Includes rare Porsche 934/5 and Volkswagen T2 van

Do you have half a million bucks laying around? Looking to spend it all in one place for a Ferrari or maybe a Lamborghini? Why not buy pair of cool vintage cars wrapped in the iconic Martini livery then? You can do just that a Bonhams’ Spa Classic Sale on May 21st and it will get you a rare 1976 Porsche 934/5 Kremer race car and a 1977 Volkswagen T2 transporter in matching colors to haul all those spare parts at the race track.

The Porsche 934 needs no introduction if you’re a racing enthusiast, but in case you aren’t, you should know that it’s one of the most iconic race cars of all time. Based on the 934, which in turn was a racing version of the 911 Turbo, the 934/5 won Porsche the World Championship in 1977. The Martini-sponsored Kremer took part in this victory too by winning the Hockenheim round with the No. 69 model pictured here. Following its racing career with Kremer, it had two more owners and also spent a few years in storage. Restored to its original livery, it’s estimated to fetch €320,000 to €400,000 (about $356,110 to $445,290) at auction.

These vans were used on an extended scale by German works teams back in the 1960s and 1970s, and most of them were finished in the same livery as the race cars.

In a separate auction, Bonhams is attempting to sell a Martini-liveried Volkswagen T2 transporter. These vans were used on an extended scale by German works teams back in the 1960s and 1970s, and most of them were finished in the same livery as the race cars. This van was actually converted from an original bus version to serve as a historic racing support vehicle and the good news is that it features a 2.1-liter engine from a Porsche 914 rated at 110 horsepower. Not only fast and good looking, it’s also pretty affordable with an estimate bid range of €45,000 to €55,000 (around $50,090 to $62,210).
