Elton John's the red rocket must be sold

360 Italian horses behind the driver's seat, a weight of 1560 pounds, and a height of just 1.1 metres.

If Elton John back in the early 1970s had wanted a car that could send him on the same type of timeless journey, which he sang about in the 'Rocket Man', so would Ferrari 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer not be something bad bid. The car could not fly, but was with its top speed of 280 km/h. one of the closest, back came a rocket approved for public roads.

The british singer had, however, already reached the stars, when he ordered the car in 1973. The same year he had released the album 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road', and now it was apparently just as much smack on the car as on the beat to 'Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)'.

Nothing, however, suggest that he rarely took the time to light the fuse. The car has until today been driven just 16,000 kilometers, and now the under the hammer at auction house Bonhams.

The typing of The Sun.

According to Bonhams, was the Ferrari 365 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer is both the most expensive and fastest car, because in its time it was introduced. The reputable auction house estimated that the car will bring between 2.2 and 2.6 million. the crowns, when it will be sent off to a new owner 7. april at 13: 00.

Or zero hour 1 PM, as Elton John have enough detail would call auktionstidspunktet.

For the money you get one of the just 58 right-hand drive copies of the Ferrari 356 GT4 Berlinetta Boxer, which was built for the uk market. To get a car, if the combination of Ferrari red paintwork, the seats in the cremelæder and bourdeaux-upholstery on the dashboard is selected by a 1970s'the big style icons.

And then, of course, the Voxson radio, which, along with air conditioning accounted for the singer's two options on the car ekstraudstyrsliste.


Bonhams writes in salgsopslaget, to the 12-cylinder engine in the red Ferrari has been meticulously renovated by a specialist seven years ago, and that the resulting papers, which dates back to 1977. The auction house goes so far as to call the car 'one of the very best copies that currently is on the market'.

It appears not to salgsopslaget, how many years, the car has been in Elton John's hands. The Sun wonder, however, that the car has been a part of the singer's bilsamling, and that it is also the reason for the low numbers on the trip meter.

According to The Telegraph began Elton John to gather at the expensive vehicles in the beginning of the 1970s, and even though the particular Aston Martin had his interest, then snuck the auktionsaktuelle Ferrari apparently also in.

In 1988, he had, according to the newspaper 14 cars, and in 2001 the collection has grown to 28.
