Goes to auction a vehicle of these mythical, of which there are few in the world. We speak of a Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution of 1997, which also has the privilege of power roll on the open road. We say the privilege, because this specimen is a model of competition that was subsequently approved for this use. RM Sotheby’s will be responsible for auction in Monaco next month of may.
This spectacular GT1 Evolution it can not be confused with the Porsche 911 GT1 Straßenversion, a series of vehicles created to get the approval of the FIA and therefore could be used on the road. The unit auctioned is unique and comes from the competition, having gotten to win 13 races of the 31 that he played, in addition to obtaining the championship GT canadian three consecutive times.
despite having become in a street car, it keeps its mechanics of racing. This results in an engine boxer six-cylinder and 3.2-liter that developed more than 600 horses. This far exceeds the 544 HP of the GT1 Straßenversion, in addition to being about 100 kg lighter than these. Therefore, we find ourselves before a model very exclusive and also very prestacional.
The auction house had estimated its price at an amount between 2.97 and the $ 3.3 million (between 2.6 and 2.9 million euros) but could be overcome by these figures because this Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution is unique in the world. With this estimated price is located well above of what they have achieved by GT1 Straßenversion, which in other auctions been sold for about 2 million dollars.
