Back in 1965, John Lennon bought his first car: a Ferrari 330GT 2+2 Coupé in Azzuro blue paint with a blue interior. Originally priced at £6,500 ($8435) , the famed singer songwriter used the car for three years until October 1967, covering more than 20,000 miles. In the late 1980s, the car was acquired by its current owner.

Now, car will be on auction by Bonhams on July 12, 2013.  It is estimated to fetch between $240,000 – $311,000 at auction. Also included will be an extensive history file about the car with correspondence with Lennon himself.
