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 his luxury home’s drawing-room for the past 17 years.
The current owner has now decided to sell it at the Bonhams auction 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.’
