Porsche Panorama is the official publication of the Porsche Club of America, and the 180-page slick-paper magazine goes out to 120,000 club members every month. Amalgam are proud to be featured in the June 2019 print edition with an in-depth feature on our 1:18 scale 1973 Brumos Porsche 911 RSR.
'Here we have the Amalgam Collection’s scale-model tribute to the most iconic Brumos Racing car of all, the 1973 Porsche 911 RSR that Hurley Haywood and his mentor Peter Gregg drove to win the 1973 Daytona 24. We’re especially impressed because this eighteenth-scale replica features meticulous motorsport quality engineering and craftsmanship.'
Each one of this Limited Edition of 200 models has been individually signed by Hurley Haywood. Hurley sat behind the wheel of the BRUMOS 911 RSR #59 in 1973 to take the first of his five 24h of Daytona wins. The original car was shipped back to Germany to undergo tests but was later destroyed and lost forever. In order to ensure accuracy in the details of the model we have had the invaluable assistance of the Porsche Museum with archive images and feedback. With its 2.8litre air-cooled, naturally aspirated, flat six engine, the 1973 911 RSR was a significant step forward when compared to the 911 RS of the time.
