John Lennon’s first car, put on auction

The first car that John Lennon, the former Beatles frontman, bought, will be auctioned by Bonhams British house. It is a 1965 Ferrari 330 GT.

The auction will take place at the Grand Palais in Paris on February 5 and the auction’s starting price estimated by British officials is between 120,000 and 170,000 euros.

The story that lies behind the purchase of this car is a special one for the British singer. In February of 1965, Lennon obtained his driving license, and a number of auto dealers crowded his yard with a large number of cars. Finally, John decided to buy the Ferrari 330 GT for the sum of 2,000 pounds.
