    The Bonhams site provides the answers re: litigation that I had been looking for.
    Copied straight from the Bonhams 'for sale' write-up:

    "Subsequently another well-known Porsche-world figure found a purchaser for the car - the current vendor - in the USA. With the re-emergence there of this perfectly genuine ex-Martini Racing/Brumos/Rebaque/Balliva 'R7' - the owner of the supposedly reconstructed 'parts-based'' vehicle then initiated litigation to bolster his rival claim to this car's historic identity. This litigation was vigorously resisted, yet ground on for some seven years until May 23 this year when the case was ordered dismissed by a New York court, following a settlement. As part of that settlement the replica owner was permitted to keep his car but agreed to make no further claim to ownership of 'R7' - while continuing to represent his vehicle as "...a reconstruction of the long tail RSR, currently presented in Viceroy livery raced by the Rebaque Rojas team..." - only.

    As part of the background to this litigation - to establish authenticity, as far back as April, 2016, 'R7' as offered here had been transported to Porsche Classic in Germany where it was inspected by the manufacturer's veteran senior engineer and former works team manager, Norbert Singer.

    He had supervised construction and preparation of the factory's Martini Racing RSRs in 1973, so was uniquely placed to comment on the cars' originality. After a full day of careful examination, covering every part of this car, Mr Singer positively identified it as RSR 911 '360 0686' (aka 'R7') and provided a formal statement to that effect, comprehensively confirming this body shell's historic identity."
