A Porsche 911 GT2 RS sports car, which got into a serious accident, was recently sold at Copart auction in Houston, USA. It can no longer be driven on the roads, but there were people who were ready to pay a lot of money for it.
The Conditions Of The Broken Porsche 911 GT2 RS
The car is broken from all sides. The front, rear, and both sides of the body were damaged. The airbags and the belt tensioners were deployed. The expert opinion says that the car cannot be restored and can no longer be allowed on public roads.
This means that if the enthusiast who bought the car restores this Porsche, he will not receive a legal permit to drive it on the public road. The car can only be operated on the track. Another option is to purchase it in this form and sell it for spare parts. The description for the ad says that the engine is not damaged and runs smoothly. Also, the transmission is not damaged.
The car was sold for around $82,000. A brand new car is estimated at more than 360,000 dollars.
Porsche 911 GT2 RS Specifications
When the car was released in 2018, it was the fastest Porsche 911 in history. The engine develops as much as 700 hp and 750 nm. Acceleration to 60 mph takes only 2.8s, and the maximum speed reaches 211 mph.
Such impressive numbers are the result of the painstaking work of German engineers. They took as a basis the unit from the 911 Turbo S modification (580 HP, 750 nm) and modernized it. The new engine was equipped with modified turbochargers. The exhaust system of the GT2 RS is original: it has its own sound, and it itself is made of titanium alloy, which makes it very light.
Earlier, a resident of Great Britain built a very accurate replica of a Porsche 911 in the GT3 RS version. As a basis, he used the middle-aged Boxster, a second-generation model (987), which was produced from 2004 to 2012. The owner told about his creation on Facebook, attaching pictures from various stages of the reincarnation of this car, which looked very realistic and interesting.
