Riviera Blue 1995 Porsche 911 GT2 sells for £1,848,000


A 1995 Porsche 911 GT2 has sold for £1,848,800, almost £1 million above its top estimate, at the latest RM Sotheby's auction in London.

Sold as part of a private collection of Porsches, this special GT2 is one of only 57 road-worthy versions and has just 12,730 kilometres on the clock.

The 3.6-litre, twin turbocharged, straight six engine produces 430bhp and had as much power as the track-going versions that were successful in competition during the 1990s.

This model was unmodified from purchase and came with its original powertrain, while being kept in superb condition.

Listed for a price between £750,000 and £850,000, the Porsche 911 GT2 was sold for £998,800 over the top estimate, in an auction that saw many other rare Porsches sold for more than was estimated at the top end of the scale.

A 911 Turbo S Lightweight had a top estimate of £250,000, but sold for £974,400. The 180mph Turbo S had only done 6,303km.

A rare 356 Speedster sold for £229,600, which was one of only 19 right-hand drive examples, while a 993 RS Clubsport sold for £403,200 - £143,200 over its top estimate.

Also sold was an immaculate 1960 Aston Martin DB4GT, which went for £2,408,000, a rare 1967 Maserati Mistral 4.0-litre Spyder made £739,200 (£89,200 over the top estimate) and a limited edition Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II designed by Pininfarina sold for £1,288,000.
