Chris Evans puts classic Ferrari up for sale


If you've got a lump of cash burning a hole in your pocket, we reckon you could do much worse than making radio DJ Chris Evans an offer for his 1959 Ferrari 250 LWB California.

The ginger car-nut bought the classic piece of automotive history in 2007, but no longer has room for it in his well-stocked garage following the purchase of a short-wheelbase California in 2008 which hit the record books, selling for a whopping £5.6 million.

While there is no price set on this pristine-condition Italian it's unlikely to go for quite as much. Though its rarity means it will probably still command a price tag with plenty of zeroes on the end.

And there'll be no need to worry about the car's heritage either; the 250 California comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Ferrari factory in Maranello.

On sale at HR Owen in South Kensington it is still in the original Verde Pino Metallizzato colour with a cream leather interior. Definitely one to add to the dream garage.
