Three red, Italian supercars are estimated to make £290,000 in total when they go on sale at Silverstone Auctions next year.
A Ferrari Testarossa, Mondial T and Alfa Romeo SZ are all up for grabs at the Race Retro event at Stoneleigh Park next February, Silverstone Auctions has revealed. The Testarossa is expected to sell for the highest amount, with an estimate of £150,000. Although it was made in 1991, it has only driven 955 miles, which explains why it's predicted to sell for such a high amount. Even the original Cartier watch and luggage set that were given away with the car, are still present, reports bt.com.
The Mondial T, which also dates back to 1991, was the last Ferrari to be built with a four-seat, mid-engine layout. Much like the Testarossa, it has barely travelled in its 23 years of existence with just 1,180 miles covered by the vehicle, and auctioneers expect it to fetch between £50,000 and £70,000 when it goes on sale.
Lastly, the rare Alfa Romeo SZ is also estimated to make £70,000 at auction. It is one of 998 models that were ever made, and this will be the first time the wider market will be able to get its hands on one. It's in great condition too, having only clocked up 502 miles in its lifetime, reports yahoo.com.
Guy Lees-Milne, general manager and classic car specialist at Silverstone Auctions, said: "This is a very special collection of Italian exotica and each of the cars is in almost brand new condition. It's rare to find one or even two of these cars with such low mileage but to find three is something special indeed."
