Just 250 units have been produced as part of the 911 Sport Classic series, and this example might be the most pristine of them all thanks to a very clean odometer reading just 80 miles on the clock.
If your special 911 series is the 997 generation, there aren’t many other options to find the greatest of them all aside from this Sport Classic, a limited series that encompassed just 250 units that were all using the Carrera S as their basis. The classic looks come with Fuchs-style alloy wheels and twin-domed roof, a ducktail rear spoiler and the wide body of the all-wheel-drive version – and of course at the time of its introduction the car was already sold-out before getting to be seen by the general public. Now this particular unit is available at Hexagon Classics’ flagship showroom from north London, and this Sport Classic Grey with grey racing stripes is “perhaps the best example in the world,” due to the very low mileage.
It’s a right-hand-drive 911 Sport Classic, number 142/250 and it has everything intact. This limited series used the naturally aspirated flat-six 3.8-liter engine that was massaged to 402 horsepower (300 kilowatts) and 310 pound-feet (420 Newton-meters) of torque – delivered to the rear axle using a six-speed, short-shift manual gearbox. Other amenities included a lowered sport chassis pack, a limited slip differential and carbon ceramic brakes with yellow calipers.
