During the pandemic of the past two years, the field of car collecting has actually expanded, opening vast new horizons for both buyers and sellers.Now, everyone seems to be buying…Everything.There’s nothing crazier than the latest supercars, and of them all, porsche is at the top of most car fans’ wish list.This 2019 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is one of the first products to be auctioned online for the first time by Bonhams, a new digital auction platform launched in the United States today.Bonhams holds dozens of car auctions around the world each year, but this is its first foray into dedicated online auctions.Marketplace customers will benefit from a streamlined process that eliminates buyer fees and only charges a 5% commission (capped at $5,000) to the unit seller.Each week-long auction offers transaction transparency and the convenience of buying and selling cars without the traditional structure of a fixed auction calendar.The 911 GT2 RS, the latest version of the Porsche Extreme GT model, was introduced in 2017 and is due for completion in 2019.Based on the 991 series Turbo, it eschewed four-wheel drive, was lighter, and completely focused on the track, making it the most powerful production 911 ever.While the upcoming 992 generation will eventually raise the stakes, there is no sign that the attraction has waned.The heart and soul of the GT2 RS is its 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat 6 engine, which produces 700 horsepower and 553 ft pounds of torque.A 7-speed PDK transmission can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 2.7 seconds, and the car has a top speed of 211 MPH.In 2021, the GT2 RS set a lap record of 6:43.30 at Nurburgring with an average speed of 114.40mph.So the car comes with the Weissach Package, a $31,000 option, of which 1,000 of these variants are equipped.Carbon fiber for the roof, anti-roll bar and two-axle couplings, titanium for the anti-roll frame and magnesium for the wheels, have reduced the 3,241-pound car’s weight by about 40 pounds.A surprising number of GT2 and GT3 owners are not letting their cars get miles, and the only owner of this car is almost new and has only 363 miles on it.The car uses a popular but rare Miami blue paint scheme to showcase its bold profile and carbon fiber components.Bids open today and close on January 31.
