None other than Hurley Haywood sat behind the wheel of the famous BRUMOS 911 RSR with the number 59 in 1973. With this RSR he took the first of his five 24h of Daytona wins. The original car was shipped back to Germany to undergo tests, but was then later destroyed and lost forever.
With its 2.8litre air-cooled, naturally aspirated, flat six engine, the 1973 911 RSR was a significant step forward when compared to the 911 RS of the time. The RSR was notably wider in the front and the rear compared to standard 911s and the fibreglass front bumper had the signature single central air intake for the large oil cooler, which would allow the rear engine to produce 280bhp at 8000 rpm and let the RSR sprint from 0-100km/h in just 4 seconds.
These impressive figures made it to a true legend in endurance racing, and set the standard for the 911’s ongoing success in motorsport.
This fine 1:18 scale model of the 1973 Porsche 911 RSR has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops using detailed colour and material specifications, and original CAD data supplied directly from the drawing office of Porsche. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
Every Amalgam 1:18 scale model is supplied in a luxury black box with a protective outer carrying sleeve. Each model is mounted on a polished black acrylic base protected by a clear acrylic dust cover. The base holds a booklet containing the certificate of authenticity along with information and collateral material about the car. The model title and original branding is displayed on a polished stainless steel plaque mounted at the front end of the base.
