Classic Ferrari Dino Tops Silverstone Auction Sales
A Ferrari Dino headlined the recent Silverstone (UK) Classic Car & Motorsport auction when it pushed the bidding to almost £440,000.
The superbly presented Dino Ferrari from Y 1974 had the rare, factory-fitted flared wheel arches and bidders in the room at Silverstone Auctions’ recent sale at Stoneleigh Park and others on the phone took the final sale price to £439,875, nearly £140,000 more than its lower estimate.
From the same private owner came an equally impressive Y 1998 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta with just 7,017 miles from new. The car sold for £136,125, more than £50,000 over its lower estimate.
Another special supercar more than living up to its pre-sale hype was the 2005 Ford GT, formerly owned by Jenson Button, which hammered for £264,375.
Jaguar collectors were impressed by the fully restored, matching numbers 1960 Jaguar XK150 3.8 SE Drophead Coupé. A long bidding war led to the car selling for £132,750, more than 2X its lower estimate.
Another bidding war led to a stunning 1953 Alfa Romeo 1900 Barchetta Modificato selling to a buyer in the room for £94,500, nearly £30,000 over its lower estimate.
All 12 Porsches offered in the classic car auction were sold, headlined by a 1980 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo, which sold for £109,125.
Continuing to prove in demand, 6 fast Fords were sold, with a 2010 Ford Focus RS with only 1,800 miles selling for £41,063, more than £9,000 over lower estimate.
Have a terrific weekend.
