A rare 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona, once owned by Sir Elton John, was hammered down by Silverstone Auctions for 625117 a few months ago.

It seems the pop star just can’t say no to buying cars. In the 1990s, Sir Elton possessed a significant car collection, with a particular fondness for British cars.

He owned everything from a Bentley S1 Continental Fastback to a Jaguar XJ220.

But by 2001, the Rocket Man chose to part with a large proportion of his collection, opting to auction 20 of the remarkable vehicles. It seems he just does not have time to drive all the dozens of cars in his collection.

Sympathies are unlikely from fellow Brits, who have to park their Toyotas in the street.
