The Porsche 911 ST is one of the rarest 911's, only 24 were built for racing in 1970 and 1971. The 911 ST race cars were successfully raced on circuits around the globe and on Le Mans.
This is a very special Porsche 911 built as an ST inspired recreation has only covered 956 miles since its bespoke build by the very well-respected Porsche specialists ‘Riviera Autobody'. The quality of workmanship is exceptional, and the list of work carried out is extensive with no expense spared, it has been an absolute labour of love. The handcrafted fully restored bodywork has been painted in custom Mulberry Red with a bespoke Black Nappa leather interior covering the Renn Sport seats, dashboard and door tops. The specification and work carried out is far too much to list here, but the highlights include full Ohlins damper and suspension, Quaife LSD, steel ST arches, Wevo shifter and rear joint, double bubble roof, custom Billet aluminium fuel and oil filler caps, Campagnola ST style wheels, backdated clocks by Julian Reap, custom drilled door handles, GTR Bluetooth AMP, Rockford Fosgate speakers, Cat 6 tracker and Thatcham approved Cat 1 alarm, plumbed in fire extinguisher and much more. The build quality of this stunning car translates superbly on the road; it delivers great performance with an incredible soundtrack and really gets the driving emotions flowing.
We are informed that mechanically the car is as good as you would expect, having had a full engine strip and rebuild, with the machine work carried out by Classica Modern with reworked heads, valves and guides, all new bearings, 964 camshafts, full gearbox rebuild, SSI manifolds, vapour blasted, new fuel pump, brake calipers, discs and pads, plus much more. The custom-made exhaust box sounds sensational with a crisp and deep sound. The car indeed is still being run-in but has recently had an engine oil change conducted at a specialist service centre. In the history file is a build sheet from Riviera Autobody. If you are after a unique and exquisite 911 that will get amazing attention wherever it goes, then look no further, it is truly sensational.
