Porsche Carrera GT leads Race Retro sale

Published 03 February 2016

A 2004 Porsche Carrera GT will headline a selection of supercars at Silverstone Auctions’ Race Retro sale. The car, which is one of only 1270 built by Porsche, could fetch up to £450,000 when it goes under the hammer at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire on the 27-28 of February.

Finished in GT Silver Metallic with a black leather interior, it was delivered new on 15 April, 2004, by main dealer Champion Porsche of Pompano Beach, Florida. The specification includes air-conditioning, CD player with Bose HiFi, Porsche Online Pro Satellite Navigation, adjustable steering column, electric windows, buckets seats, and carbon ceramic brakes with yellow calipers.

It also comes with a luggage set including a leather suit carrier, a leather briefcase bag and a leather day bag. The car was imported to the UK in 2009 by a collector in Gloucester who kept the car before it was purchased by businessman and F1 team principal, Gerard Lopez.

The current vendor took ownership of this exquisite supercar in September 2013 when it had covered a mere 12,737 miles, and immediately sent the car for a full service at Porsche Reading at a cost of £8305.

In 2014, the car was sent to RUF Porsche in Germany and was fitted with a suspension raising system at the cost of 11,900 Euros. The last full service was carried out in November 2015 at Porsche Reading, when the recorded mileage was 18,018.

Commenting on the car, managing director of Silverstone Auctions, Nick Whale said, ‘This is a beautiful car and with its Italian counterpart and competitor from the era, the Ferrari Enzo, fetching premium prices, the Carrera GT is a car to be taken seriously. This wonderful example from a private collector is one not to be missed.’
