In our opinion, there is nothing more exciting than a great car owned by a great celebrity, with we at Limo Broker being lucky enough to boast some pretty extraordinary cars on our books. This is why we are thrilled to learn of a new Rolls Royce up for grabs. According to sources, a Roller previous owned by the one and only Frank Sinatra is on the market.
But, unlike many celebrity cars, this car was actually used by the music sensation, not just left in a garage to rust. Bought for the ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ singer, the 1984 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible was a 70th birthday present, gifted to Sinatra by fellow Rat Pack members Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin.
A £125,000 price tag
Brought over from New York to the UK when purchased after the star’s death, the car will now go up for auction at the NEC Classic Motor Show Sale in Birmingham. Taking place on November 10th, the car is expected to fetch a commendable £125,000. Having recently had £47,000 spent on it to restore it, the Rolls Royce is in a truly spectacular state.
“Frank Sinatra is a name that has remained prominent in the world of music and culture and even since his death in 1998, Sinatra’s films and music are still revered as some of the greatest of all time,” said Arwel Richards, classic car specialist at Silverstone Auctions.
“Offering Ol’ Blue Eyes’ Rolls-Royce at auction for the first time in its history presents an amazing opportunity for film, music and car fans alike. The influence Sinatra still holds over the music and film industry to this day is real evidence of the respect and love he garnered throughout his career.”
