A bright yellow Ferrari which belonged to Sir Elton John in the 1970s is to go under the hammer later this month (Nov14).

The Rocket Man hitmaker bought the Ferrari Dino 206Gt in November, 1972 to celebrate the success of his U.S. chart-topper Crocodile Rock, and then he gave it to his drummer Nigel Olsson as a gift the following year (73).

The sports car is expected to fetch $448,000 (£280,000) when it goes on sale at Bonhams auction house in London on 30 November (14).
