The 'ultimate Porsche 911' to sell for £220k

February 16-17 will see the first of eight 2010 auctions held by H&H at the Pavilion Gardens in Buxton, Derbyshire.

The event has already attracted a number of notable consignments - among them, the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight (M471 Sport).

Originally conceived as a Group 4 homologation special, the Carrera RS 2.7 is regarded by many as the ultimate Porsche 911.

Of the 1,580 cars made, just 200 were built to Lightweight (M471 Sport) specification, with a mere 17 of those featuring right-hand drive.

This particular example enjoyed considerable rallying success in its heyday.

Later reconfigured as a road car, this 911 was restored by Autofarm before being acquired by its current private owner in 1989.

Fettled by Neil Bainbridge and Bob Watson since then, this iconic Porsche is finished in its factory correct hue of Tangerine.

It will drive up to the auction block with an estimate of £180,000-220,000.
