A stunning 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona, once owned by Sir Elton John will be auctioned at The Silverstone Classic Sale, on the 29th July. This beauty is one of only 158 genuine right-hand drive vehicles supplied, finished in Rosso Chiaro with a black interior. The 1972 Ferrari Daytona has a powerful V12 engine mated to a five-speed gearbox producing a respectable 352 hp and a 175 mph top speed.
“The Daytona was billed as the fastest road car in the world in its day, faster than the Lamborghini Miura released two years earlier! The car presents in exceptional condition having been very well maintained by its previous owners, including Sir Elton John, adding extra appeal and distinction to this rare and collectible classic car.” – said auctioneer Will Smith.
The auction house anticipates the Daytona will sell for £525,000 to £575,000 – $677k and $750k at current exchange rates.
