A one-of-a-kind Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution converted for street use was auctioned for a cool $3.13 million.
Not to be confused with the 911 GT1 Straßenversion which came out with road-legal status, this car right here started life as a track-only vehicle and was later on converted for road use. It’s actually the only one in the world in this configuration, so it should not come as a surprise it went under the hammer over the weekend at RM Sotheby’s Monaco sale for the pretty sum of €2.77M (about $3.13M).
The unique, road-legal Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution (about which you can read HERE) was the second most expensive car sold during the auction. The top spot was occupied by a lovely 1951 Ferrari 340 America Barchetta by Touring which fetched no less than €7.28M (approximately $8.23M).
During the same auction, an amazing 1968 Ferrari 275 GTS/4 NART Spider by Scaglietti was up for grabs, but it failed to sell. It was actually the main star of the auction since it had an estimated selling price of €19-23M ($21.5-26M), but that proved to be too much for the gathered bidders.
Here is a top ten of the most valuable cars sold at the auction:
10. 1968 Ferrari Dino 206 GT - €560,000;
9. 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Touring - €610,400;
