elite athletes with great worldwide fame, they are people prone to spend (or invest) money in cars exclusive. This is no novelty, since it has been so for decades, although it is true that at least in the last few years is something more usual or more is known of what was known before. Mike Tyson he earned a great fame for being a boxer – champion of the “Heavy Weights”, in addition, for many other things outside the sport.
The famous champion was the first owner of the fabulous Ferrari F50 that we see in the images. This car had a limited production of just 349 units, of which only 50 came to the other side of the Atlantic; this being one of them. state of conservation is hardly improved, having traveled very few miles in its 22 years of life, and with the certificate of Ferrari Classiche.
The next month of march will go to auction in the Contest of Elegance of Amelia Island, from the hand of one of the most well known companies in the world, RM Sotheby’s. In the case of this model so appreciated (considered one of the best vehicles of the brand), the fact of having belonged in the first instance the boxer and his excellent state, it is more than likely that the price of the unit is very high. The company auctions expected to raise between 2 and 2.3 million euros.
Behind the seats is the engine V12 4700 cc and 520 HP that gives life to this piece of engineering. The benefits for the decade of the 90 were virtually impossible to reach by their rivals with a 0 to 100 in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 325 km/h. A gem that should not remain locked in any garage, but to be enjoying every road and in every circuit. Like any admirer of the boxer with a good current account is its next owner.
