Courtesy of BonhamsA pair of vintage cars formerly owned, respectively, by former Beatles band mates Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are slated to be auctioned by the famed Bonhams auction house on December 2 in London.

A 1964 Aston Martin DB5 that McCartney ordered not long after The Beatles made their historic Ed Sullivan Show appearance is expected to fetch between $1.6 million and $2 million at the sale, which will be held at Bonhams’ New Bond St. location. Sir Paul had the vehicle specially equipped with a unique Philips record player, which has since been restored. He owned the car for about six years, and since selling it, it has been repainted from its original sierra blue to silver.

The car belonging to Starr is a 1966 Mini Cooper ‘S’ Radford Conversion that originally was purchased by Beatles manager Brian Epstein. Ringo took over ownership of the vehicle in June 1967, and sold it in December 1968. The car, which reportedly was modified with a hatchback so Starr could haul his drum kit in it, is estimated to sell for between $120,000 and $160,000.

Bonhams’ Bond Street Sale also features two cars formerly owned by Elton John. One is a 1959 Bentley S1 Continental Sport Saloon that the pop-rock legend purchased in 1976 and sold in 2001. It’s expected to bring in from $520,000 to $660,000. The other is a 1960 Bentley S2 Continental Flying Spur Sports Saloon that Elton bought during the ’70s and also sold in 2001. It’s estimated sale price is between $210,000 and $250,000.
