For the serious collector, it’s not just the cars that are important. Collecting automobilia has long been popular, and when it comes to Ferrari, there is always something special that each individual wants to get their hands on.
Silverstone Auctions is holding a Ferrari and Memorabilia auction on May 18th and 19th that, along with some simply mouth-watering Ferrari’s, also includes a wealth of exciting and unique memorabilia of great interest to serious collectors.
If books and Ferrari literature are your thing, there’s something for you here. For example, not everyone can afford a Ferrari 250 model, but what about Lot 110, an original set of handbooks and documents in the correct leather pouch? A guide price of £10,000 should give you an idea of the rarity of such an item.
For racing fans, the lot before the above will be of interest. It’s an original poster from the 1958 British Grand Prix, held at Silverstone and won by Peter Collins for Ferrari, which can be yours for a guide price of under £1000 – try and find another one!
Plenty for Owners
Ferrari owners and collectors are meticulous about the details of their car, and this extends to the accessories that came with the car when new, but are sometimes not present when the car is sold later on. The sale includes lots such as a full Ferrari 456 leather luggage set, original tools for models such as the 308GTS, handbooks of varying rarity and more.
Or what about something for your garage? You can have an original, metal ‘Dino Service’ sign – as used by service centres in the early 1970’s and never for sale to the public – for around £3500, and wouldn’t that look fantastic hanging on your garage wall?
This is a two-day sale of great variety and depth, and bidding is available online as well as at the venue, so check out the catalogue now for more details of some truly fantastic lots.
