Nigel Mansell's Ferrari F40 among highlights at Zoute Grand Prix sale

Nigel Mansell's Ferrari F40 is expected to auction for up to $841,000

A Ferrari F40 formerly driven by Nigel Mansell is among the top lots of Bonhams' Zoute Grand Prix sale in Knokke-Le-Zoute, Belgium on October 10, with a valuation of $630,595-840,793.

The car entered production in 1987 to commemorate the marque's 40th anniversary and was the most powerful model available on the civilian market.

Mansell is among Britain's most celebrated racing drivers, having racked up 31 Formula 1 wins over the course of his career.

Philip Kantor, Bonhams' European head of motoring, commented: "The 1989 Ferrari F40 offered at Bonhams sale was delivered new to Nigel Mansell in 1989.

"A fierce and exciting racing driver, many remember him for his win or lose performance - risk taking and breath taking.

"As the last Ferrari conceived and built before Enzo Ferrari's death, the design and its ownership lineage make the F40 a highly desirable motor car for any fan of Ferrari and Formula One racing."

Bonhams' Goodwood sale is coming up on September 13 and will feature a wealth of classic cars, including a 1936 Lagonda LG45R Rapide and a 1930 OM Mille Miglia.

We have this jacket from legendary actor and racing driver Paul Newman.
