We’d bid on these 10 thoroughbreds at Silverstone Auctions’ Ferrari sale

On 18 May, Silverstone Auctions will offer over 30 Prancing Horses at its inaugural Ferrari sale, held in association with the Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain. These are the cars that piqued our interest…

There’s a distinctly modern flavour to Silverstone Auctions’ forthcoming Ferrari sale, with a large majority of the cars offered originating in the 1970s and onwards. While the star of the show is surely the rare right-hand-drive 2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta that shows just 3,022 miles on the clock (est. 325,000–375,000 GBP), the Prancing Horse we were most drawn to was the curious 1987 Ferrari 512BB with an of-the-era body conversion by Emblem (110,000–150,000 GBP). The one of 10 right-hand-drive Ferrari 550 Maranello ‘World Speed Record’ editions is also very special. Just 33 examples were built to commemorate Ferrari’s trio of average speed records in Columbus, Ohio, in 1988, and feature, among other things, the Fiorano Handling Pack, a leather-trimmed roll bar, and carbon-backed bucket seats. This immaculate Grigio Titanio example is expected to fetch 140,000–170,000 GBP when it crosses the block at Silverstone on 18 May.
