Edition Porsche 962 #0

Motorsport Monday – Derek Bell Signature Edition Porsche 962 #0

I have to admit, I was a little disappointed last week that more of you weren’t interested in the SRP2 Picchio I wrote up. What a deal that car was as a track weapon! But I get it, not everyone likes an unknown race car. Well then, how about a very well known race car that’s been turned into a road car? If this doesn’t get your interest, you need to talk to your doctor and check your pulse. That’s because today we’re looking at a road legal Porsche 962.

The exploits of the 962 are pretty well known, but to those who don’t, this is one of the most winning endurance prototypes ever developed. Capable of 6 minute Nurburgring times and 250 mph at Le Mans, the 962 was a dream car in the 1980s and remains so today. Getting to see one of these cars in the flesh still gives me goosebumps – it’s as if a Titan has come to Earth to grace you with its presence. Not content with leaving these cars only to race, there were several different road-legal versions produced – Dauer, DP Motorsports and Schuppan all made versions. In the heady supercar times of the late 80s, someone decided to give it another go and slap 5 time Le Mans winner Derek Bell’s name on it. While the production run never came to be, the prototype is available today, ready for you to pop some number plates on it:

1993 Audi 90CS Quattro

1993 Audi 90CS Quattro

Let’s just say that you’re looking for an older Audi quattro, but you can’t stomach buying one that needs work or two that need work. That’s certainly understandable! Sure, they have more style than the A4, but those A4 prices are so low now and they’re pretty attractive to boot. Well, if you like the early A4 but want something a little more unique, there is the all-but-forgotten 90CS quattro. Based on the heavily revised B4 chassis, the 90CS quattro received body, interior and drive train updates over the 88-91 cars, making it a more comfortable highway cruiser and look a bit more upscale. This was the lowest point of Audis sales in the U.S. since the very early 1980s, so seeing these B4 90 quattros especially in good shape is a rare event, even in the Northeastern states. Today’s example is a lightly modified 93 in Emerald Green Mica:

1991 Audi 90 20V Quattro 2 for 1 project

Last month I wrote up a very clean Ginster Yellow 1990 Audi Coupe Quattro, a rare color on a rare car. However, if you thought that was rare, today’s Audi duo is nearly extinct – the Coupe Quattro’s twin 4 door brother, the 90 20V Quattro. The Coupe version outsold the sedan at a nearly three to one clip, and with massive depreciation and heavy use, few remain today. While it’s downright hard to find a one in good shape, I found a two-for-one deal driver/project on Ebay today. Winter is coming soon, and it’s time to start thinking about winter drivers and ice racing; few are better than the early Quattros in the snow:

1991 Audi Sport 20V (Qty. 2)

Yes this auction is for two (2) Audi 90 Quattro 20V sedans. As you know, the 20V was brought into the United States for just 2 years (1990-1991)

These cars were imported as 2 door coupes and much rarer 4 door sedans as these are. Fewer than 500 sedans are believed to have been imported.

These are the 2nd gen Audi “Quattro’s” when AWD cars in the U.S. were pretty much unheard of. These 2.3L, 5 cyl, 164HP Quattro’s were developed for Rally racing in Europe at the time.They came with 5 speed transmissions, VDO gauges, differential lock and ABS, sport tuned suspensions, rear spoiler and BBS “mesh” wheels stock.

The main car is a great running vehicle. Bought from the original owner and sold new in Reno, NV where it has lived it’s rust free life.

1987 Audi 4000CS Quattro

1987 Audi 4000CS Quattro

As a general rule, we don’t feature project cars on GCFSB.com, but occasionally a rare case comes up that warrants attention. Such is the case with today’s 1987 Audi 4000CS Quattro. Just as with the 90 20V quattros I wrote up the other day, finding a good example of one of these workhorses is quite hard. In general, they were ridden hard and put away wet, and when coupled with serious depreciation they have mostly faded into the corners of people’s minds. Despite this, the 4000CS Quattro remains the blueprint for Audi’s sales success – while the Turbo Quattro Coupe gained most of the attention, it was really the 4000 (80 in ROW) that brought the quattro drive train to the masses. Today’s example is one of the last of the B2 chassis to arrive in the U.S., a Tornado Red snow machine:

I am going to start with the bad, I do not need to sell this car, just came across an opportunity to purchase a vintage rally car and I would like to go in that direction.

Car runs and drives but has a serious oil leak. It needs the valve cover gasket replaced. I have the part but have not replaced it yet as I also have a rebuilt head, ported.
