A road legal Porsche 911 GT1 Evo has been sold for $3.1 million in Monaco!
The $3.1 million hammer price was seen at the RM Sotheby’s auction in Monaco over the weekend. The 911 GT1 was a homologation special built by Porsche. This particular version is the GT1 Evolution, which served as a midpoint in the GT1’s development cycle.
The car was fully restored in 2014–2015 by Lanzante Motorsports in the United Kingdom at a cost in excess of £300,000 and has been run for less than two hours since. It appeared at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed in company with Porsche’s Le Mans-winning Type 919 Hybrid.
Most recently, a GT1 sold at the Gooding & Company auction in Amelia Island in 2012 for $1.26 million.
The GT1 Evo is powered by a 3,164 cc air- and water-cooled horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with two KKK turbochargers. Total power is well above 600 horsepower.
All of that power is sent to the wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.
