Two special 1985 Porsche 911 Turbo SE Flatnoses are being auctioned by Silverstone Auctions at the company’s sale on October 25.
These particular 911 Turbo SE Flatnoses are the first and the last of the 50 examples produced for the British market.

It is painted in Silver Metallic and includes the rare red Recaro racing seats as well as a number of engine upgrades resulting in 330 hp rather than the standard 300 hp. The first 911 Turbo SE Flatnose also includes a custom front spoiler and new oil cooler.
