The ultimate power move at a historic racing event is to bring a classic race car for the track, and a vintage support vehicle for the paddock. For that, this 1976 Porsche 934/5 and 1977 VW Transporter, painted in matching Martini liveries, are totally perfect. They're headed to the Bonhams auction at Spa Francorchamps, where the pair is expected to sell for around $500,000.

Each car is being sold separately, but it'd be a shame to split them up. That said, it seems these two cars weren't paired up at birth, only being painted in their matching liveries later in life. The 934/5 isn't even an original Martini car, though it's not just some replica built from a production 911 Turbo either.

Originally, this 934/5 was owned by the famous Kremer Racing team before being sold to one-time Nurburgring 24 hour-winner Edgar Dören. This car, chassis #930 6700478, was entered in three German races in 1977 before being stored for a number of years. In 2006, it was restored and prepared for historic racing.

The 934/5, as its name implies, was a sort of midway point between the 934 and the more radical 935, both of which were evolutions of Porsche's famous RSR. The US IMSA GT Championship banned the 935 from competition, so many customer teams fitted their 934s with 935 parts, creating the 934/5. Some European teams did the same, which is how Kremer Racing created the car you see here.

Bonhams doesn't specify which engine this 934/5 has, but most 934s and 935s had turbocharged flat-sixes making around 500 hp. The Volkswagen for sale also has a Porsche engine–a 2.1-liter flat-four from a 914, supposedly making 110 hp. It was converted specifically to be a support vehicle for the 934/5, with a stripped-out interior offering plenty of room for spares and tools.

Bonhams estimates that the Porsche will fetch $350,000-$440,000, with the VW valued at $49,000-$60,000. We sincerely hope these two are bought as a pair.
