John Lennon’s first car, a 1965 Ferrari 330GT, is heading to a Bonhams auction at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 12, 2013.
Finished in Azzuro blue paint, the classic Ferrari also has a matching blue interior and was priced at a little over $10,000 (£6,500) in February 1965. Lennon would own the car until October 1967, putting on over 20,000 miles in the 330GT.
The vehicle has since been restored to its original state and is expected to fetch between $275,000 to $340,000 at the auction. It is one of only 500 of its type built and will come with its original DUL 4C registration restored by the DVLA. Extensive documentation of its history will also come with the vehicle, and a correspondence with Lennon is just icing on the cake.
