A 1995 Porsche 993 Turbo Cabriolet will go under the hammer at Coys' Spirit of Motoring Auction on October 17, and it can count one very special owner on the V5C – the Sultan of Brunei.
This particular Turbo Cabriolet would be rare even without the royal connection. One of just 14 built, it's the only example in existence with right-hand drive. Porsche's 993 model was not intended to be produced as a Cabriolet, but when German dealership chain MAHHAG requested it, Porsche built those 14 cars.
Not only is it a super-rare example, but it's in immaculate condition. This 993 has been part of a cherished collection since 2009, and presents with just 9,000km (5,600 miles) on the clock.
Initially, the car would have retailed for around $176,000 (£132,500). Chris Routledge, CEO of Coys, said: "These exclusive cars were fitted with unique features, including 17-inch cup alloy wheels, electrically operated 'Komfort' seats, rear spoiler, air conditioning, and a special four-brand exhaust system, amongst others.
"The Porsche certificate of authenticity for chassis number 8513 extends to two pages in order to cover the many options fitted."
