Silverstone Auctions next sale is taking place on Saturday 5th June as part of the National Ferrari Owners Day. Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain will host the event at Sywell Aerodrome, with the auction taking place in Hanger One from midday where over 100 items of Ferrari themed automobilia and 30 superb Ferraris will go under the hammer.

A very special example, which was once owned by Sir Elton John, is the 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Classiche Certified, it is one of just 158 UK-supplied Daytonas and it is accompanied by a comprehensive history file. Finished in its original colours of Rosso over Nero, it is matching numbers and is accompanied by its Classiche Red Book, original purchase order and a wealth of invoices. Estimated at (£): 440,000 – 500,000, this is a chance to own a true legend.   

Another classic crossing the block on Saturday 5th is this striking 1974 Ferrari 246 Dino GTS. Classiche certified by Ferrari in 2017, this is a very rare factory flares car and one of just 72 that left Maranello in the colour Nocciola Metallizzato. The car benefitted from an extensive restoration between 2016 and 2018 at Italia Autosport and the superb interior is still in situ. This right-hand drive example is estimated at (£): 375,000 – 425,000.

Gary Dunne, Sales Controller of Silverstone Auctions noted “We are honoured to be part of this special day which celebrates Ferrari. Our dedicated marque sale will see some truly special and unique opportunities and of course we are delighted that bidders will be able to join us in the room for this auction. Bidding will also be available by phone, online or via commission and if you cannot attend on the day, you will be able to watch the auction on YouTube.”

It’s not just classics that will be offered in the sale, modern classics will also feature – including this fabulous 2003 Ferrari 360 Spider F1 which has had just one owner from new. Having covered only 9,300 miles, it is a lovely specification of Grigio Alloy over a Crema leather interior, with blue carpets, and a blue hood. An incredibly well preserved 360 Spider, it is accompanied by a comprehensive history file and service history from new with 17 stamps from the supplying dealer. Estimated at (£): 72,000 – 80,000.

Another modern classic confirmed for the auction is this superbly equipped 2007 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (HGTS). The desirable specification includes Daytona seats, Scuderia Ferrari wing shields and a factory fitted HGTS package. With just 16,500 miles from new, it has a full service history, has had just two private owners and is in immaculate condition. Estimated at (£): 60,000 – 70,000.

A number of automobilia items will also be offered in the Ferrari sale, including luggage sets, watches, registration numbers, tool kits and pictures. The automobilia auction will commence at midday and the car sale will begin at 2pm.
