BONHAMS’ annual Festival of Speed sale has seen some spectacular results with a Ferrari among the multimillion-pound sales.

The rare ‘Fearsome Four-Nine’ Ferrari 375-Plus went under the hammer at Goodwood for £10.7m on Friday.

Robert Brooks, Bonhams’ co-chairman, said: ‘We’ve had a truly diverse range of spectacular motor cars at our sale this year, causing great excitement in the sale room for both spectator and bidder alike, and achieving an outstanding result.

‘With a total of £22.6m worth sold in four hours, it’s been another fantastic Festival of Speed for Bonhams.’

Bonhams and Goodwood racing car historian Doug Nye, added: ‘This sale has offered a phenomenal range of really special and important cars with their various classes.

‘Above all, each of the prime cars offered has links with some of the greatest racing drivers of all time – names like Jim Clark, Graham Hill, John Surtees and so many more.

‘It’s always a pleasure to see new owners’ delight as the gavel falls.’
