World’s Only Street-Legal Porsche 911 GT1 Evo For Sale

A Porsche flagship supercar of the ’90s, developed for racing and registered for use of public roads, is in the search of a new home.

Believed to be the only ex-race car with road registration in existence, chassis number GT1 993-117 will hit the auction block at the RMSothebys event in Monaco, on May 14, where the winning bidder is expected to pay between €2.7 and €3 million ($2.98-3.31 million equivalent) before being able to take the new ride home.

The car, which is one of only 14 held in public hands, doesn’t come without a pedigree, as it nabbed the gold medal in 13 races out of 31 throughout its lifetime, and it also managed to win the Canadian GT Championship three times, between 1999 and 2001. Its list of events also include the Daytona 24 Hour race.

Besides the 1997 911 GT1 Evo, which has never been offered for sale publicly, RM Sotheby’s Monaco auction will also see the display of more iconic vehicles that include a 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540 K Cabriolet and a 1932 Horch 670 Cabriolet, both valued at roughly the same level as the Porsche racer, along with Niki Lauda’s debut March 711 grand prix racer, expected to fetch around $550,000.
