IT’S so easy to buy online these days. At the click of a button you can order a book, food, concert tickets perhaps, or a cheap flight.
What about the ‘Ex-Jürgen Oppermann/Otto Altenbach/Loris Kessel Obermaier Racing 1990-93 Porsche Type 962 C Endurance Racing Competition Coupe’?
Along with being a bit of a mouthful, this Porsche sold in Bonhams’ Spa Classic Sale on May 24 at Le circuit de Spa Francorchamps, Brussels, also now stands as the most valuable lot ever sold to an online bidder at the auction house.
The hammer price was a hefty €1.3m (£926,120) but with the buyer’s premium included that internet buyer will have paid €1,495,000 (£1,065,038).
