Auction : Ferrari 412 - Sir Michael Fay - Auckland

Just adding this one for the records. But mostly because the first owner was mentioned:

This stunning, right-hand drive, 412 was supplied new to Sir Michael Fay of Auckland, New Zealand by Maranello Concessionaires in Egham on 5th May 1986. They carried out its first service and delivered the car to Sir Michael for a European continental tour. Following his tour, the car was delivered back to Maranello and shipped to New Zealand, where it remained in private ownership

I had no idea who he is, so a quick Google revealed the following:

From this I know his age and as such he purchased this car when he was 37. And just purchasing such a car for an European continental tour, how's that!? Obviously the perfect car choice if you can afford it.

Update 7-10-2022: It's up for sale again:
