In the world of collection cars, a premium is often attached to a model that has an interesting history – if that history is known of course.
All things begin equal between two classic cars, the one with the story has an added value. Case in point is this 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona 1972, for example. In itself this is a very interesting car, in part because only 158 units of the model were built for the UK market – which of course means the steering wheel is on the right.
This is, to begin with, a car that’s hard to find. But even better, we know the history of this particular model, including each one of its owners over the past 46 years.
And that’s where it gets really interesting, and makes it worth a mention here of course. In 1973, the car was bought by none other than Elton John. The popular British rock star was 26 years old at the time and was enjoying top-of-the-charts success with his album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
