KEY FACTS

  • An excellent example of the highly capable drop-top supercar, presented in a lesser seen factory colour combination and with a host of desirable optional extras.
  • Under the hood is the twin-turbocharged 3.6-litre flat-six, which sends 480bhp and 460lb ft of torque to all four wheels via an engaging six-speed short-shirt manual transmission.
  • As a result, the 997-generation 911 Turbo Cabriolet can sprint from 0-60mph in 3.7, before going on to a claimed top speed of 194mph.
  • The odometer currently reads 51,600 miles, and the car has been enjoyed by the seller since 2008.
