Silverstone Auctions Race Retro Live Online Auction will see this exceptional 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera MFI Safari Rally Car offered in their first sale of 2021.
The East African safari winning Tuthill Porsche 911, started life in January 1975 as a relatively rare Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 MFI Coupe where it was then converted into a rally car in the early 1990’s and campaigned extensively by legendary Irish tarmac rally driver, Billy Coleman.
The car was hired in 1998 for The RAC Historic rally by Silverstone Auctions Managing Director, Nick Whale. Nick realised the cars potential and decided to then own the car, going onto win the 1999 Safety Devices Rally Challenge outright. Not only this, but also The British Historic Rally Championship held in 2000 over eight rounds, four tarmac and four gravel events. Every time the car went out, it was successful.
The car was sold in May 2002 and rallied for the next decade before being converted by Tuthills, into a full house East African Safari spec rally car. Much work was then done to this superb car at the time in which it has continually benefited from Tuthills ongoing maintenance and improvements.
