Mike Tyson’s F50 Expected To Be A Knockout At Auction
Ferrari F50s are rare beasts, so when they come up for sale it’s always big news for collectors. This one, however, is even more special because it was delivered to former heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson.
Having covered just 5,694 miles and being one of only 50 examples sold in America, the 520bhp car is expected to make a fortune when it goes under the hammer at Amelia Island, Florida, next month. RM Sotheby’s has put an estimate on it of between $2.2m and $2.4m (circa £1.8m to £1.9m).
That price tag would make it the second-most expensive F50 the auctioneer has ever sold, following a $3m (£2.4m) sale in Arizona earlier this year.
The Ferrari is described as being in ‘immaculate condition’, which is somewhat surprising considering who it belonged to. It also comes with Ferrari Classiche certification, although it has been modified with a Tubi exhaust to fully exploit the V12’s sonorous character.
The hammer will fall on March 11.
