Luxury Cars: Buy John Lennon´s 1965 Mercedes- Benz – When pop music icon John Lennon sings, ‘Baby you can drive my car’, he means it! A 1965 Mercedes- Benz 230SL belonging to the co-founder of The Beatles is all set to go under the hammer at Worldwide’s Scottsdale Auction.
The historic motorcar adds up to the Scottsdale lineup to woo all Beatles fans. Specially ordered right-hand drive and automatic transmission by John Lennon, the car was delivered to one of the most influential and celebrated music icons in London in 1965. This is a rare chance for a limited edition collector to make a once in a lifetime acquisition.
Born and raised in Liverpool, Lennon became involved in the skiffle craze as a teenager; his first band, the Quarrymen, evolved into the Beatles in 1960. When the group disbanded in 1970, Lennon embarked on a solo career that produced albums including John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and Imagine, and songs such as “Give Peace a Chance”, “Working Class Hero”, and “Imagine”. After his marriage to Yoko Ono in 1969, he changed his name to John Ono Lennon. Lennon disengaged himself from the music business in 1975 to raise his infant son Sean, but re-emerged with Ono in 1980 with the new album Double Fantasy. He was murdered three weeks after its release.
