In 1974 the International Race of Champions (IROC) was created. The concept was to have 12 drivers from different driving disciplines race identical cars to see who was the best. The first series was done using 1974 Porsche 911RSR’s specifically designed for the purpose.
15 cars were made, 12 for the drivers and 3 spares. The drivers were: Mark Donohue, Peter Revson, Bobby Unser, David Pearson, Richard Petty, AJ Foyt, Emerson Fittipaldi, George Fullmer, Dennis Hulme, Bobby Allison, Gordon Johncock, and Roger McClusky.
Each car was painted in a unique color, to take advantage of the fairly new color TV’s in peoples homes.
This is the Fittipaldi car. Originally brought into the US and owned by Roger Penske, the chain of ownership is unbroken, and includes ownership by drug lord Pablo Escobar who raced it with 935 bodywork (photos can be found on the internet).
This is also one of the only IROC RSR with IMSA racing history as well, when it was owned and campaigned by John Tunstall.
These cars very rarely come up for sale, the last 2 being the Donohue car, and the Revson car which was sold by Jerry Seinfeld for $2.31 million.
Professionally restored. Ready to race or to be added to your collection. Full documentation and many more photos available.
