Lennon’s Ferrari up for auction

AltThe first car bought by John Lennon after he passed his driving test is being offered for sale at auction.

The Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Coupe was bought by the Beatle in 1965 and is expected to sell for between 120,000 euros ($A156,188) and 170,000 euros ($A221,267).
Lennon's biographer, Philip Norman, described how car dealers descended on the singer's home when the news emerged that he had passed his test and offered him a "gleaming smorgasbord" of luxury cars.

But it was the Ferrari that caught his eye, with Lennon paying STG2,000 for the car, It was soon joined by his trademark Rolls-Royce, complete with psychedelic paintwork, and a Mini.

The car will be sold by auction house Bonhams at a sale in Paris on February 5.
