Low mileage, pre-production Ferrari 348 TB to be offered by Silverstone Auctions


A 1986 Porsche Carrera Supersport Cabriolet
Held in association with Porsche Club GB and The Ferrari Owners Club of Great Britain

Silverstone Auctions next sale will be held at The Dallas Burston Polo Club and will be for a Sale of Ferrari and Porsche on the 21st September.

Held in association with the Porsche Club GB and The Ferrari Owners Club of Great Britain, this sale will be a selection of some of the finest sports cars from these German and Italian marques.


Already consigned is a 1990 Ferrari 348 TB. Launched in 1989 this is one of the 60 pre-production models with styling cues taken from the Testarossa, its side strakes and rectangular tail lights. When production ceased in 1993, just 2,894 cars had been produced and with such a limited run of cars, this is a great opportunity to acquire 3.4 litre V8 Ferrari which has just 2,500 kilometres on the clock from new. This is one superb car, not only is it is Classiche certified, but it also comes with the completely original luggage set, tools, jack and leather book pack. Offered at £85,000 to £95,000 this left-hand-drive 348 is now UK registered and has been recently serviced by a Ferrari main dealer. This really is one for the collector.


The Porsche 911s from the 1980s are considered to be one of the best designs, with their big whale tails and flared wheel arches for a more sportier appearance. When you get to the level of a Carrera Supersport Cabriolet, well what a stunning car it becomes. It is revered as the ultimate development of the 911. This 1986 version with just over 50,000 miles really looks the part. Presented in black with a cream and black piped leather interior, this two-owner car has recently had a service totalling £5,500 by a marque specialist which also included a new clutch, exhaust, fuel tank and pump. Offered at £55,000 to £65,000 this black beauty comes with its tools and service book.


Harry Whale auction manager for Silverstone Auctions commented: “Our sale of Ferraris and Porsches gives a great opportunity to showcase these fine sportscars.”


“This year will be the first time that we hold the two sales on one day at the Dallas Burston Polo Club. The venue is also great for accessibility with parking very close to the auction and with food on offer from the on-site restaurant.”


“We are of course delighted to be working with our two clubs, this will be our fifth auction with Porsche Club GB and the second with The Ferraris Owners Club of Great Britain.”


Friday the 21st September will be a viewing day from 1pm to 6pm with the auction of automobilia and cars on the Saturday from 9am.
