All four Ferrari Dinos changed hands at Silverstone Auctions' sale which was held during the hugely successful National Ferrari Owners' Day at Sywell Aerodrome, with 837 Ferraris in attendance and 1800 people. The headline result was posted by a 43,650-mile 1974 246 GTS, finished in its original shade of Nocciola Metallizzato, that drew £388,125 (est. £375-425k). The right-hand drive example with factory-flares and Ferrari Classiche certification was supplied new to the Sultan of Pahang in Malaysia, with just two owners since, and was restored by John Pogson at Italia Autosport between 2016 and 2018.
