Silverstone Auctions has announced that it will be selling a collection of three delivery-mileage Italian exotics at the February 2015 Race Retro auction
A trio of ultra low-mileage 1990s Italian exotics have been consigned to Silverstone Auctions’ 21-22 February sale at the Race Retro event at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.
Possibly the most obscure of the offering is the very Marmite Alfa Romeo SZ. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that the Zagato-built Alfa is an incredibly striking design, and with a mere 808 km (502 miles) on the clock, it’s about the closest thing to a brand new SZ in existence. It’s difficult to put a value on that, but Silverstone reckons it could sell for £50,000-£70,000.
The most valuable car of the collection is undoubtedly the 1991 Ferrari Testarossa, with an estimate of £130,000-£150,000. With just 955 miles on the clock, the mileage has been confirmed by Ferrari, and the car comes with the certificate of authenticity from the Ferrari Classiche Department. Also included with the original exclusive Ferrari watch by Cartier, worth around €5000 alone, and the unused luggage set, which can still fetch €10,000 on the open market.
Last but not least is a Ferrari Mondial T, the most used of the trio, having racked up a grand total of 1180 miles. The Mondial is one of those ‘will it, won’t it’ classics, which has remained at the cheapest end of the Ferrari scale for some time. A perfect example like this is likely to attract attention from collectors looking for a solid investment, and like the Alfa, it has an estimate of £50,000-£70,000.
Other interesting items at the sale include a Don Law upgraded 680bhp Jaguar XJ220 (£165,000-£185,000), great looking Texaco-liveried Ford Sierra racing car (£32,000-£36,000) and a Mazda rotary engine-based coffee table (£350-£400).
