Does Being Formerly Owned By Chris Harris Add Any Value To This Ferrari F12 Berlinetta?

Previously owned by Top Gear presenter Chris Harris, this Ferrari F12 features a rather excellent spec.

The Ferrari F12 is without a doubt one of the finest, most thrilling supercars ever created, featuring perhaps the world’s best naturally aspirated V12 powertrain and a chassis that makes it shine.

This particular example was also formerly owned by popular car journalist and Top Gear presenter Chris Harris, which makes it arguably a bit more special for car nerds like us. No, we wouldn’t go as far as giving this F12 a full celebrity status, but nevertheless, it’s a nice thing to know. Whether this is of any value to you, we’ll leave it up for discussion in the comments below.

This gorgeous Ferrari V12 supercar will be offered on the Collecting Cars online auction platform, starting on Monday, March 23 and running for seven days.

The spec of this 2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is also very tasteful, finished in gunmetal grey over a brown leather interior with subtle orange stitching, while the odometer reads just 13,600 miles from new.

The car was originally delivered with the standard five-spoke Speedline wheels but under Chris Harris’ ownership, had them changed for a set of the lightweight Y-spoke alloys that save around 15 kg in unsprung weight.

Harris was actually the second owner before passing it on to its current keeper three years ago. The car was kept in a humidity-controlled parking space during ownership of the current owner.

Under the bonnet of the Ferrari F12 lies a 6.3-liter V12 engine that produces 730 HP, channeled to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Straight-line performance is quite staggering for a rear-drive, front-engine supercar, even today, with a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) coming in 3.1 seconds and a top speed of over 211 mph (340 km/h).

The car is being offered with all of its original books and maintenance records, the factory-supplied tools and an official Ferrari cover.
