When you work at Bring A Trailer, a lot of important things come up. The most recently completed sale of the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT is alright to top. They were able to sell the vehicle at $1,902,000. It will shoot to the beginning of the auction site’s hit parade to turn into the most expensive vehicle sold on Bring A Trailer. Before this, a 1961 Mercedes-Benz 300SL had been sold for $1.4 million dollars, back in July 2021.
A Porsche Carrera GT Sold on Bring A Trailer For That Much??
The Carrera GT selling at that price makes sense. The purist machine is likely to be the last analog supercar and yet it’s quite easily the most exotic. The 5.7- liter V-10 is aspirated with titanium connecting rods while also using dry-sump lubrication and an 8,400-rpm redline. It can be mated to a six-speed manual transaxle with a twin-plate ceramic clutch and the rear wheels with no stability control. Without traction control.
It comes from the Le Mans prototype as a carbon-fiber central tub and front structure with carbon-fiber bodywork. The suspension is able to feature pushrod-actuated horizontal coil-over shocks with carbon-ceramic brake rotors.
The Carrera GT has such interesting looks. And the specs are also really cool with ultralow mileage. Specifically, it has about 780 miles. That’s all it really possesses.
You can also tell how rare it is in the United States, being that only 42 of them were in Guards Reds and had been imported to the United States in such limited supply. This being versus the original 103 Black ones and the 362 GT Silver ones. There’s also a wood shift knob and fitted luggage intact. What rationality does this play into for Bring A Trailer? Loads. Sales like these can only increase for Porsche Carrera GTs on the website.
