A 1964 Ferrari 330GT Series 1, once described by Enzo Ferrari himself as his favourite model, will be one of the star lots being offered by Silverstone Auctions at its next sale on 17th May.
Yet it’s not hard to see why it caught the eye and captured the heart of Enzo as elegance mated with power and performance made sure the 330GT was always destined for greatness.
Estimated at between £95,000 to £110,000, a world-class car needs a world-class surrounding when it’s being offered for sale, so the ultra-modern Wing building at Silverstone race track is more than fitting.
Here, bidders and admirers will be able to view the car in-the-metal before the auction starts, possibly paying close attention to the stunning Ferrari Blu Pozzi paintwork, shimmering chrome work or simply the original Borrani wheels!
However, there’s much to enjoy about this left-hand drive model that was imported back from the US to the UK in 2002, when it was then owned by an engineer who made sure it was properly maintained and wanted for nothing.
More recently in its current ownership it has benefitted from a strip and re-spray, no doubt which would have had the seal of approval from Enzo himself.
Other Ferrari’s also at the Silverstone Auctions sale include a 1986 Testarossa estimated at between £50,000 to £60,000, a 1974 Dino 308 GT4, estimated at between £19,000 to £23,000, a 1994 348 Spider, estimated at between £27,000 to £32,000 and a 1988 412i, estimated at between £15,000 to £20,000.
