If you are a huge fan of the 1980′s British band Duran Duran, then we might have the ultimate fan collectible item for you. No its not some sweaty t-shirt or an autographed poster, but a very rare car.

The car in question is the very rare 1989 Aston Martin V8 Zagato Volante, and it was originally ordered by Simon LeBon, the lead singer of Duran Duran.

The Zagato Volante is one of the most collectible cars in the world, and since only 37 were ever made, their prices are likely to only go up with time. Having a previous celebrity owner doesn’t hurt this cars cred either.

This particular car features a 5.3-liter, V8 motor, mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, and since its birth has covered just 3000-miles. It also comes with a full service history courtesy of Aston Martin, so it probably is one of the nicest examples of this model available anywhere.

So if you have the necessary £99,950 ($162,000) and an old Duran Duran cassette, you can sing along to Rio in a genuine piece of automotive and rock and roll history.
