JOHN TERRY has fulfilled his childhood dream by owning a garage full of Ferraris worth around £4million.
The Chelsea legend loves the Italian brand so much he has several of the classy motors sitting in the garage of his Surrey home.
From the incredibly rare Ferrari Enzo (only 400 were ever produced) that’s worth a stonking £2m to the sleek, sophisticated 275 GTB that dates back to the 1960s that can be worth as much as £1,5m, Terry, 38, is a Ferrari aficionado .
And if that’s not enough, his everyday runner is a £170,000 458 Spider.
FERRARI ENZO – £2m
In 2013, after lifting the Europa League, he splashed out on the iconic Enzo – originally produced in 2002.
It was developed using Formula One technology, has a carbon-fibre body, and can reach a top speed of 221 mph.
I used to go to a showroom in Surrey, they had Enzos, and the Enzo had been my dream car growing up but could never afford it.”
Terry’s Enzo was a display car at the 2003 Amsterdam Motor Show and it had 4,163 miles on the clock when the ex-England international bought it.
Terry admitted in an interview with Petrolicious that he had always had his eyes on one, and wished he’d been able to buy one sooner.
He said: “I was probably about 20, 21. I used to go to a showroom in Surrey, they had Enzos, and the Enzo had been my dream car growing up but could never afford it.
“It's one of those things on the bucket list. Unfortunately, they were a lot cheaper back then as well. Wish I'd have bought one back then.
“I just loved the look and the limited availability of stuff like the Enzo. Not many on the road, one gets crashed per year as well, so they're going down.
“It was an investment as well for the sake of the kids and stuff like that, but just loved to look at the Enzo and the classic cars. I love it.”
FERRARI 275 GTB – £1.5m
If you had money, and you lived in the swinging ’60s, the 275 GTB was one of the best cars on the market.
And in popular culture the model became iconic when it was bought by ‘King of Cool’ Steve McQueen when he filmed classic movie, Bullitt.
JT showed of his purchase in 2015 on Instagram, that could’ve cost him anything up to £1.5m.
The Aston Villa assistant coach bought the car from dealer Tom Hartley Jr, who has helped him build his Ferrari collection over the years.
“In England. I deal with Tom and he advises me on this stuff,” Terry revealed.
“I've had my eye on a couple of his cars for a few years and just decided to take the plunge (on the 275 GTB). I've always appreciated it.”
And despite being made a long time ago, the 275 GTB is no slouch either.
It boasts a 0-60 mph time of just over six seconds, which is still faster than most cars today.
FERRARI 458 SPIDER – £170,000
It’s not a bad every day runner is it?
When Terry wants to go to the shops, he often takes his 458 Spider with him, and why not?
Capable of hitting 0-60 in a staggering 3.3 seconds, it’ll get you where you want to go fast.
And, of course, it doesn’t cheap with a price tag of around £170,000.
Other footballers who love the 458 Spider include Mario Balotelli and Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, who all own one.
Terry invested in the Spider back in 2012, and often travelled to Chelsea’s Cobham training ground in it.
FERRARI TESTAROSSA – £150,000
Although he hasn’t shared any images of them on social media, Terry’s Ferrari collection also includes a Testarossa (worth £150k in good nick), as made famous by Tom Selleck in Magnum PI, and a Lusso, that today costs around £200k.
But Terry doesn’t just confine himself to supercars, and admittedly does like something a little more comfortable from time to time.
That’s why he’s also been seen over the years driving motors including a Rolls-Royce Wraith (£250k), a Bentley Continental GT (£160k), as well as a special edition gold Range Rover Overfinch (£90k).

“Range Rover, that's my day to day with the kids, school run and stuff like that,” Terry revealed
“I've got the Range Rover for the family, and I've obviously got my cars that I love, which is the Enzo.”
When it comes to getting behind the wheel, it’s clear that Terry loves to live life in the fast lane.
