One of the world’s most rare and magnificent cars is up for sale: a Porsche 911 996 GT1. Only 25 of these beauties were ever built and the one currently for sale is quite possibly the most rare of all. Why you may ask? Well, it’s never been driven, literally. It sports a big, fat 0 on the odometer.

Asking price is quite the pretty penny, coming in at 1,335,000 Euros (that’s a tad over $1,860,000). But what you get is an exotic that was designed for competition in the GT1 class at the Le Mans 24 Hours race. The 996 GT1 was sold as a street car strictly for homologation purposes.

It sports a 3.2-liter flat-six power plant that pushes out slightly under 600-hp and propels the supercar from 0-62 mph in 3.3 seconds. If you’ve got the cash and want to own a piece of real automotive history, better hit the source to get your hands on it.
