HR Owen Ecurie – Rennsport Porsche
Britain’s leading luxury motor dealer, HR Owen, has been named as a distributor for Rennsport. Ecurie, which is HR Owen’s first multi-franchised dealership based in Cheltenham will cater to dealing in the restored Porsches. Rennsport is the go to place for Porsche fanatics, especially those who fancy classic or vintage cars. It restores special and bespoke editions of Porsche 911s and customises them to suit the tastes of individuals.
Rennsport, which is not affiliated with the Porsche company but works independently, has never appointed an official distributor in the UK before. However, HR Owen is known for its expertise and experience across several high profile brands such as Bentley, Bugatti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Rolls-Royce. HR Owen’s impressive portfolio makes it the obvious and perfect dealership for Rennsport.
Meanwhile, Ecurie is HR Owen’s home of the BAC Mono single-seater supercar that also deals in Ferrari, McLaren, Bentley, Aston Martin and Lotus.
The Cheltenham dealership currently has two Rennsport Porsches for sale; the first of which draws Hollywood inspiration from Steve McQueen’s 1971 film, Le Mans.
Backdated and rebuilt from a 1989 Carrera Sport Coupe, the car harks back to McQueen’s 1969 personal car from the movie and comes complete with a 3.2-litre engine as well as fully galvanised bodywork finished in stunning Slate Grey with grey decals.
The Rennsport Porsche has been listed by HR Owen at £99,950.
Another incredible Rennsport creation in the HR Owen stable is a 1986 911 Carrera Sport Coupe which has been comprehensively rebuilt and backdated to the iconic 1969 design with specified upgrades. Made to touring specifications with a power hike making it capable of topping 258kph, the striking Viper Green 911 benefits from a full chrome package and costs £97,950.
Commenting on the partnership, Stephan Plant, HR Owen Ecurie’s General Manager, said: “It’s a true honour for HR Owen Ecurie to become the first and only distributor for Rennsport in the UK and something the whole team is relishing. Our talented staff has exemplary knowledge of the brands we represent, and we are perfectly positioned to continue bringing these unique creations to Porsche enthusiasts. As the UK’s leading luxury dealer group, HR Owen is perfectly positioned to distribute Rennsport’s stunning cars, which have already been the subject of plenty of interest from our clients.”
Paul Cockell, Managing Director of Rennsport, summed up: “We are pleased to be working exclusively with H.R. Owen Ecurie, enabling our clients the benefit of their sales and pre-purchase expertise helping the customer tailor the whole package from start to finish. Every car is bespoke, meaning every deal is bespoke.”
