Produced for just five years, the Porcshe 911 GT2 is a high-performance sports car and based on the 911 Turbo with an improved twin-turbo engine, high performance brakes and suspension. The 911 (993) GT2 evolved due to homologation^ requirements needed in the GT2 class racing. With an air-cooled 3.6 litre engine, this car model was made in two versions – street (430 hp) and racing (600 hp). Only little over 50 cars rolled out for the public between 1993-1998.
One of the cars that participated at the Le Mans race in 1998, was given an artistic touch by well known cartoonist and comic writer Georges Wolinski who worked for the Charlie Hebdo magazine in France (he died in the same terrorist attack when two brothers barged in to the Charlie Hebdo office and gunned down 12 people).
This car labelled as the “Naked Lady” and sponsored by Team Elf Haberthur Racing had auctioneer Hervé Poulain driving along with Jean-Luc Maury-Laribière and Eric Graham. This car #68 came 20th overall and 6th in the GT2 class.
