Haas F1 pilot Kevin Magnussen is selling a Porsche 911 Turbo (930) sports car. The Dane has one of the first supercharged “911” with a 300-horsepower engine 3.3. The mileage of the 1977 coupe is 122,000 km. Magnussen himself did not travel to Porsche very often: on his account about 3,000 km.

The announcement notes that the Porsche 911 Turbo is one of the fastest road sports cars. The dynamics of the 40-year-old coupe surprise: as much as possible the car can accelerate to 260 km / h. Outwardly, the turbo-variant differs from the simple 911 Series II by the presence of extended wheel arches, brakes and a typical rear wing, called the “whale tail”.

The history of Magnussen’s car originates in Europe, and initially the model was intended for a client from Germany, and then Porsche was transported to America. In 2013, the coupe was imported to Denmark, where the new owner made a comprehensive restoration and restoration of the car.

 As noted, they did not save on spare parts and work, for this reason the machine retained authenticity. All windows have original markings, and the upholstery of the velor sports seats is made from 1970s fabrics.

  A sports car is sold by a salon that specializes in the sale of used cars. The model is estimated at 155,000 euros. The cost is high: for this amount in the German market you can buy the most equipped new Porsche 911 Carrera 4S in the back of a convertible.

  But if a potential client decides to purchase, he will receive a bonus: Magnussen himself will be present at the transaction and will hand over the keys to the new owner. According to the authors of the announcement, tickets for the 2020 Grand Prix may be attached to the car.
