Porsche Carrera GT starring at Silverstone Race Retro sale

A rare 2004 Porsche Carrera GT will be the star of the show at Silverstone Auction’s Race Retro sale, where it is expected to fetch between £400,000-£450,000.

Only 1270 Carrera GTs were ever made, making this example all the more special.  Originally priced at £330,000, the car was first delivered to Champion Porsche of Pompano Beach, Florida, before making its way to the UK in 2009.

Finished in Silver Metallic, it has almost all the optional extras, including a leather luggage set.  The powerful, 604bhp 5.7-litre V10 delivers 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds and a blistering top speed of 206mph.

The Carrera GT, along with a number of other great supercars, will go under the hammer at the Race Retro sale, Stoneleigh Park on the 27th-28th February.www.silverstoneauctions.com
