Silverstone Auctions wants to benefit from this month attention offered to football and is auctioning a special car, belonging to a hero for on England`s best team. A 2000 Ferrari 550 Maranello with football star provenance will be offered for sale at this year’s Silverstone Classic motor sport festival on Saturday 30th July.
With just 36,600 miles from new, this very special Ferrari was formerly owned by the great Sir Geoff Hurst MBE, who famously led the England team to a World Cup 4-2 victory against Germany, scoring a hat-trick in the 1966 final at Wembley Stadium.
The low mileage, UK supplied car has been maintained by the vendor for the last two years. Now it is guided with a sale estimate of £120,000 to £150,000.
The car 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 two sets of keys, full Ferrari leather bound book pack, a fitted red Ferrari cover, a fresh MoT and full service history, with both Ferrari main agents and Ferrari specialists.
Silverstone Classic organisers will be recognising Sir Geoff and the England team’s 1966 World Cup win with a screening of a special car football match on the Saturday afternoon.
