Lovingly nicknamed ’Enry’s Ferrari and described as “presenting beautifully”, the car is finished in Rosso red and complementing tan hide, has covered 60,000 miles and is one of just 55 right-hand drive examples produced. Silverstone  Auctions, who will sell the car at their 14th to 15th November sale at the NEC Classic Motor Show in Birmingham note: “This elegant bruiser is boxing clever… It should be noted that this car has the pedigree of the prancing horse, the presence of a heavyweight and the provenance to ensure it is a sound investment as well as a driver’s car”.

    1. A farmer friend of mine used to drive one because he liked to wear a trilby when driving and he pointed out that it was the only Ferrari one could drive in a hat. Not a beautiful car but a very accomplished and comfortable high speed 4 seater, well ahead of it’s time.
