Max Verstappen’s Porsche 911 ‘Training Car’ Goes Up For Sale… For $1.2 Million

The fastest man in the world’s personal training car has just popped up for sale in the United States… But you’ll need a World Champion-sized wallet to be able to buy it.

Max Verstappen is a once-in-a-generation talent. The 25-year-old Dutchman, who races for Red Bull in the Formula 1 World Championship, already has two titles to his name – and already looks set to sail to another, if the first two F1 races of 2023 indicate…

But what does Max drive when he’s not driving a Red Bull? Well, it turns out he drives a Porsche 911. Or, at least, he used to. A 2019 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport belonging to the reigning world champ has gone up for sale at a Ferrari dealership (of all places) in Scottsdale, Arizona – and it might just be the coolest Porsche in the world.

The 911 GT2 RS Clubsport, for those not in the know, is the most powerful (and most expensive) production 911 that Porsche has ever built. Boasting a mammoth rear wing and a carbon fibre roof with large air intakes, it’s powered by a 3.8L twin-turbo flat-six that makes 515 kW/750 Nm and will rocket from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds.

As Verstappen’s personal training car, it’s been maintained by the Red Bull Racing team (you couldn’t ask for a better service history), has only 2,185km on the clock and is wrapped in a custom Verstappen ‘lion’ livery. Max also autographed the front hood of the car, interior dashboard, and engine block at the 2022 Belgium Grand Prix.

In short, it’s the ultimate piece of Max Verstappen memorabilia. The price? A fairly punchy US$795,000 (~ AU$1,185,000). But can you really put a price on being as fast as Super Max?

Verstappen reportedly purchased this Porsche for US$400,000 after winning his first F1 race, the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix.

Other cars in the young Dutchman’s impressive collection include a rare Renault R.S.01, four Aston Martins including a Valkyrie, a Ferrari Monza SP2 and a Mercedes-Benz C63 S AMG – showing that while those brands might be his rivals on the track, he doesn’t have a problem having them in his garage off-track.
