Estimate:
€60,000 - €80,000


Delivered new to Germany
Finished in its rare, original colour of Metallic Blue

Intended to be a low-cost Volkswagen sports car to replace the Karmann Ghia, the first four-cylinder, mid-engined 914 convertible appeared in 1969. VW and Porsche saw an opportunity to improve the 914’s mild performance by installing the flat six from the 911 T. Escalating production costs drove up the 914/6’s retail price, so relatively few were produced. Time has proven the 914/6 to be an extremely well-balanced automobile, and many have been uprated with larger engines. Today, original-specification 914/6s such as this are highly sought after.

Delivered new through Glöckler in Stuttgart on 12 May 1970, this very attractive 914/6 has been restored in its original and quite rare Metallic Blue paint complemented by black leatherette. Its original 14-inch wheels have been uprated with 15-inch Fuchs alloys. It is supplied with a correct spare wheel, jack, and toolkit.



Matriculado novo na Alemanha

Acabado na rara cor original azul Metallic

Destinado a ser um desportivo Volkswagen de baixo custo para substituir o Karmann Ghia, o primeiro descapotável 914 de quatro cilindros e motor central surgiu em 1969. A VW e a Porsche viram uma oportunidade de melhorar o desempenho moderado do 914 instalando o motor de seis cilindros opostos do 911 T. O aumento dos custos de produção elevou o preço de venda do 914/6, de tal modo que relativamente poucos foram produzidos. O tempo provou que o 914/6 é um automóvel extremamente bem equilibrado, e muitos foram melhorados com motores maiores. Hoje em dia, 914/6 com especificações originais são muito procurados.

Entregue novo através da Glöckler, em Estugarda, a 12 de maio de 1970, este atraente 914/6 foi restaurado na sua cor original, bastante rara, de azul Metallic com interior em couro preto. As jantes originais de 14 polegadas foram substituídas por Fuchs de 15 polegadas. É fornecido com o correto pneu sobresselente, macaco e jogo de ferramentas.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
