Businessman gifts Ferraris to the RNLI

A pair of rare classic Ferraris owned by a Northamptonshire-based businessman will be auctioned to help the life-saving work of the RNLI.

The cars were left by Richard Colton who made his fortune in shoe distribution. Richard, who was said to be nervous of the sea, had owned the cars for forty years, travelling extensively around Europe in them.

The sale at Duxford in October is attracting worldwide attention and is expected to result in the most generous gift ever left to the charity.
