Mike Tyson’s Ferrari F50 is for sale with just 6,000 miles – the predicted price is INCREDIBLE | The Sun
A FERRARI F50 once owned by one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time Mike Tyson is going under the hammer.
Only 349 Ferrari F50s were ever made and only 55 ever went to the US, making this, the 73rd F50 made, a very special car – with a very special potential price.
This particular car was finished on 13th February 1996 and 'Iron Mike' was the second owner during the same year, at the peak of his boxing career.
In the 26 years since it was made the car has covered just 6,200 miles.
It has also benefitted from a major service at a Ferrari dealership in Florida, with around £70,000 having been spent on it over the past six months.
Still, that's not much when you consider what this F50 could fetch when it goes under the hammer at a Gooding and Company auction being held at Pebble Beach in the US next weekend.
