A Porsche formerly owned by legendary footballer Diego Maradona will be auctioned off this week.

The rare Porsche 911 is valued at US$180,000 and US$240,000 and was delivered to the Argentine star in 1992.

The vehicle has been put up for sale as part of the Bonhams auction in Paris that runs for a week, beginning March 3.
