Renowned Supercar driver Russell Ingall has sold his stunning Gold Coast mansion for what is believed to be close to its asking price of $6.9million. 

According to realestate.com.au, buyers raced to purchase the sprawling Isle of Capri property – and it was snapped up less than two months after it was put on the market in April.
