RECORDS TUMBLE IN RM SOTHEBY'S HISTORIC £21.6M ANNIVERSARY LONDON SALE
The beautiful DB4GT is one of just 75 factory-built examples. Offered in wonderful, matching-numbers condition, and one of just 45 right-hand-drive cars, the featured Aston Martin led a string of 86 vehicles in the glittering evening sale, achieving a world-record sum for a factory-bodied model at auction at a strong £2,408,000.
The Porsche Collection generated enormous interest as soon as it was announced, thanks to its incredible single-owner provenance and the low mileage of the cars on offer. Collectively, the group generated a remarkable £4,726,400 in the packed Battersea Park auction room, far exceeding pre-sale estimates to set numerous new auction benchmarks. Highlights included:
• 1995 Porsche 911 GT2 – £1,848,000, a record for a Porsche 911 GT2 at public auction, breaking the previous record by over one million pounds;
• 1993 Porsche 911 Turbo S Lightweight – £974,400, a world record for a 964 series Porsche 911 at auction;
• 1993 Porsche 911 Carrera RS - £716,800, a new auction benchmark for the model—a price close to half a million pounds more than the previous record; and
• 1995 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Clubsport – £403,200, an auction record for the model.
