Million dollar Porsche hits the streets

Morgunbladid reports that an Icelandic plumber living in Selfoss, Helgi Már Björnsson, has purchased a Porsche Carrera GT sports car.

The reported purchase price, including import duties and taxes, amounts to “about 70 million króna” or approximately USD 1 million.

Morgunbladid reports that the vehicle is designed for competition and has a maximum speed of 350 km/hr.

“You can only barely get over speed bumps [in the Porsche],” said Helgi Már to Morgunbladid, “but I am sure that I’ll take it overseas and play with it on a closed racetrack.” “I test drove the car on such a track in Germany before buying it. And I understand that there are plans to build a Formula-track in Reykjanesbaer, and let’s hope that that comes to pass,” said Helgi Már.

Most Icelandic roads provide for only a single lane of traffic in each direction. The maximum speed limit is 90 km/hr.
