Elton John's 512 TR Up For Auction

Celebrity

A Ferrari 512 TR once owned by music legend Sir Elton John will be hitting the auction block for the second time.

The Rocket Man himself apparently likes to drive fast, specifically in Ferraris. Sir Elton John was once the owner of this Ferrari 512 Testarossa that’s now reportedly going up for auction for a second time. The singer and songwriter and recent first time father is also a car guy who once had 28 cars in his private collection, which was mostly auctioned off back in 2001. This 512 TR was one of those cars and it sold for £98,000 with only 1,812 miles on the odometer at the time.

And now, with only 300 additional miles on the clock, it’s set to hit the auction block again in London next week at Coys Spring Classics Sale. The car’s second owner has managed to keep it in pristine condition and it even comes with a complete service history and letter of ownership authenticity from Sir Elton. It’s finished in Rosso Corsa with beige leather interior and it’s recently been serviced where it had its cambelts replaced. The Managing Director of Coys, Chris Routledge, stated that "This must be the lowest mileage 512 TR available on the market today." It’s expected to fetch somewhere between £90,000 – £110,000.
