Football legend’s Ferrari goes to auction

120716-silvauc-a

A 2000 Ferrari 550 Maranello with football star provenance will be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions at this year’s Silverstone Classic motor sport festival.

With just 36,600 miles from new, this very special Ferrari was formerly owned by Sir Geoff Hurst, who famously scored a hat-trick for England in their 1966 World Cup Final win over West Germany.

July 30 marks the 50th anniversary of the occasion, and is the exact same day that the car will be offered at auction at the classic motor sport festival at the Silverstone race circuit.

The low-mileage, UK-supplied car has been maintained in excellent condition, stored in a correctly heated and dehumidified facility by the vendor for the last two years. Now ready to be enjoyed once more, it is competitively guided with a sale estimate of £120,000 to £150,000.

This rare right-hand drive example has significant investment potential, with 550 Maranellos gaining significant momentum in the collector car market, and is finished in Argento Nurburgring with black leather Daytona style seats, full carbon interior trim, along with a leather headlining and silver-painted brake calipers.

With the football star’s name appearing on the V5C as the immediate previous owner, the car will be sold with full Ferrari leather-bound book pack, a fitted red Ferrari cover, a fresh MoT and full service history.
