Near-new 2010 Porsche 997 911 GT3 RS at auction

This 550-miler has been stored in a bubble for most of its life

With only 550 miles, or 885km on the clock, this Porsche 911 GT3 RS is almost new.

What’s more, it’s spent a good portion of its life literally wrapped in a bubble – a dehumidified bubble at that.

It’s up for grabs in a rather impressive Bonhams auction, which also features Astons and Bentleys formerly owned by the likes of Paul McCartney and Elton John.

The Porsche, however, has had no such fame, being stored away since its odometer clicked over its 500th.

This rendered its 331kW 3.8-litre flat six dormant, along with the 6-speed manual it’s mated to.

As you’d expect, everything’s original from the Guards Red roll cage to the colour coded floor mats.

Bonhams says the car was recently serviced at a London Porsche specialist, and has all of its documentation and tools.

For a quite reasonable estimate of AUD $440,000 to $520,000, this Gt3 RS is set to sell on December 2nd.

Alongside it, however, are a few other rarities.

A 1986 Ford RS200 Evolution, with 447kW+ engine built by Geoff Page Racing in the UK, is set to sell for somewhere between $310,000 and $420,000.

It’s one of the rarer Group B cars born of the ‘80s, and this one comes with “a substantial amount of documentation together with the original leather-bound owner's manual.”

Next, one of only 400 Ferrari Enzos will go under the hammer, this one built in 2004. It’s Ferrari Classiche certified, and has only 7800km on the clock.

Aston Martin DB7 Zagato
The auctioneers’ estimate however, isn’t so low. $3,100,000 to $3,800,000 will do it, says Bonhams.

Finally, a rare Aston Martin DB7 by Zagato, one of only 99, will sell for between $560,000 and $630,000 if Bonhams is correct.

Its 6.0-litre V12 has only travelled 14,300km, all of which is fully documented.
