The only Ferrari motorcycle ever built to go under the hammer
Could anybody believe that Italian sports car Ferrari had only one motorbike in its kitty? Well, the fact is the custom-made bike was built as a tribute to the marque’s founder, Enzo Ferrari, by British engineer David Kay in 1990. The cool Ferrari 900 that took over 3,000 man hours to build, gives a top speed of 257kph and a sprint of 0-60 in under 3 seconds. These are great credentials for a motorcycle that is more than a couple of decades old. The current owner, Mr Kay who also happens to be a private collector from Britain, has displayed this beautiful baby as a work of art in the drawing room of his luxury home for the past 17 years.
The current owner has now decided to sell it at the Bonhams auction taking place in Stafford on April 29. It is estimated to fetch $120,000 – $160,000. According to the owner, ‘The noise of the bike is like a Messerschmitt chasing a Spitfire’, while a spokesman for auctioneers Bonhams states that ‘The bike is in immaculate condition’
