Special 80-mile Porsche goes on sale


An example of one of the most exclusive Porsche models is going on sale at Hexagon Classics, with only 80 miles on the clock.

This 911 Sport Classic is one of 250 versions built for 2010 and with right-hand drive, this as-new model is one of the most collectable modern Porsches currently on sale.

Based on the 997 chassis, the Sport Classic has a flat-six 3.8-litre engine producing 402bhp. That is paired with a six-speed manual transmission to help it go from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 188mph.

With only slightly enhanced performance compared to the regular 911, this model is distinctive for its ducktail spoiler, Fuchs-style alloy wheels and sports exhaust system, as well as the sport chassis pack with 20mm ride height reduction. It has also been fitted with a limited slip differential for improved handling.

As well as being fitted with leather trim, a Bose sound system and full infotainment system, the Sport Classic doesn't scrimp on comfort either, so it is truly one of the most sought-after examples of modern Porsches.

Hexagon Classics chairman Paul Michaels said: "The 911 Sport Classic was such a hit with Porsche collectors that the 250-car limited run sold out even before the company officially announced it. It's not hard to see why – it harks back to legendary 911s like the 2.7 RS but mixes those classic cues with some well-chosen modifications to make it a proper enthusiast's machine.

"Finding one with 8,000 miles on the clock would be hard enough, let alone 800 miles – but with a barely believable 80-miles, this is the best 911 Sport Classic on the market anywhere in the world. It looks like it has just rolled off the line in Stuttgart, with not a mark on its paintwork or leather trim. We're privileged to have it in stock and there's no doubt it's the ideal addition to any Porsche collection."

The model is now on sale at the company's flagship showroom in north London.
