Ax­e­man’s ‘Turbo Lover’ up for sale

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Ju­das Priest lead gui­tarist, Glenn Tip­ton, is sell­ing the 1985 Porsche 911 Turbo SE that in­spired the plat­inum-sell­ing album Turbo and the suc­cess­ful sin­gle Turbo Lover.

Tip­ton has owned the car from new; he col­lected it from the Stuttgart fac­tory in 1985 while on a Euro­pean tour with the band.

The 300bhp Porsche has been cher­ished by Tip­ton for three decades, but the mu­si­cian ad­mits he hasn’t had much time to drive it re­cently. That’s con­firmed by the car’s odome­ter read­ing of just 14,100 miles.

It’s ex­pected to fetch about £200k at Sil­ver­stone Auctions 21 Oc­to­ber Porsche Sale.
