These 250 'plates could be the finishing touch for your classic Ferrari

A great add-on for your Ferrari 250 could be these DVLA Personalised Registrations, now on sale via a sealed bid auction.   250 SWB and 250 TDF - each with a reserve of £1200 – and highly prized private registrations for Ferrari aficionados, will be sold to the highest bidder when the sale closes at 2pm on Friday, October 31.Putting the plates’ value into perspective, Chris Evans recentkly paid a record £5.6mn for a 1961 250 GT SWB once owned by Hollywood legend, James Coburn.

As for the 250 TDF, according to the DVLA, it is the only registration that truly reflects Ferrari's formidable performance in the five-day 3345-mile Tour de France race.  Indeed, the 250 GT Tour de France is believe to be one of the rarest models in existence.Damian Lawson, marketing manager for DVLA Personalised Registrations, said: “These are two classic registrations for two classic Ferraris, there’s no doubt about that. It would be terrific to see them go to the right home.”To submit a sealed bid simply visit the website, follow the DVLA Auctions link and register for the sale. Once registered, bids can be submitted online.
