In the show the way-up to RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba sale, the auction house revealed it had some melodious amazing machines lined up. Among them was a 1993 Porsche 993 RSR 3.8 that was not ever driven 6 miles. Three of this generation’s most potent hypercars also were slated to go across the outline: a Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach, a McLaren P1 GTR, and a Ferrari LaFerrari. Interestingly, at worst two of these four cars sold, but they went for hefty sums.

The all but-never-used 911 RSR went for a whopping $2,254,492. The Porsche 918 Spyder was sold for $1,628,244. The RSR fit proper in with RM Sotheby’s estimate, while the 918 exceeded the estimate by about $100,000. Both Porsches also ranked amid the 10 top selling cars at the Villa Erba auction, with the RSR selling for the third highest amount behind a partner of pre-war French cars, and the 918 was fifth highest.

These expensive Porsches also show why buying limited production models to flip for profit would be appealing, which is an conclusion that Porsche is currently trying to resolve. Fortunately for Porsche these cars plausible weren’t bought for profit making. The RSR was owned for many years before being sold, and the possessor of the 918 managed to put on an impressive 6,800 miles before selling.
