When the rs500 program finished at Eggenberger there was a huge amount of left over brand new parts , Included was a 40% finished brand new motorsport bodyshell .
Over the years the shell and parts have been through a few hands until finally being shipped from no other that ‘Dick Johnson racing’ to our workshops here in the UK .
One of our customers jumped at the chance to purchase the shell and parts and asked us to finish the prep and build the last ever Eggenberger rs500 ( how could we refuse )
The car will carry the iconic Texaco livery , as this is the most famous of all the Eggenberger liveries
So we started the build earlier this year , we hope you enjoy the build and keep checking in for updates as we go .
Thanks to Paddock 10 paint for doing a fantastic job for us with painting the shell once we had finished the fabrication and roll cage install here at PLR
The car will be exactly as the cars were built in period with all brand new Eggenberger parts that we carry on the shelf . We have had all the correct specification Eggenberger suspension parts remanufactured in the latest high grade materials , and although we have period brand new items we will be fitting our own brand new items .
This special build will be raced once completed ( no show queen here ) so a very exciting time for us and the owner of the project .
