This Is my beautiful Porsche Type 718 RSK Spider Recreation.
If you are not aware of the place of the 718 RSK in Porsche history, a small number, 35 in total were built for competition use in .In 1958 they achieved top three placings at Buenos Aires and Sebring and in the Targa Florio plus a fourth and fifth at Le Mans, giving Porsche an end of season second to Ferrari in the Manufactures World Championship.
RSK spiders rarely come onto the market. The most recent sale I could find was Goodings Auctions in the U.S.in 2018 where they sold car number 19 from the Jerry Seinfeld collection for just short of $3 million US. It is on you tube. The guide price was $3,800,000 to $4,200,000. so it fell short of the guide price, but it was still a very respectable figure.
Back to my car; The bodywork is finished in unmarked aluminium silver and the interior is in contrasting oak diamond stitched leather with full race harnesses , fire extinguisher , ignition master cut off switch and fuel pump cut off switch, period wood rim steering wheel and period gear knob. It has the low wrap around plexiglass screens. Carpets are fitted for a degree of comfort over an out and out competition car. The car has a rear mounted flat four 1600 engine with a superb sounding twin exit exhaust system - It truly does looks and sounds superb.
On the road it embodies all the characteristics of the period with a true feeling of nostalgia when you are behind the wheel.
Registered as a 1968 Volkswagen Historic Vehicle it is now both tax and MOT exempt and is in outstanding condition having covered a mileage of just 4000 since professional completion . The most recent work has been to upgrade the old dynamo to a modern alternator.
Offered at a fraction of the price of the genuine article this car represents exceptional value in today’s market. It draws admiring comments from everyone who sees it. If you love historic sports cars you will love it.
