The last of six RS Spyders built for the 2007 racing season will soon be hitting the auction block. The vehicle is largely considered to be one of the most successful prototype racing cars in Porsche history.
The Spyder boasts a Porsche-designed V8 engine, cranking out 478 horsepower and 10,000 RPM, as it was built specifically for the track.
Originally sold to Jacksonville, Florida-based CET Solaroli Motorsports, the current owner describes the RS Spyder as an “extremely exciting and remarkably user-friendly prototype racing car. The thrill of shifting this engine at 10,000 rpm and taking turns flat out in fifth and six gear, with complete control, is like none I’ve ever experienced. The brakes and aerodynamics are just phenomenal. This is the last prototype racing car a collector will be able to buy from Porsche, and you don’t need a team of people to run it. If you positively and absolutely have the need for speed, this RS Spyder is the cure!”
No bid price is listed for the 2007 Porsche RS Spyder, but many are expecting the collector’s item to go for upwards of seven figures. For more on the ride, follow here.
