Hammond’s dream Ferrari up at auction
Yes, the very Ferrari Daytona that Richard raced against James’ 1000bhp powerboat a few years back is available to buy. How much? Between £180,000 and £210,000.
You may remember that the 365GTB/4, which auctioneers reckon will fetch £20,000 more than a new 458, lost against James’ 80mph XSR48 boat (replete with carbonfibre convenience) in a race between Portofino, Italy and St Tropez, France. But it’s fair to say Hammond had a great deal more fun.
Hamster isn’t the only celeb that’s driven the 38-year-old Fez. It’s had royal buttocks on it, namely HRH the Prince of Wales’ - he borrowed it for a weekend back in 1973. It was also Ferrari’s original press car during the model’s launch in 1968, too.
Fancy sticking your hand up? The sale, run by Historics at Brooklands, will be held on May 18 from 5pm at the Brooklands Museum, Surrey.
