911 RSR with 6 miles sold at auction

I know guys who buy cars and salt them away but this one is ridiculous, a 911 RSR with six miles on it after many years. I'll reproduce the story here but would like to hear comments if the owner in Germany was judged sane or not...I don't know if it actually sold, by the way.

---------------------------------
Here's the website: https://www.thesun.co.uk/motors/3461131/ultra-rare-porsche-entirely-untouched-since-leaving-the-factory-24-years-ago-on-sale-for-1-85-million/

Here's the story:
GOOD AS NEW
Ultra-rare Porsche entirely untouched since leaving the factory 24 years ago goes on sale for £1.85 MILLION
Having never been driven on the road, this special edition Porsche 911 Carrera offers up a unique opportunity for diehard fans of the German automaker

THIS Porsche 911 Carrera is one of a kind.
But itís not just its physical modifications, or the fact that it is one of just 51 special edition custom models ever made.

The Porsche 911 Carrera is exactly as it was when it left the factory almost 25 years ago
What makes this silver sports car really unique is the fact that it has remained almost entirely untouched since it was manufactured in 1993.
The owner of the race-prepared, rare Type 964 Carrera RSR wanted to keep the car in such pristine condition it has never even been washed.
In fact, since its original purchase it has barely been driven and has spent the large majority of its life in a private collection.

Just goes to show that mental illness has no ecomonic boundaries.

I would tend to agree with this comment except for the fact that we have no idea what other vehicles the owner has in the stable. May not have been such a hardship to own and not drive this specimen.

A lot of $$$$ for something that if you use it goes down in value.

Really was not love of the car for this person, was simply just an investment proven by selling at auction. Would be interested to know what his ROI was on this extreme. So punched it into a simple calculator with no idea what he paid for the thing.
250K at 10% for 25 years will get you approx. $2.4 M. Guess that's not bad but with the expenses of simply "keeping a thing" that long, not spectacular.

If you have that kind of cash does it really matter?
