RM Sotheby’s to auction off road-legal 1997 Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution for an estimated $3.3M

Car enthusiasts are fixated on the 1997 Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution as it is set to grace RM Sotheby's Monaco sale in May. It is specifically exquisite because the "P1 POW" registration at the back indicates that it is road legal and it is the only former racing 911 GT1 Evolution that is legalized for public road use worldwide.

Having said that, the 1997 Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution is worth every penny of its estimated cost at $3.3 million. Moreover, it is probably the most stylish racing car in history. It won the Canadian GT championship three-peat from 1999 to 2001, engaged in the 24 Hours of Daytona, and has 13 victories in 31 starts.

The Porsche 911 GT1 Evolution is built with a 3.2-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine, producing 600 to 640 hp. It’s no wonder then why the race car has recorded impressive stats since its launch. However, the incredible power delivered by the 911 GT1 Evolution is not as competitive against the Ferrari F40 LM and the McLaren F1 GTR.
