Bonhams rare Porsche 911 R

Bonhams auction house has announced the sale of an extremely rare Porsche 911 R. The car will be sold at public auction on Friday 7th October.

Bonhams is the only auction house to ever be able to offer a Porsche 911 R at public sale, as all other examples are off the market and highly sought after. The 911 R is considered a purist’s dream and the sale offers car enthusiasts the rare chance to own one.

The 911 R runs on a 4.0-litre naturally aspirated 6-cylinder engine producing 500bhp. The 911 R is capable of 0-60mph in less than 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 200mph. The car is fitted with a bespoke six-speed manual transmission.

This beautiful example, no. 135 was delivered in July 2016 to its first and only owner, and will be sold with 52km on the clock. No. 135 features Porsche’s Sports Chrono Package. The exterior is finished in white and green in homage to the R’s historic livery. The interior is finished with a two-tone black and brown leather design.

This very special car will go to public auction in Bonhams Zoute Sale in Belgium on October 7th. It is estimated to go for €250,000-€350,000, however due to the high level of interest in the car it could reach €500,000-600,000.
