A light blue Ferrari purchased by the late John Lennon of the Beetle’s just hours after passing his driving test may grab a lofty $220,000 at Bonham’s Paris auction on February 5th.
It is a stunning light blue Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 coupe that was delivered to Lennon in February of 1965- the very day he earned his driving privileges. Nice. It would seem that Lennon had a taste for luxury cars and exotic rental cars, as a Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limousine joined the Ferrari 330 in his garage that same year.
You know the one I am referring to, Lennon’s psychedelic Rolls-Royce limo, the eyesore of all hippy acid-induced eyesores. The colorful limo sold in June of 1985 for $2.3 million at auction, setting a record for pop-memorabilia. Recently the less-than-luxurious muddled green Lennon 1972 Chrysler Town and Country station wagon sold at auction for an undisclosed amount.
