In the lead-up to RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba sale, the auction house revealed it had some pretty amazing machines lined up. Among them was a 1993 Porsche 993 RSR 3.8 that was only ever driven 6 miles.

Interestingly, only two of these four cars sold, but they went for hefty sums.
The almost-never-used 911 RSR went for a whopping $2,254,492. The Porsche 918 Spyderwas sold for $1,628,244.
