    The Jade green RS is described as :"exceptionally rare and original factory colour"
    But being an Silumin engine case makes it even more rare.

    Auction Description:

    * One of just 200 lightweight "Sport" versions.
    * Matching numbers.
    * Period racing history: 18 races traced with photographic documentation.
    * Originally owned by Italian racing driver Giorgio Taufer
    * Complete restoration 2005-2010
    * Porsche certificate of authenticity

    The Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight chassis number 9113601443 is one of the 200 lightweight versions, produced in 1973 and delivered in Italy in June of the same year; the car has always remained in Italy. The car had seven previous owners and a Group 3 racing history with the driver Giorgio Taufer, a protagonist of the S. Martino di Castrozza rally. With Taufer, the car ran the 1974-'77 seasons, hitting three overall victories and five class victories, including the GR.3 1975 and 1977 European championship stages. The restoration was made by the Melli brothers of Pentacar in Italy, a company specializing in racing Porsche; the restoration lasted five years between 2005 and 2010; since the end of the works, the car has travelled just over 2,000 km. Melli brothers reset the odometer at the end of the restoration. The car has matching numbers, and it is painted in the classic white Grand Prix colour with blue lettering and rims; the car has the characteristics of the Lightweight versions, with the lightened glasses of Glaverbel, the Recaro bucket seats with manual adjustment (with optional headrests a request), smooth door panels, no clock, glove drawer and no carpet in the interior. The bodywork has fibreglass bumpers and rubber hooks for closing the engine bonnet. In the front compartment, the carpet and all the sound-absorbing material are not present (another feature of the Lightweight). The car is equipped with the optional limited-slip differential from the Carrera 2.7 RS range; an additional engine oil cooler has been installed in the appropriate front compartment. By choice of the owner was inserted the opening mechanism of the engine hood and a double brake pump. The car comes with ASI and FIVA certificate and Porsche's certificate of origin.

    The Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS Lightweight or Sport was one of the available versions of the Porsche Carrera 2.7 RS, the sports model of the 911 range presented in Paris in 1972 and the first Porsche to bear the name "Carrera". The Lightweight was identified with the code M471 and shared the mechanics of the Carrera 2.7 RS, but benefited from some changes to reduce weight, such as the fibreglass bumpers, lighter glass, the absence of rear seats and door panels; thanks to the adoption of these and other details, the weight dropped from 1,100 kg to just 960 kg, making the 2.7 RS Lightweight a thoroughbred sports car capable of reaching 245 km / h, and shooting from 0-100 km/h in just 5.4 ". The Carrera 2.7 RS had a huge commercial success; instead of the 500 units originally planned, Porsche produced 1500 units to satisfy the request, of which 200 in the "Lightweight" version. The Carrera 2.7 RS allowed Porsche to homologate the model in the GT category and collected excellent racing results in both the 2.7 and 2.8 RSR versions. The competition model derived directly from the Carrera 2.7 RS.
