A generous businessman has left two multimillion-pound Ferraris to the UK Sea Rescue service, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in his will.The two 1960s cars, valued at £2 million and £6 million, were a bequest from Northamptonshire-basedRichard Colton, a prominent member of the Ferrari Owners' Club.They will be sold at auction in October to raise funds for the coastal search and rescue charity.Guy Rose, legacy manager at the RNLI, said the charity was 'humbled' to receive the two vehicles - aFerrari 250 GT SWB and a Ferrari 275 GTB/4 chassis.He said: 'Leaving a legacy in a will is a very personal decision so we are humbled that Mr Colton chosethe RNLI as the beneficiary of the sale of his two prized Ferraris.'The proceeds will go towards helping our volunteer lifeboat crews save lives at sea.'As a charity, the RNLI relies on donations to fund its lifesaving work. In fact, six out of ten lifeboatlaunches are only made possible through gifts left to us in wills.'Whether these legacies are large or small, we are deeply grateful to supporters like Mr Colton for theirgenerosity and support for our charity.'The RNLI, which was founded in 1824, intends to use the proceeds to help fund a lifeboat, which willbe named after Mr Colton and his wife Caroline.ferrari2ferrari3
