Sir Elton's Ferrari 512TR to be sold at Coys


A 1991 Ferrari 512TR that was once owned by Sir Elton John is expected to make £90-110k at Coys’ Spring Classic Sale at Lindley Hall tonight (7pm).

The supercar has covered just 2100 miles and comes in Rosso Corsa with a beige interior. It also has a complete service history and a letter of authenticity from the star.

The car was previously sold at Christie's in 2001 where it made £89,550.

Coys’ managing director of Chris Routledge said: “This must be the lowest mileage 512 TR available on the market today, with exceptional ownership provenance.”

The Testarossa successor is one of 40 lots including a 1969 Ferrari Dino 206GTs – one of 152 made – that was once owned by Canadian film director David Cronenberg and is expected to make £180-210,000.

Another Dino a 1974 246GTS, is estimated at £170-180,000.

British classics on offer include one of 50 1974 Jaguar E-type Commemorative special editions (£115-135,000) and a 1975 Aston Martin V8 (£55-65,000).
