8:25 A.M. EDT – A stunning 1967 Lamborghini 400GT 2+2 formerly owned by legendary Beatle Sir Paul McCartney will be auctioned off by Bonhams at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK on July 1st.
One of only 247 built, the classic right hand drive Lambo which debuted at the 1966 Geneva Auto Show with coachwork by Carrozzeria Touring is expected to fetch up to about $200,000.

McCartney is believed to have bought it when new. In the Sixties his fleet of flashy autos also included an Aston Martin DB6 and a Mini Cooper.
These days the eco-friendly musical icon is more likely to bee seen driving a hybrid Lexus though he’s also been spotted tooling around in a Corvette.
As we reported earlier this month, the Goodwood sale also includes an alluring 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 Cabriolet, previously owned by the legendary Grand Prix and sports-racing driver Innes Ireland.
