This Porsche RS61 could be sold for almost 4 million euros

A Porsche RS61 built in 1961 will be the subject of an auction at the end of February. Its value is mind-blowing.

THE classic cars the most expensive are not always Bugattis, Ferraris or Mercedes-Benzes. Among the most exceptional sales in history, a Porsche 917K went for 13 million euros in 2017. In 2015, it was a Porsche 956 which was sold for almost 10 million euros.

And the dizzying sales of Porsche models are not about to stop. Gooding & Company will offer an RS61 in its next auction, which will take place from February 29 to March 1, 2024. If this model remains little-known today, partly due to its age, its value is very high. It is estimated at nearly 4 million euros.

A souvenir from Porsche’s racing debut

Although this old Porsche from 1961 looks like a race car, it is not so. It is actually a road version of the Spyder, a series of sports vehicles from the German manufacturer. It was with this series, and in particular thanks to the 718 RSK Spyder from 1959, that he managed to establish himself in motor racing.

The RS61 is also the latest car in the Spyder series. Its value is therefore not surprising, insofar as it carries with it the memory of the beginnings of Porsche’s racing success. Very well-preserved, this copy sold by Gooding & Company is also luxurious.

An incredibly rare car

The Porsche RS61 is not just a memory of past glory. It is also an incredibly rare car. In 1961, only 14 models were produced. This one was finished in a legendary color from the German manufacturer, a metallic gray. And although it has passed through the hands of several owners, its condition has not deteriorated.

Despite its staggering value, the RS61 isn’t the only car this expensive to be featured at Gooding & Company’s sale in February and March. A Ferrari 500 World Series I Spyder from 1954 is also offered at a similar price. Other sought-after collector’s vehicles can also be purchased, such as a Ferrari 275 GTB/4.
