Clapton's 'famous' Ferrari sold

Clapton's 'famous' Ferrari sold

A Ferrari previously owned by music legend Eric Clapton and radio presenter Chris Evans has fetched £66,500 at auction.

The rare 2003 Ferrari 575 Maranello, which has only covered 10,000 miles, was snapped up by a private buyer at a sale at Silverstone, Northamptonshire.

Described by Silverstone Auctions as a desirable car in its own right, the yellow Maranello was bought new by Clapton, who signed its service book, and was later sold to Evans.

Auction manager Guy Loveridge said the vehicle, which exceeded its guide price, was in lovely condition.

"It's a great car and we are not surprised that it fetched such a large amount of money," the auctioneer said. "Famous name provenance is always a help."
