Custom 1979 Porsche 911 SC RWB Small Block

We are pleased to introduce “Chrome Temple”, custom-built 1979 RWB Porsche 911 SC. This 911 was outfitted with a 500HP+ small block V8 engine prior to being treated to a full RWB widebody transformation at the hands of automotive artisan Akira Nakai. Having had its engine fully rebuilt within the last 200 miles, this one-of-a-kind RWB build is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Australia showing approximately 3k miles on the odometer.

Upon the commission of this build in 2016, this 911 was professionally painted in Marlboro Fluro-Orange before Nakai-san was flown into California to personally install the Royal Widebody Kit, RWB’s widest and most aggressive variant. The car was then treated to a full HEXIS Satin Orange Chrome vinyl wrap, resulting in a truly eye-catching finish. Other exterior details include easily removable vinyl “Chrome Temple” graphics and custom 3-piece Kompression wheels in white which feature an aggressive deep dish and brushed floating spokes. These wheels measure 18”x13”, 18”x9” and come dressed in brand new Toyo R888c tires.

This 911 highlights a full Momo race-inspired interior that showcases Simpson harnesses and Alcantara upholstery. Other modifications include a full roll cage, a quick-release Momo steering wheel, digital temperature monitors, RUF dials and an MSD 6AL Digital Ignition Controller which has been mounted on the rear seat delete panel. The interior has also been lined with Dynamat sound dampening insulation which helps to reduce cabin noise and vibration. The seller confirms all electrical components and accessories to be fully functional, including the RUF gauges.

Prior to the RWB conversion, this 911 was outfitted with a NASCAR inspired 400ci Chevy small block V8 engine rated at approximately 500 HP. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 915 5-speed manual transmission rebuilt by the specialists at Renegade Hybrids in Las Vegas. Powerful Brembo brakes have been installed along with fully adjustable Eibach suspension and a custom exhaust system with dual Cup style tips. The seller states that the engine was fully rebuilt within the last 200 miles and the car is said to be in excellent driving condition.

Originating on the streets and racetracks of Japan, RWB or Rauh-Welt Begriff, has become known as one of the foremost Porsche customizers. Recognized for their incredibly wide stance and signature bolt-on fenders, RWB widebody kits offer aggressive styling for the passionate enthusiast. Many owners opt to have the creator of RWB, Nakai-san, install the kit personally to ensure perfect fitment.

The sale of this show-stopping RWB 911 will include one master key. Do not miss out on this incredibly elusive opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind V8 RWB 911 created by Akira Nakai himself.

    @Geoff Hi Geoff, there are several quality carriers between Sydney and the US (most into CA). I have shipped both ways with an average cost (freight/handling) of $2/$2.5k max.
    I am happy to help arrange/manage for buyer.

  • Geoff 1 year, 11 monthsago

    Who ships between Australia and the US? Any idea what shipping costs would be? I haven't ever shipped a car internationally.

  • Chrishallxx 2 yearsago

    Bid in the amount of $50,000

  • 86convdrvr (registered bidder) 2 yearsago

    @CurtGT3RS I have imported many cars, should be around 3%. Hope that helps.

  • CurtGT3RS (registered bidder) 2 yearsago

    Regarding shipping to USA - are there any import duties or fees that must be paid?

  • LexPedersen (seller) 2 yearsago

    @Bazzz69 hi, Renegade Hybrids in Las Vegas produce the conversion kit and did this particular conversion themselves. We then went and fabricated stronger custom braces and increased the rear strut tower heights by close to 2” to allow sufficient travel at this low ride hight.

  • Bazzz69 2 yearsago

    Is there a kit for the v8 conversion or did you have to custom modify and engineer?

    @993David Thanks David, I did watch your beautiful car, congrats. Total build, before donor car was well into the triple figures. The kit alone, sent from Japan was $35k (in a box). I was lucky enough to have the support of many of the component providers along the way as they all loved the concept.

  • LexPedersen (seller) 2 yearsago

    @CurtGT3RS Hi Curt. I provided the PCAR Team with photos of build and pre-wrap but they didn't get uploaded (may be a limit). I will ask them now to post. Hold tight and thanks for the message.

  • LexPedersen (seller) 2 yearsago

    @Chuck246cp Many thanks Chuck!

  • 993David (registered bidder) 2 yearsago

    I just sold my 76 renegade v8 911. It is such a great platform. The buyer will not be disappointed! @chuck246cp I would also be interested in the cost of the build, just as a casual observer.

  • CurtGT3RS (registered bidder) 2 yearsago

    Can you post pics of the car/paint before it was wrapped?

  • Chuck246cp (registered bidder) 2 yearsago

    Mr Lex, I commend you for pushing the envelope on this car. I've owned and own many porsches over the years and frankly think most of them are pretty ordinary. One can, however, get a little bit frisky and come up with something "special", as you have done. For example, I have a turbo that would knock your sox off. This being said, your car is too much for my personal taste , a bit over the top. However, it is folks like you that push for "far out" that bring about change. Good job. ps. I would love to see numbers of how much you have in this car. Good job and good lluck!!

  • CMXCVI 2 yearsago

    @LexPedersen I love this car. I think it's awesome. Variety is the spice of life and this 911 is about as unique as they come. GLWTS!

  • LexPedersen (seller) 2 yearsago

    @CMXCVI I've never been one to run with the pack! If you're going to do a V8 in a 911 (it already had one as you'll see), do it right! I have several matching number Porsche's so I'm not a complete rascal.

  • PCARMARKET 2 yearsago

    New photos have been added to the listing gallery.

    @mobileuniverse I don't know if they'll be more upset over the RWB treatment or the fact that this car is now water-cooled, haha!

  • LexPedersen (seller) 2 yearsago

    The purists are gonna go nuts! Prepare for the comments!

  • LexPedersen (seller) 2 years, 1 monthago

    @CurtGT3RS I was told the built 915 was sufficient for this set up. The Hybrid guys did this work prior to me purchasing/building

  • LexPedersen (seller) 2 years, 1 monthago

    @CurtGT3RS Hi, I've sent cars too and from the US (Cali) and the process is relatively easy. Finding the right carrier is key and I'm happy to help support/arrange the logistics and ensure the car is treated correctly right up to port here.

  • CurtGT3RS (registered bidder) 2 years, 1 monthago

    Also - can anyone provide insight into importing a car from Australia?

  • CurtGT3RS (registered bidder) 2 years, 1 monthago

    Why was the 915 transmission used? Can it handle 500hp? More details on this choice please.

  • 808632911 2 years, 1 monthago

    Any issues with registration? Am interstate
