Rare collection of Ferrari cars to sell for 14 million
A gorgeous private collection of Ferrari’s dating back 50 years is set to sell for a minimum of £14 million.
The fleet of 13 goes back to a Ferrari 250 GT SWB from 1961, which has been named the manufacturers prettiest and most iconic model.
The 250 SWB is the most valuable motor in the collection and is set to bring in roughly £7.5 million when it goes on sale next month. This estimate has been compared to a California version which has recently sold for £14.4 million.
Joining the 25O SWB is another 60s Ferrari- the 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta. The sports car is capable of more than 150mph and is set to sell for £2.5 million.
These Italian car models are some of the most expensive to have ever graced the market, and the fleet account for seven of the top 10 priciest models to have ever been sold at auction.
A 1991 Ferrari F40 is also going to auction, which is known for being the first car to have cracked 200mph. This model is set to go to auction for more than £1 million.
The model which is on sale has been driven approximately 2,800 miles in the past 26 years.
There are numerous modern models in the collection as well, with the five post-2000 models expecting to be sold for £1.7 million.
