The World’s Most Expensive Porsche?

At Walton Bridge Garage, we love a classic as much as the next man. Often the classics we tend to see are VW Campers, in for an overhaul after attempting a ten mile chip to the nearest coast line. But owning such a vehicle is a labour of love and one that can’t be explained to those that don’t understand.

However in August one lucky member of the motoring world will have a chance to get their hands on a real piece of automotive, racing history. When we say one lucky member we obviously mean someone with enough money to make a genuine bid at Goodings and Company’s auction in Monterey.

What will they be bidding on? A genuine Le Mans winner, the car of course not the driver who won in it.

One of only ten examples, the Group C, 1982 Porsche 956 won the prestigious event in 1983 and went on to become an iconic sight in the Le Mans winner’s circle.

You can tell it’s a classic thanks to the body work being drabbed in Rotherham’s advertising. This sort of practice has long been laid to rest, thanks to over cautious mothers and their pals at every health and safety institute around the world. Rather than making you want to smoke, it evokes nostalgic feelings of a time when motor racing didn’t take itself so seriously. A time when you could pimp out every last inch of your cars body work to big time sponsors and not feel bad in the slightest.

These days, that sort of thing is only allowed by banks, aftershave or mobile phone companies. Which it could be argued have done more damage to younger generations by brainwashing them with smart phones, than a cheeky cigarette ever did.

If that sort of thing also gets your temper flaring, than buying this La Man winner could help put the world to rights. It will go under the hammer at Pebble Beach where it is expected to fetch as much as £5.6m making it one of the most expensive Porsche ever to be auctioned off. Worth every penny.
