Footballing legend Diego Maradona’s rare 1992 Porsche has been put up for sale at the Bonhams auction coming up in Paris between March 3-10, according to CNN.
The rare silver Porsche was delivered new to Maradona in 1992 when he was playing for Spanish club Sevilla, his last season in Europe and is currently valued between $180,000 and $240,000.
According to Bonhams, the car has a top speed of almost 162 miles per hour (260 kph) and is one of just 1,200 variants produced over a two-year period. It has been owned by the current vendor since 2016 and has covered roughly 74,560 miles (120,000 km).
“We are delighted to present this quintessential 90s Porsche with its very colorful and unique provenance, which will appeal to many football enthusiast collectors worldwide,” said Paul Darvill, European Auctions Manager at Bonhams, via CNN.
Maradona is regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time and also as a scandalous human on and off the pitch, a flawed legend. One of his notable on field antics was the famous “Hand of God”.
