This particular car was built in 2007, commissioned by John Chester, who was very good friends with Porsche aficionado Paul Howles, who owned numerous Porsche 911 race cars including and original RSR. This car was sent to Germany for chassis work and built up by Knoll Motorsport of Munich Germany. The engine was built by Porsche 911 performance specialist Supertec Performance in the USA. Since then, the car has been enjoyed on the road and on track days and sprints.
A very nice example, built to Appendix K FIA specification and ready to be enjoyed.

The whale tale takes us back to the golden ear of Porsche competition cars
The cockpit is raw and the driving position is comfortable for either road use or if race use.
The first glens of the engine bay shows twin plug ignition and large airbus that we are so familiar with Porsche race cars. It really is a piece of art.
When first introduced it sold far more readily than the expensive 911 and in so doing ensured that Porsche’s balance sheets remained healthy so they were able to continue to thrive and prosper in those early years of the business.
The 550 Maranello marked Ferrari's return to a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout for its 2-seater 12-cylinder model, 23 years after the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. When realised the car commended great reviews with the likes of Nikki Lauda saying “You can forget the 512. No comparison. This is the first modern Ferrari, and the first I would really want to own.”
