Elton John's Ferrari Up for Grabs at London Auction

A Ferrari 512 TR previously owned by British singer and songwriter Sir Elton John is to be sold at the COYS "Spring Classics" auction in London.

Built in 1991, this rare Maranello supercar has only 2,100 miles (3,380 km) on the clock and it's estimated to sell for over $134,000 (GBP 90,000 / EUR 103,000).

The car is in mint condition and its current owner, Philip Oram, has not driven it since making the purchase. The 512 TR comes with full service history and a letter of ownership authenticity form Sir Elton John, who used it for a mere 1,812 miles (2,916 km).

The Ferrari 512 TR was built between 1991 and 1994, as a successor for the Testarossa, in 2,280 units. The vehicle is powered by a 4.9-liter V12 Colombo engine and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, while top speed is rated at 195 mph (314 km/h).

The London sale will also feature a 1969 Ferrari Dino 206 GT, a 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS, a 1975 Aston Martin V8, and an exclusive 1974 Jaguar E-Type Commemorative.
