As England prepare to officialy kick off their 2018 World Cup campaign today in Russia against Tunisia, 54 years ago it was a certain Geoff Hurst who was preparing for the very same competition, undoubtedly the most prized in football.
Sir Geoff, who banged in a hat-trick at Wembley in 1966 to help England beat West Germany, was also the proud owner of a stunning silver Ferrari 550 Maranello that has come up for sale with prestigious Auto Dealer Kaaimans International https://www.kaaimans.com/ . Sir Geoff Hurst MBE is the most recent of four owners of the potent 550 Maranello and it is his name that’s listed as the last keeper on the V5 registration docu ment.
The 2001 Pininfarina-designed Supercar is powered by a 5.5-litre V12 engine which develops 478bhp giving it a 0-60mph time of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 198mph. Finished in Argento Nurburgring silver paint – including the brake callipers – with a black leather interior complimented by a full carbon-fibre trim.
As if those credentials where not enough, this particular prancing horse has covered only 37000 miles, despite being 17 years old, clearly Sir Geoff did not cruise cross continent very often.
Described as being in “excellent condition for its age and mileage”, a UK supplied right-hand drive model and has a full service history with both Ferrari main agents and Ferrari specialists. This fast appreciating classic is sure to be a winner with it’s next owner. https://www.kaaimans.com/
