Six-mile 911 for sale

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

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.’
