Six-mile 911 for sale
One of only 51 Porsche Carrera RSRs ever made – which has just six miles on the clock – is being sold at RM Sotheby’s 27 May sale at Lake Como, Italy. The dust-covered and virtually unused 1993 Porsche has an estimate of £1.7-£1.9 million – meaning it could become the world’s most expensive 911 sold at auction. The current record-holder is a £1.95 million GT2 that sold last year at another RM Sotheby’s auction.
The RSR spent 25 years sitting in a private collection, remaining untouched until it was brought out of its storage facility to be photographed by the auction house.
It has a special-order red leather interior, unusual purple-centred Speedline alloy wheels and gold brake calipers and is fitted with its original 3.8-litre flat-six engine. This dry-sumped, single-ignition powerplant pumps out 350bhp and delivers its power through a five-speed manual gearbox. An RM Sotheby’s spokesman says: ‘We’re thrilled to offer this magnificent 964 Carrera RSR 3.8 in unused condition, just the way it was completed by the factory. This exceptional and ultraexclusive Porsche is thoroughly and absolutely original.’
