The sports car (around 120,000 km on the clock) will be auctioned for the first time during the Bonhams sale “The Great Brands of the World in Paris”, which will take place online from March 3 to 10, 2021. Technically, the 911 is powered by a 3.6-liter Carrera 2 engine developing 250 horsepower and a top speed of 260 km / h.

“Known to fans, this Porsche was seen regularly during Diego Maradona’s many back and forth trips to training and also proved that his right foot was as dominant on the accelerator as his left foot was on the ball, since ‘he was stopped at the wheel, after running a red light and driving 180 km / h in the city center, “Bonhams recalls.

The estimate of this Porsche 911 (only 1,200 units) is included between 150,000 and 200,000 euros. All photos on the Bonhams website !
