Thirty exquisite Ferraris and more than 100 pieces of Ferrari automobilia will be auctioned June 5 as part of National Ferrari Owners Day in the UK. Hosted by the Ferrari Owners’ Club of Great Britain, the Silverstone Auctions sale will take place at Hangar One of the Sywell Aerodrome.
Among the special Ferraris is a 1972 365 GTB/4 Daytona formerly owned by rock star Elton John. One of just 158 Daytona supplied to the UK, the 365 is finished in its original colors of Rosso over Nero (red over black), with a numbers-matching drivetrain and accompanied by its Classiche Red Book, original purchase order and a comprehensive set of invoices.
The Elton John Daytona is valued at £440,000 to £500,000 ($624,450 to $709,600).
A 1974 Ferrari 256 Dino GTS with factory flares and in the rare factory color of Nocciola Metallizzato (metallic hazelnut) will be the docket. The right-hand-drive Dino was extensively restored from 2016-2018 by Italia Autosport. Estimated value is £375,000 to £425,000 ($532,20 to $603,160).
“We are honored to be part of this special day which celebrates Ferrari,” Gary Dunne, sales controller of Silverstone Auctions, said in an auction news release. “Our dedicated marque sale will see some truly special and unique opportunities and of course we are delighted that bidders will be able to join us in the room for this auction.”
A number of modern-classic Ferrari will be auctioned, such as a 2003 360 Spider F1 in Grigio Alloy (gray alloy) that has been driven just 9,300 miles and stands in “incredibly well-preserved condition,” Silverstone says. Its estimated value is £72,000 to £80,000 ($102,180 to $113,54).
Another 21st Century model is a 2007 612 Scaglietti, a well-equipped example with Daytona seats, Scuderia Ferrari wing shields and a factory fitted HGTS package. The 612 has been driven just 16,500 miles by its two owners and is described as being in immaculate condition. The estimated value is £60,000 to £70,000 ($85,150 to $99,340).
Automobilia items dedicated to Ferrari include luggage sets, watches, registration numbers, tool kits and pictures.
