JAMIROQUAI frontman Jay Kay is selling two of his Ferraris – including his first ever supercar.
The petrolhead rock star, 48, has owned dozens of interesting cars over the past 20 years, ranging from Minis to Maseratis.
He also owned the Lamborghini Diablo from his Cosmic Girl hit but this Ferrari is what he considers his original supercar.
The 1998 Ferrari 550 Maranello headlines Jay Kay’s garage spring clean.
The immaculate motor is in a gunmetal grey with a red leather interior.
Fitted with a 5.5-litre V12 engine, the 550 Maranello is capable of doing 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 199mph.
It has been driven just 13,980 miles over the past 20 years and is expected to sell for £160,000 when Silverstone Auctions sell it on May 18 at its Ferrari Owners’ Club GB sale.
Jay Kay’s 550 Maranello will be sold alongside his 2011 Ferrari FF – the iconic Italian firm’s first ever four-wheel drive car.
This model has a 6.3-litre V12 engine which gives it a 0-60mph time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 208mph.
Unlike most Ferraris, the FF has rear seats and a large boot and was partly designed so customers could have a ‘Prancing Horse’ they could drive to the Alps in for a skiing holiday.
The FF has been given a guide price of £135,000 ahead of the sale at Silverstone.
Nick Whale, managing director, Silverstone Auctions, said: “We are delighted that Jay Kay has entrusted Silverstone Auctions once again with the sale of two cars from his private collection.
