Elton John's Pristine Ferrari 512 TR Headed to Auction
Sir Elton John has come to be one of the most iconic entertainers this era has ever seen; a musician, painter, actor, father- the man does it all. And like any well-versed super-celebrity, he has come to be the proud owner of boat loads of cash and a surprisingly good collection of classic cars. Like this Ferrari 512 Testarossa, or at least, what used to be his Ferrari 512 Testarossa. Just one of a 28 car collection, the original lot was auctioned off back in 2001, and now the second owner of this 1991 TR is placing the car back in auction at COYS in London next week.
With only 2,100 miles on the odometer (1,812 driven by Sir Elton himself), COYS managing director Chris Routledge says that "This must be the lowest mileage 512 TR available on the market today." The Ferrari is expected to fetch between £90- and £100,000 ($135-$150,000) when it hits the block at the COYS 'Spring Classics' next week in London. Source: COYS
