It was then sold to Yamaha via a Mr. K Yoshida and in April 1989 it was sold to a George Raterink of Colorado. The car stayed in Colorado, but now owned by Manfredo Lippmann who purchased the car on May 31, 1989. The Lippmann family has owned this car for 28 years!
This rare 'Rally-Specification' model that has spent most of its life in the hands of collectors and as a result is presented in time warp condition. With just 1,121 miles on the odometer the car is one of the most original RS200 available, the car is even fitted with the original Pirelli tires.
The car is one of the very few cars that left the factory in 'Rally-Specification' with the inclusion of the second gear stick to control the Torque Split Differential. This allows the driver to select 3 options of drive, rear-wheel drive, 50:50 four-wheel drive or 37:63 four-wheel drive. Unlike most road cars that left the factory with the differential gearstick removed and the car being fixed in 37:63 four-wheel drive option.
