This week, the Porsche car owned by the late Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona, during his last season in Europe, is up for auction.
Maradona drove the silver car, a Porsche 911, produced in 1992, to training and matches, while he was playing in the Spanish team Sevilla in the 1992-1993 season, which was his last in Europe, after he spent a 15-month suspension period due to his fall in Test for doping.
Gregory Teutens, a car expert at Bonhams Auctions, told Reuters: “At a storage facility in Belgium,” a brand new Maradona received it, and because of the status of its previous owner, this car may be sold for three times the value of a car of its kind. ”
The online auction will run from Wednesday to March 10. Its value is estimated at 200,000 euros (240,800 dollars), but Teutons said Bonhams expects it to sell for more.
He added, “It will not only attract car enthusiasts, but also football fans, and Maradona is the legend of the game.”
The car spent 20 years with another owner in the Spanish island of Mallorca, before many car owners took it in France. It will enter the auction after it has traveled 120,000 km, registered with the car’s meter.
