AC Legends 1973 Porsche RSR 2.8
Of the 1,580 original RS's built, only 55 became the RSR 2.8 race cars. For racing, the Porsche factory introduced code M491, the Renn Sport Rennen (RSR). Porsche took 55 RSH body shells off the line before the engines and transmissions had been ﬁtted and moved them down to a separate factory called Werk 1. This was Porsche’s racing shop and they chose this line to ensure an extremely high standard of preparation for their racing clients.
The 2.8 RSR looks different from a standard 2.7 RS because of its massive fender flares, central oil-cooler air intake, 'duck-tail' wing and ultra-wide Fuchs wheels. While the wider wheels and arches combined with the low air dam to give the RSR a much more aggressive look, the conversion process was much more than just a bunch of tweaks, it was a serious engineering exercise.
