Leading up to the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans, Porsche Asia Pacific started an online auction for one of just 13 Porsche 919 Hybrid mockups ever made, with all the proceeds benefitting Singapore-based charity organization SportCares.
Now that the dust has settled, AutoGuide reports that the replica Porsche 919 Hybrid brought in a very meaningful $106,100 for the organization. That’s somewhat less than what we had anticipated would be the going rate, seeing as just 13 of these mockups were made for the purpose of conducting official development studies.
This $106k Porsche 919 mockup is a life-size representation of the Le Mans-winning race car,and it wears the signatures of each of the marque’s six Le Mans racing drivers from 2014: Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas, Brendon Hartley, Neel Jani, Marc Lieb, and Mark Webber. While none of these drivers co-piloted this year’s winning No. 19 car, Bernhard, Hartley, and Webber did manage to drive the No. 17 car to a victory this year, making those signatures especially valuable.
AutoGuide further reports that beside scoring the coolest ever life-size Porsche 919 lawn ornament, the winning bidder also received an all-expenses-paid two-night trip to Singapore to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the city-state’s independence from the UK and Malaysia.
