Beatles Fan Boosts Paul McCartney’s Lamborghini

A Lamborghini sports car once owned by The Beatles’ Paul McCartney sold at auction for £122,500 ($197,000) on Thursday. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the winning phone bid for the 400GT 2+2 was purchased by a Beatles fan in the 19th annual Bonhams sale at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Sussex.

According to three histories of the Italian carmaker, McCartney was the first owner of the 400GT. The auctioned sportster, built in 1967, was originally orange and was owned by Macca for three years.

In October, RM Auctions sold a 1972 Lamborghini Miura SV once owned by Rod Stewart for $1.1 million.
