The Porsche Carrera GT you’re looking at here is essentially a brand new supercar. While it may have rolled off the production line 13 years ago, in that time, it has covered merely 69 miles! I know people who jog further than that each week!

With a 5.7L normally aspirated V10 sending 612bhp to the rear wheels via a manual gearbox, and an orgasmic sound to your ears via its exhausts, it’s something of a mystery why it hasn’t been enjoyed more. But happily, the opportunity is there for the richer individuals to make amends for the years of inactivity - because it’s for sale.

Described as being in perfect condition, the photos provided sure as hell confirm that. Painted in the classic combination of GT Silver Metallic on the outside, and Terracotta on the inside, this Carrera GT is quite simply the most stunning example I’ve ever seen on the market.

During the Carrera GT’s 2 year production run from 2005 to 2007, 1270 cars were made - which is quite a lot for something which could be described as a hypercar in its day. The specialness of the car however is not for one moment diluted by the production numbers. If anything, the Carrera GT is looked back on now with more affection than people gave it upon release.

If you want it, you’ll be required to travel to France where it’s being sold - so hurry, before someone sets fire to it! The price for such an exquisite low-milage speed machine? Just under $1.6million!! If you ask me however, it’s worth that - and more!

But what do you guys think? Would you buy this Carrera GT if you could, considering what modern machinery you could be driving away in for the same money? Let me know in the comments.

  • It’s the finest road-going Porsche, in my opinion. But buying this one would be an odd choice - if you like to drive your cars. Its value is inflated because it’s barely been driven. If you were to buy it, you couldn’t drive it either - unless you’re willing to throw away $500k. Therefore, save some cash and buy a well cared for example for considerably less and go out and drive the bloody thing. This particular one is a Collectors car, not a drivers car.
