Bonhams has revealed that a Porsche 911 that once belonged to none other than soccer legend Diego Maradona will be part of its Les Grandes Marques du Monde sale in Paris, which will take place exclusively online from March 3 to 10, 2021. The car is estimated to sell for between 150,000 and 200,000 euros.

Diego Maradona, who died on 25 November 2020, was an aficionado of beautiful cars, like this Porsche 911 Type 964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet, bought new in 1992. This is the car he was driving when he was caught speeding in the heart of Seville, Spain. The following year, when he left the Spanish club, he got rid of it and it would then spend 20 years with a private owner before passing into the hands of various French collectors. Only 1,200 examples of this model, delivering 250 hp and capable of reaching 260 km/h, were produced by Porsche.
