Unbeatable Ferrari roars to sale price above £7m
A classic Ferrari raced to victory by Sir Stirling Moss has been sold for more than £7 million – making it one of the most expensive cars sold in Britain.
Sir Stirling, 83, drove the Ferrari 250 GT SWB in 1960 when he won three races out of three.
The following year, with Mike Parkes behind the wheel, the same car chalked up a further three victories and a second place.
Chassis number 2119, which has been owned by businessman Nigel Corner since 2003, was privately sold in the past six weeks, but because sales of classic Ferraris are handled 'behind closed doors' like those of fine works of art, news about the sale has only recently surfaced.
