Looking very much of its time and fittingly, for an ’80s machine, in Guards Red, this DP Motorsport modified Kremer 935 lookalike is going up for auction in late November at Historics’ Mercedes Benz World sale.
RARE RHD DP MOTORSPORT 935 GOES TO AUCTION Believed to be the 1986 Earls Court Motorfair car
As is often the way with low production machines from a pre digital era, information is slightly speculative, although there’s no doubting its DP Motorsport history. It comes with a comprehensive build sheet and is believed to be the only RHD car produced. As such it is believed to have been used as a display car by DP Motorsport’s UK agent, Roy Catlin, and was shown at the 1986 Earls Court Motor Fair.
Based on a 930 Turbo, DP Motorpsort used Kremer designed panels from the original Kremer K3 935 racer, shedding 550kgs from the weight of a standard 930 Turbo.
This particular example features a 3.3-litre, flat-six turbo with competition heads, camshafts and polished parts, stainless steel intercooler and oil cooler. With variable boost control it produces between 400bhp and 440bhp. The gearbox is a close ratio four-speed and DP Motorsport 15in, five spoke comp wheels cover 930 Turbo vented discs. It still wears its period Pirelli P7 tyres.
Interior wise it features fully electric leather seats and numerous other luxurious niceties and, with just 23,500-miles on the clock, is described as being in “mint” condition. Fancy it? Well it’s certainly an interesting curio and would turn heads. Value? Historics reckon between £145,000–£170,000, but it only takes two determined bidders to drive it along. The Historics sale is at Mercedes World on November 24th. For the online catalogue and full details go to: historics.co.uk
