A unique Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution that undertook a conversion to become road-legal has gone under the hammer and fetched an impressive $3.13 million.
This custom one-off Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution shouldn’t be mistaken by the factory introduced 911 GT1 Straßenversion, which had been imagined as street legal from the get go. The example that was auctioned off started its life as a “regular” racing-exclusive toy that was later taken into the specialists’ garage and converted for legal use on the streets. This makes it pretty unique since it’s the only one in the world with the conversion – meaning the auction over the weekend at RM Sotheby’s Monaco event was not really a surprise when the final sum was achieved (2.77 million euros).
This bespoke, road-legal Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution was actually the second most expensive vehicle present at the auction, with the first place being taken by a beautiful 1951 Ferrari 340 America Barchetta by Touring which grabbed €7.28M (approximately $8.23M). By the way, during that auction the main attraction should have been an amazing and equally unique 1968 Ferrari 275 GTS/4 NART Spider by Scaglietti, with an estimated selling price of €19-23M ($21.5-26M), but that car actually failed to sell – most likely due to the huge amount involved.
