911 previously owned by Jenson
Button is up for sale. And it's no ordinary Porsche
911. It is a 1973 2.7 Carrera RS. Its number 1280 of the 1590 model and its a homologation model for Porsche
to go racing back in the 1970s.
Compared to the standard model the 2.7 Carrera RS features larger brakes, stiffer suspension, wider rear wheels and arches and the legendary ‘duck-tail' rear spoiler. The engine is a 2.7-litre flat-six pushing 210bhp and capable of 0-60mph took in under six seconds, and goes at top speed of 152mph. Back in its day this was the fastest thing around.
Jenson picked up this ultimate collectors' Porsche just two years ago, run, which has covered just 25,000 miles. It reportedly spent most of its life in Italy, owned early in its life by Mario Angiolini, founder of the ‘Jolly Club' Italian racing team.
You can imagine that being a rare 2.7 Carrera RS, in black, previously owned by the 2009 Formula One world champion and all-round top bloke, would command a significant premium over its lowly siblings. You'd be right. This particular Porsche is on the market for £209,850.
So if you are the sort of person who is into classics, especially previously owned by someone very cool and famous, then this is for you, that is if you can afford it.
