AUCTION – During its sale in early March, Bonhams will offer the 911 convertible which once belonged to the Argentine football legend.
Diego Maradona, who died at the age of 60 on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, loved sports and prestige automobiles. Throughout his career, the Argentine champion will have possessed the most beautiful and the most powerful. After winning the World Cup in 1986 and bringing the UEFA Cup to club Napoli, the Argentine football legend can afford anything. He thus offers himself a Ferrari Testa Rossa then an F 40 when it comes out. But in the early 1990s, Maradona began her descent into hell. Sentenced to a 15-month suspension following a positive cocaine test on March 17, 1991, the idol of a whole generation left Naples to play for Sevilla FC in 1992.
In the Andalusian city, the new team captain rents the villa of Juan Antonio Ruiz Roman, the most famous bullfighter in Spain, and orders, as the documents provided during the sale attest, a Porsche 911 Carrera 2 (type 964) Convertible with the rare enlarged Turbo-look body. He uses his new acquisition on a daily basis to travel to club training and for his personal travel. Maradona does not fail to stand out behind the wheel of her German racing car. It will thus be controlled at 180 km / h in the center of Seville.
When he left the Andalusian city in June 1993, he separated from his 911 convertible. The vehicle was sold to an enthusiast on the island of Mallorca who would keep it for 20 years. Since then it has passed into the hands of several French collectors. The latest has owned it since 2016. Perfectly preserved, Diego Maradona’s old 911 has traveled 120,000 km since it left the factory. The Bonhams house, which sells it during its “the big brands of the world in Paris” auction, estimated it between 150,000 and 200,000 euros. Due to the health crisis, the sale will take place via the Internet. Fans will have one week to bid, from March 3 to 10.
I hope you are in health and well.
