David Beckham is offloading his Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible on eBay ahead of an impending return to Premiership football at Tottenham.

The wheels cost Becks £100k new back in 2008, and he apparently stumped another £50k having it modified to an all-black "murdered out" state.

Back's black Porsche

The motor boasts "Tiptronic S transmission, heated front seats, parking assist, sport chrono/package, module for telephone PCM, remote CD changer, thicker leather steering wheel", and its non-smoking owner has clocked up just 6,774 miles at the wheel.

The Porsche also features "custom made silver '23' emblems" throughout, in honour of the football star's shirt number at LA Galaxy.

Should you wish to avail yourself of this "very rare opportunity to acquire a unique supercar with unparalleled celebrity history", top bid this afternoon stood at a tad over $200k, with six days left to run on the auction. ®
