The $4.4 million race car is the most expensive Porsche ever sold

A stunning 917/30 Can-Am race car from Porsche that hailed in the motorsport series in 1973 went under the hammer and created quite a storm. Only four supercars have been built to date, and the car can hit 0-62mph in just 1.9 seconds with a top speed of over 240mph. Despite its record-breaking performance, this car was never raced. Held by private individuals, this particular car comes from Porsche collector Matthew Drendel’s collection. The hammer came down at a whopping £2.8 million ($4.4 million), which is said to be the highest ever price for this firm’s cars.

Along with this one, another 17 from the collection were also auctioned off for a total of $36 million. Of these, a 1955 Porsche 550/1500 RS Spyder fetched £2.35 million ($3.68 million), and 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Turbo fetched £2 million ($3.13 million).
