George Foreman’s Ferraris, Porsches, and Different Epic Automobiles Are Heading to Public sale
George Foreman is ready to part ways with his knockout car collection.
The two-time world heavyweight champion, who has established himself as a noteworthy collector, has decided to auction off more than 50 of his prized rides on Hagerty Marketplace this December.
“I have been a car collector and enthusiast most of my life, but the time has come for me to share my cars with other like-minded enthusiasts,” Foreman said in a statement.
Foreman remains one of the oldest and most decorated boxers in history. He’s one of the richest, too, accumulating a fortune of $300 million with the success of his eponymous countertop grill. A fair share of that money has been spent on building his seriously impressive car collection.
The vehicles on offer span nearly every decade of production, from the 1930s right up to today. (The earliest example is a historic Ford Model A Cabriolet A400 that rolled off the line in 1931.) The four-wheelers hail from a variety of marques, too, including Ferrari, BMW, Porsche, Rolls-Royce, and Bentley, to name but a few.
Leading the pack is a 2005 Ford GT that has been owned by Foreman since new. The stunner features a Mark IV Red exterior with white racing stripes and an Ebony Black leather interior. It also sports painted calipers, a McIntosh Stereo System, and lightweight aluminum BBS wheels. Perhaps most importantly, the pristine ride has less than 790 miles on the dial.
Another highlight is the single-owner 2000 BMW Z8. The four-wheeler showcases one of the rarest color combinations offered by the German marque. In fact, it is one of just 37 featuring Topaz Blue Metallic over a Crema and black interior. Other notable lots include a 2002 Ferrari 360 Modena and a 1987 Ferrari Testarossa.
“Being able to offer them to the more than million-strong Hagerty audience is the best way to ensure they get the attention they deserve,” adds Foreman.
As you might expect, Foreman’s collection has been in long-term static storage. The cars will also receive mechanical attention before being driven to ensure they are up to snuff.
President of Hagerty Marketplace Kenneth Ahn anticipates strong interest and bidding for the cars. The respective sales will close between December 11 and 21, with multiple lots ending each weekday. That’s your Christmas shopping sorted, then.
