Held in association with the Ferrari Owners Club of Great Britain, this sale will be a selection of some of the finest sports cars from the Italian marque.
Already consigned is a 1990 Ferrari 348 TB. Launched in 1989 this is one of the 60 pre-production models with styling cues taken from the Testarossa, its side strakes and rectangular tail lights. When production ceased in 1993, just 2,894 cars had been produced and with such a limited run of cars, this is a great opportunity to acquire 3.4 litre V8 Ferrari which has just 2,500 kilometres on the clock from new. This is one superb car, not only is it is Classiche certified, but it also comes with the completely original luggage set, tools, jack and leather book pack. Offered at £85,000 to £95,000 this left-hand-drive 348 is now UK registered and has been recently serviced by a Ferrari main dealer. This really is one for the collector.
Also confirmed at this early stage is a 1998 Ferrari 550 Maranello, with just 3,429 miles from new with one owner it is in beautiful genuine condition; always garage-stored, with complete service history. The 550 Maranello has been recently professionally detailed and fully serviced (including belts), truly one of the last of the purist’s V12 manual Ferraris with real-world GT ability and a timeless modern classic.
With an estimate of between £75-85k, the successor to the 550 Maranello, a 2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello F1 is also going under the hammer. UK-supplied in right-hand drive, 21,020 miles, Rosso Corsa with Nero hide in fabulous condition, this 550 Maranello has been tastefully specified including Daytona style seats, 19’ Modular wheels and Scuderia Ferrari shields. With a full detailed history folder, original book pack, stamped service book, supporting invoices, spare keys, tools and MOTs. A stunning example of the fast and comfortable 575 incorporating the latest F1 technology of the time.
