Grab Yourself A Bargain As Seized Classic Car Collection Is Auctioned Off

It must be pretty galling to see your entire classic car collection seized and then sold off to the general public, but that’s exactly the fate that’s befallen one Italian businessman.

It’s not clear why his 420-strong treasure trove, which includes 44 Ferraris and 72 Porsches, was confiscated, but all will be auctioned off without reserve

The ensemble is going under the hammer at Sotheby’s in Milan, where a three-day-long sale begins tomorrow, hosting bidders from 45 nations.

According to The Times, the most valuable cars are a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/6C, pictured above, which is expected to fetch between 2.4 million and 2.8 million euros (£2.03m to £2.4m), and a 1.1m-1.3m euro (£932,300-£1.1m) 2004 Maserati MC12 pictured below.

There are more modest lots, too, including an eye-catchingly yellow 1986 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth valued at a paltry 10,000 to 12,000 euros (£8,500 to £10,200).
