Inside, Eric went for a Castoro Light Brown leather-trimmed interior, featuring a contrasting black upper dashboard, and carbon fibre and silver trim inlays.
Whoever wins the bidding will also get the car's private plate 'S999 GTB' which is worth decent money by itself.
The 599 GTB has a 6.0-litre V12 engine producing 612bhp and driving the rear wheels via a six-speed ‘F1 SuperFast’ automatic gearbox.
The car's most recent service cost a whopping £10,000 so you'll need deep pockets to run it as well as buy it.
