EJ's 365 GTB/4 to be Part of UK Auction

Written by Chief Editor.

Any Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona is special, but there's one that was originally owned by Elton in the seventies.

 
The red vehicle (a photo accompanies this article) is set to go under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions at its June 5th event, which is an all-Ferrari sale, to be held in association with the Ferrari Owners' Club of Great Britain as part of the National Ferrari Owner's Day celebration at Sywell Park.
 
Incidentally, this was sold by Silverstone Auctions in 2019. According to the listing, Elton took delivery of this 365 GTB/4 on August 3, 1972, through Maranello Concessionaires Ltd. It's said to be one of just 158 365 GTB/4s produced in right-hand drive for the UK market, and believed to be the first Ferrari ever purchased by the pop vocalist. 
 
He owned the car until 1975.
 
The auction is set for 2 p.m. GMT.
