Δύο αυτοκίνητα που ανήκουν σε διάσημους celebrities αναζητούν νέους ιδιοκτήτες. Η Maserati Quattroporte που βλέπεις ήταν ιδιοκτησίας του Sir Elton John. Διαθέτει πλούσιο εξοπλισμό, έχει διανύσει περίπου 45.000 χλμ και ο οίκος δημοπρασιών Classic Car Auctions που έχει αναλάβει την πώλησή της στις 19 Μαρτίου, εκτιμά πως θα πιάσει τιμή μεταξύ £15.000 και £17.000 (€19.700 – €22.350).
Από την άλλη, η Pontiac GTO του 1969 κάποτε άνηκε στην Κόρτνεϊ Κοξ, γνωστή από την τηλεοπτική σειρά “Τα Φιλαράκια” αλλά και στον Ντέιβιντ Αρκέτ, γνωστό από την συμμετοχή του στις ταινίες τρόμου “Scream“. Η GTO φορά έναν V8 6,6-λίτρων κινητήρα απόδοσης 350 ίππων, έχει διανύσει 75.000 χλμ και αν κάποιος θέλει να την κάνει δική του, πρέπει να βγάλει από τον τραπεζικό του λογαριασμό το ποσό των 22.500 ευρώ.
SIR ELTON JOHN’S MASERATI FOR AUCTION
A very special 2005 Maserati Quattroporte V, first owned by Sir Elton John, will be going under the hammer at Classic Car Auctions’ (CCA) March Sale, taking place on Saturday 19th March at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre, Leamington Spa.
Ordered new by Sir Elton, the car features a host of extras, including a rear DVD player and screen, games input, two headphones, remote control and six CD auto changer. Also included in the sale, the original Maserati welcome letter, unused personal 24hr concierge members card, and personal gift of a matching leather covered key tray, tool kit, gloves and car cover. The history file also includes national press cuttings from the sale of the car to its second owner in 2010.
Estimated at between £15,000 and £17,000, the car offers a great value example of Italian exotica, with Sir Elton’s name on the V5 certificate, a mere 28,000 miles on the clock, a fresh service and with an MoT until January 2017.
CCA classic car specialist, Arwel Richards, commented, “This is a wonderfully rare opportunity to buy an example of Italian exotica that goes like a rocket man. There’s something about the way this car looks at night, and the vendor should still be standing as he waves goodbye along the yellow brick road to the auction rostrum!”
CCA is no stranger to selling celebrity pre-owned cars at auction and cars like this could prove to be valuable assets. Two very special examples were sold at its December Sale last month. A 2007 Range Rover Sport first owned by none other than football superstar David Beckham was sold in front of a packed auction hall for £31,350, more than £8,000 over its lower estimate.
Also on the day, a beautifully restored 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible belonging to legendary British actor Charles Dance was also offered for sale. The car was sold in “out of the box” condition for £33,550, nearly £10,000 over its lower estimate.
Charles, who attended the sale, said “Classic Car Auctions could not have been more efficient. There was great atmosphere at the sale, skilfully handled by Jonathan Humbert, and his hammer fell at a very pleasing price for me. Despite my sadness at parting with a much-loved car, I left a happy man.”
CCA are currently inviting entries of classic cars and modern sports cars into the March sale, up to a value of £50,000. Anyone interested in selling a car with CCA should contact the team for further information or visit www.classiccarauctions.co.uk.
