A 1965 Jaguar XKE 4.2L Series I Roadster that Sir Elton John formerly owned just fetched around $130,000 (£82,140) at a recent Oxford, England auction. The British roadster was purchased by Elton John back in 1987 before he sold it at an auction in 2001 alongside other vehicles he owned.
With so many classic cars out there that one could collect, it’s sometimes difficult to pick out the right one for you. Each model clearly has their own dedicated fans and followers, but sometimes collectors are looking for a vintage machine that can boast rare qualities not seen in other vehicles. We believe this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad is one of those vintage machines.
If you’re a regular reader of AutoGuide, you’ll know that we’re big fans of the Range Rover Evoque. It looks better in person than it does in pictures, and the car-based chassis, coupled with an EcoBoost 4-banger is just right for 99% of Range Rover customers and their urban driving.
Mercedes-Benz‘s sociopath AMG sedans like the C63 AMG weren’t just created out of thin air.

Elvis Presley might be associated with Cadillacs in the public’s mind, but the superstar singer had a little-known affinity for German cars. Among his purchases were an ultra-rare BMW 507 roadster and this Mercedes-Benz 600 sedan, regarded as the zenith of Mercedes cars.
We normally try and stay away from “Cool Ebay Listings” or things of that nature, but this is a truly historic listing that you won’t see again for quite some time. Bring A Trailer, possibly the best resource for classic cars online, has an all-original, left-hand driver Toyota 2000GT up for sale.
You can be as baller as you want with a Bugatti Veyron, but there’s always someone else out there who will outdo you. In this case, it’s the Mullin Automotive Museum, who just purchased a Bugatti Atlantic Type 57SC for an enormous sum, between $30-$40 million. This easily bests the previous record holder, a 1961 Ferrari 250GT California Spyder, formerly owned by Hollywood actor James Coburn, which sold for roughly $12 million.
