will be going up for auction at Bonhams in London, on Sunday, December 1

This beautiful 1964 Facel Vega Facel II than you are seeing in the picture above was once owned by Beatles member Ringo Starr (Drums, keyboards, vocals) and now it's up auction for the excitement of classic car collectors!

This particular Facel II example of which only two exist is powered by a 6.7-liter V8 instead of the original 6.3-Liter engine which already produced a healthy 390 Hp and allowed the coupe to hit 241 km/h (150 mph). What makes it so rare is that it also was one out of 26 right-hand-drive Facel II coupes ever produced. The car is expected to raise more than £300k ($482k) when it goes on sale next December.
