A Ferrari car previously owned by guitarist Eric Clapton and radio presenter Chris Evans has sold for £66,500 at auction in Northamptonshire.

The buyer of the 2003 Ferrari 575 Maranello with 10,000 miles on the clock was not named.

Silverstone Auctions said at the sale that the yellow Maranello was bought new by Clapton, who signed its service book and later sold it to Evans.

Manager Guy Loveridge said the vehicle exceeded its guide price on Saturday.

"It's a great car and we are not surprised that it fetched such a large amount of money," the auctioneer said.
