The Porsche 911S driven by lead character Saga Norén in hit Danish-Swedish series The Bridge will be sold at auction, with profits going to charity.

With the series having concluded earlier this year, the iconic 1970s sports car is now set to be given a new home, Danish broadcaster DR reports.

The olive green car will be sold at the Bonhams Festival of Speed Sale in Goodwood in the United Kingdom on July 13th, with money raised to be donated to WaterAid, a Swedish NGO which aims for the entire world to have access to clean water by 2030.
