A 2000 Ferrari 550 Maranello once belonging to English football star Sir Geoff Hurst is to be auctioned on the 50th anniversary of the national team’s famous 1966 World Cup win. It is estimated at £120-150,000.
The 36,000-mile grant tourer will be sold at Silverstone Auctions’ Silverstone Classic sale on 30 July, and as well as being of interest to football fans is expected to prove a draw for modern classic enthusiasts – not to mention investors.
The model has enjoyed a meteoric rise in value over the past few years, with right-hand-drive examples such as this attracting a great deal of interest. Sir Geoff Hurst remains the last owner on the V5C, and the car has spent the past two years stored in a heated and dehumidified facility.
Finished in Argento Nürburgring with black leather Daytona-style seats and full carbon interior trim, the Ferrari also boasts full service history from specialists and main dealers, plus a host of documentation including its original leather-bound book pack.
