One off FERRARI badged bike goes to Auction

Approved by the Ferrari family, the hand built machine is expected to reach an estimated £180,000 - £200,000 (approx $280,000)

A ONE-OFF Ferrari-badged motorcycle is to go under the hammer at Bonhams auction in Switzerland on December 20th.

The machine was built by David Kay Engineering and received complete approval and good wishes for the project from Enzo's son, Piero Ferrari.

But hold your horses; this isn't an ultra-high performance machine - far from it. The 1995 in-line four 900cc motorcycle, produces 105bhp at 8,800rpm and has an optimistic claimed top speed of 165mph. It's expected to fetch £180,000 - £200,000 at Bonhams' annual motoring sale in Gstaad, Switzerland.

Built by David Kay Engineering as a tribute to Enzo Ferrari, the unique vehicle bears the famous prancing horse badge. In a letter dated Maranello, 23 May 1990, the highly reputed MV Agusta 'guru' David Kay received complete approval and good wishes for the project from Enzo's son Piero Ferrari.

The one-off 900cc engine, which is transverse, has a double overhead camshaft, four cylinder, eight-valve unit with magnesium and alloy casings, and is driven through a five speed gearbox.

Top sepc gear adorns the bike: Forcelle Italia upside down forks, massive twin piston Brembo disc brakes front and rear (six pot calipers to the front, four to the rear) and special 17-inch hand spun Astralite wheels. WP twin rear shock absorbers complete the basic specification. Go to bonhams.com for more info.


FUGLY how did Ferrari put their name to this

It was almost 19 years ago, styles were different. Disco and mullets seemed reasonable once upon a time too...

Anyway I'm thinkin' about pickin it up cuz I was wanting a new trackbike anyway.
