A professionally restored, Porsche 911 SC, will be the main attraction at the Jardine Motors Charity Ball in support of Whizz-Kidz, to be held at Porsche Centre Colchester on Friday, November 21.
The car, which is more than 32 years old and first registered in 1982, was restored by a team of four Porsche technicians based at Jardine Motors' Porsche Centre Cambridge.
The team of technicians, all classic car enthusiasts, worked on the restoration project for four months with over 600 service hours being devoted to the task.
Mark Herbert, chief executive, Jardine Motors Group, said: "I am extremely proud of the commitment shown by the team at Cambridge Porsche and the quality of work they have completed on this classic car.
"I am confident that their efforts will be reflected in the money that we are able to raise for Whizz-Kidz when we auction this iconic 1980’s Porsche’.
Matt Wigginton, head of corporate partnerships at Whizz-Kidz, said: "A lot of hard work has gone into renovating this beautiful 1980’s Porsche for auction, and into organising the ball itself, and we hope that Jardine Motors Group customers and guests will bid generously on the night.
"All the funds raised will help us provide specialist mobility equipment for disabled children, setting them free to live their lives to the full and reach their true potential.’
The car will be auctioned live by BCA at the Jardine Motors Group Charity Ball complete with a 12-month mechanical and parts warranty. All proceeds from the sale, together with other auction lots, will be donated to Whizz-Kidz, Jardine Motors Group’s charity partner.
