When it comes to classic cars, there are the icons and the legendary. Today we get a look at a legendary vehicle with iconic appeal. Every car has a unique history, but nothing quite like Pablo Escobar’s 1974 Porsche 911 RSR Coupe. Porsche built this special, classic car as a factory-prepped race car. The 911 RSR was driven by two-time Formula One and Indy 500 champion Emerson Fittipaldi.
Fittipaldi raced the vehicle at the inaugural International Race of Champions, which was intended to be the all-star event of motorsports. Emerson drove the one-of-12 Porsche 911 RSR’s in the race, though he didn’t win. The car eventually ended up in Pablo Escobar’s collection, where the kingpin drove it in various races in Colombia. After Escobar’s run ended, the car was purchased by Roger Penske and restored. Now the 911 RSR is back up for sale, arriving in mechanically perfect condition and ready to race.
