Twelve classic Ferraris worth over £15million are up for sale – and amazingly they all have low mileage.
The stylish supercars are from a massive private collection going under the hammer at the same time – with one of the Italian red machines having covered just 15 miles.
The flash motors are among 46 cars being sold at auction next month.
Nearly half of them – 21 – are classic and modern Ferrari models dating back to the 1950s.
The centrepiece of the collection – being sold without reserve – is the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta by Scaglietti.
It is tipped to sell for up to £7.5million and has just 3,700 miles on the clock.
