25Elton John’s 1956 Bentley S1 Continental Sport Saloon

via Bonhams

Elton John is a huge fan of Bentleys, Jaguars, Aston Martins, and Rolls-Royces—all the big, luxurious brands from the UK (which makes sense given his heritage). The iconic musician bought this beautiful Bentley S1 Continental Sport Saloon in 1976, then kept it for 25 years. He told Bonham that he

thought this was “the most beautiful car, I think, that’s ever been designed.” (via RobbReport.com). That’s pretty high praise! Elton’s uber-celebrity status added about 15-20% to the estimate when he eventually sold it at auction in 2017 for around $550,000. The car is also covered in HJ Mulliner coachwork, which made it even more coveted. In the past, Elton has sold 20 cars from the aforementioned brands in a single auction, but none that fetched as much as this one!
