A red Ferrari sports coupe Elton John bought with royalties from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is headed to auction -- where it's expected to sell for $600,000!
London's Suntabloid says the 365 GTB/4 Daytona model will go up for bids on September 21st. Although more than 40 years old, the car -- powered by a robust V12 engine -- has been driven just 82,000 miles. And it's one of just 182 right-hand-drive Dayton as ever made.
Don't expect to find any Elton memorabilia in the car -- he sold the Ferrari just two years buying it.
- Remember Britain drives on the left side (as does Japan); so cars have to be specially made for use on their roads.
- Elton's collection also once included a 1974 Ferrari 365 Berlinetta Boxer and a 1997 Aston Martin Vantage.
- Silverstone Auctions has sold several other cars Elton owned, including a 2014 Bentley -- which went for $98,000.
- With two growing kids, I'll bet Elton's an SUV guy these days.
Take a look and listen -- here's video of the same model Ferrari Elton John once owned.
