Top-price Porsche

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Prestige -

THE record price for a clas­sic Porsche has jumped to $4.5 mil­lion af­ter the sale of a rare 917-se­ries racer by Bon­hams & But­ter­fields in the US. The car, orig­i­nally raced at Le Mans in the clas­sic Gulf Oil colours used by Steve McQueen in his movie Le Mans, was sold on the same day that a rare 1930 Mercedes-Benz SS went un­der the ham­mer for $2.85 mil­lion.
