H.R. Owen Ecurie Becomes Exclusive Distributor For Rennsport Porsches

  • H.R. Owen Ecurie – the group’s first multi-franchised dealership in Cheltenham – has become the exclusive distributor for Rennsport Porsches
  • Rennsport is a specialist Porsche restoration and re-creation company that builds the iconic 911 to bespoke specifications
  • Ecurie has two special-edition Rennsport models currently on sale: both are backdated to a 1969 911 like that driven by Steve McQueen in the 1971 movie Le Mans
  • They’re fully restored using exceptional donor cars and finished in iconic colors, one in Slate Grey and the other in Viper Green.

H.R. Owen Ecurie – the group’s first multi-franchised dealership based in Cheltenham – has been exclusively named as a distributor for Rennsport.

Rennsport specialises in restoration and bespoke building of Porsche 911s to individual specifications, taking donor cars and tailoring them to suit Porsche fanatics.

It has not appointed an official distributor in the UK before, but such is H.R. Owen Ecurie’s expertise and experience across numerous high-profile brands that it’s the perfect dealership for Rennsport.

Ecurie is H.R. Owen’s home of the BAC Mono single-seater supercar that also deals in high-profile marques such as 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. H.R. Owen has listed the car at £99,950.

Another fantastic Rennsport creation in the H.R. 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 160mph, the striking Viper Green 911 benefits from a full chrome package and costs £97,950.

Stephan Plant, H.R. Owen Ecurie General Manager, said: “It’s a true honour for H.R. Owen Ecurie to become the first and only distributor for Rennsport in the UK and something the whole team is relishing. Our talented staff have 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, H.R. 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, added: “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.”
