1965 FERRARI 500 SUPERFAST, PETER SELLERS
'Metal underwear': A glance into Peter Sellers' garage
Cars played a major role in the life of Peter Sellers.
Classic Driver takes a look into his garage – with the help of the man who managed his collection while the limelight shone brightest…
That man is Richard Williams, who subsequently set up Classic Driver dealer R.S. Williams. “I got to know Peter when I was doing my Aston apprenticeship at Feltham; I then finished my apprenticeship at Newport Pagnell and was offered a job looking after his cars,” says Richard.
Being a celebrity in the 60s, it’s little surprise that Sellers had a thing for Ferraris.
Among his collection was a 500 Superfast, a 275 GTB and a 250 GT/E, the latter making a cameo appearance in ‘The Wrong Arm of the Law’ – a film that saw another of Sellers’ cars, an Aston Martin DB4 GT, put to work as a getaway vehicle.
We love to propose the 1/18 scale model of Peter Seller's car, right-hand drive and double exterior mirrors.
The model car sits on a grey alcantara base with grey stitching.
