Rockstar Ferrari and Lamborghini exotics seeking new owners
Search Driven for for sale
Three cars each owned by a rock 'n' roll God will go under the hammer next month - and the trio is expected to sell for a combined £1.1 million (NZ$2.0 million).
The standout model of the bunch is a super rare 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT that was originally bought by Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney. It will go under the hammer alongside one of Nick Mason's treasured Ferraris - both of which have an estimated values of around half a million.
The third model - a 1991 Lamborghini Diablo bought new by Rod Stewart - is undoubtedly the best value of the bunch. Despite prices for the iconic '90s supercar starting to soar, experts reckon it could sell for as little as £120,000 in March.
All three of the cars are being entered into the Bonhams Goodwood Members' Meeting Sale in West Sussex on Sunday 18 March.
Each one offers a unique opportunity for collectors of both classic vehicles and rockstar memorabilia to get their hands on prized assets that were once in the possession of some of the biggest names in music.
You'll need deep pockets if you want to compete with other bidders, though, as none of the trio will come cheap and could easily surpass their predicted valuations.
Sir Paul McCartney's 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2
The model that's been deemed the most valuable of the three is Sir Paul McCartney's 1967 Lamborghini 400 GT 2+2.
Bonhams has put an estimation of between £400,000 and £500,000 on the vehicle, which has the former Beatle on its records as the first owner.
Even without the superstar keeper on the log book, it's a highly sought after model, with just 224 ever made and only four being imported to UK soil.
The four-seater is fitted with its original 3.9-litre V12 engine that was - in the day - said to be capable of a top speed of 167mph.
The Beatles member took delivery of the car in February 1968, right at the height of the band's immeasurable popularity - another reason why it could exceed that half a million pound price tag.
Nick Mason's 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GT Spider
Nick Mason, famed drummer for Pink Floyd, is a huge Ferrari aficionado. He's had just about every ultra-expensive Prancing Horse as part of his collection, including a stunning 250 GTO and the highly-regarded F40.
This 1974 Dino 246 GT Spider was also once part of his garage of Ferraris and is one of just 1,274 built over a two-year period beginning in 1972 - making this one of the final models of the production run.
Setting it apart from just about every other of the 1,200 open-top 246 Dinos is the flared wheel arches, which was made available to owners by special request and fitted to just 21 of the cars built.
The 2.4-litre V6 engine powering the Dino was capable of 148mph flat out and later found its way into a number of other Italian performance machines, most notably the Lancia Stratos rally car.
Knowing Mason's keen eye for quality Ferraris, Bonhams reckons it is worth between £375,000 and £425,000.
Rod Stewart's 1991 Lamborghini Diablo
We think an estimation of £120,000 to £140,000 is pretty modest for this gorgeous '90s pin-up car, especially as Rod Stewart is the first registered keeper.
Values for the poster Lamborghini have been on the rise in recent years, which could make this one a steal.
The back story is pretty good, too - according to Bonhams, the artist, who has sold more than 100 million records worldwide and had six consecutive number one albums, bought the car for himself as a Christmas present in December 1991 as a four-wheeled pat on the back after releasing his 16th studio record, Vagabond Heart, which reached Platinum status in six countries.
The bright red Diablo, which is capable of 200mph, is everything you want from a supercar - a rocket-like 5.7-litre V12 engine, scissors door and a raucous soundtrack that could drop out one of Stewart's live performances.
