Sotheby’s auction house has hosted a plethora of one-off vehicles during its tenure — each with their own intriguing story, style, and poise. But Berluti’s 1973 Porsche 911 Targa 2.4 S, the highlight of the company’s upcoming Berluti: The Art Of Craftsmanship exhibition, plays on our animal instincts a little more than the rest.

This handsome bespoke build comes courtesy of Porsche’s sleek F-Series Targa, giving it a nostalgic and eclectic look. Performance-wise, it references the manufacturer’s 2.4-liter air-cooled, flat six-cylinder engine, which is capable of pushing out close to 190 horsepower. Thanks to its “S” designation, it also houses a number of traits from Porsche’s successive RS platform. But what makes this Targa special isn’t the performance figures — it’s the fact that, for the first time, France’s Berluti atelier has decided to take over customization for the car. On the interior, the 911 is covered from head to toe in beautifully burnished Venezia leather. A trimmed steering wheel, leather headliner, engine compartment, dashboard, and seats give way to the company’s elegant, hand-stitched upholstery. Aside from the Targa, Berluti is offering a weekender bag and driving slippers that are also made from the same, high-quality calf leather. If you’re interested, head over to Sotheby’s site for details — the auction is slated to start on April 24.

Purchase: $200,000+
