Mike Tyson’s F50 Ferrari to go under the hammer
A 1995 F50 Ferrari owned by the one and only Mike Tyson is planned to go under the hammer in the US. The car is certain to make a huge sum after being owned by the WBA, WBC and IBF boxing champion.
With a 4.7-litre 520bhp V12 engine, the second hand car is predicted to be a popular hit and reign in approximately $2.4 million (£1.9 million). The sale will take place on March 11th at the RM Sotheby’s Amelia Island, expecting to take this amount due to it being number 73 of only 50 created for the American market in the late 1990’s, also the 73rd of 349 built from 1995 to 1997.
The sale price was estimated even before taking note of who is the current owner. Boxing world champion Mike Tyson is the second owner of the car and will definitely make an impact on the final bid.
When the car was first put on the market in 1995, there was no other like it and included striking modifications to say the least. Clocking 62mph from a standstill in 3.8 seconds, the Ferrari tops a speed of 202mph. Unlike many, the car is looked at as a featherweight, this is down to the carbon fibre passenger cell. This certainly stood out to Tyson who also purchased a Ferrari 456 at exactly the same time. It also features an impressive six-speed longitudinal gearbox, complete with a limited-slip differential.
With a rare 4,694 miles on the clock, the final expected sales figure of this car will definitely leave you knocked out.
