One of Britain’s most iconic vehicles, owned by one of its most iconic stars, will be heading to RM Auctions in London estimating to fetch an impressive $482,880 – $611,650 (£300,000-£380,000).
The 400 GT was once described by Lamborghini chief test driver Valentino Balboni as the best sounding car of all time. Perhaps that’s what made it so attractive to music legend Sir Paul McCartney.
Now McCartney’s 1967 400GT can be yours, because it will be hitting the auction stage at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 1.
Lamborghini only made 247 examples of the 400 GT and this one being a right-hand drive version is rarer still, although that might make the car less appealing to a North American buyer. Projected selling price of this example is in the $162,000 to $194,000 range.
The sale will be handled by Bonham’s Auction House, a company known to attract rich collectors, so it will be interesting to see who buy’s this vehicle and what price it actually fetches!
