Offered by Gooding & Company | Pebble Beach, California | August 15-17, 2014
We’ve featured some of Dan Gurney’s Eagles – mostly open-wheel cars. Well here is a GTP prototype AAR Eagle. It’s powered by a turbocharged Toyota 2.1-liter straight-four making 700-750 horsepower, depending on configuration. AAR and Toyota teamed up in the 80s for sports car racing and the Eagle Mk III dominated the 1992 IMSA GTP season. Between 1991 and 1993, they won 21 of 27 races. This is chassis #004 and its major wins are:
- 1992 12 Hours of Sebring – 1st (with Juan Manuel Fangio II and Andy Wallace)
- 1993 12 Hours of Sebring – 1st (with Fangio II and Wallace)
It also had 12 other victories and has been owned by Fangio II since it stopped racing. It is being offered for sale for the first time and should sell for between $700,000-$1,000,000. Click here for more info.
