Baby, you can drive his car: Ringo Starr's ultra-rare French touring car that was the world's fastest four-seater set to sell for £350,000

Friday, October 04, 2013

Ringo Starr's ultra-rare French touring car - once dubbed 'the world's fastest four-seater' - is set to sell for a staggering £350,000.

The Beatles drummer paid £5,570 for the Facel Vegal Facel II, which he bought at the height of the band's unprecedented musical career. Now, the glamorous car is expected to sell for more than 60 times its initial price tag at auction. Ringo bought the vehicle in 1964 after spotting it on a stand at the Earls Court Motor Show in London. The Beatles had just released their first movie A Hard Days Night and broken big time in the US - with the top five singles at one time in the American charts.
