Freddie Mercury's Rolls Goes For Big Money At Auction

Freddie Mercury's Rolls Goes For Big Money At Auction

A car once used by the late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury now has a new owner. The UK's "Daily Telegraph" says the singer's Rolls Royce was expected to fetch between 14-thousand-400 and 17-thousand-700 dollars at the Coys auction in Birmingham, England over the weekend. But when it went under the hammer on Saturday bidding climbed into the six figures before a Russian businessman got the car for just under 119-thousand dollars. The 1974 Rolls Silver Shadow features a grey leather interior and wood trim, with automatic windows, a radio cassette player, and a car phone. Mercury bought the car in 1979 through his Goose Productions company, and used it until his death in 1991. Since then the car had been with Freddie's family, who last used it to attend the 2002 premiere of the Queen musical "We Will Rock You." In addition, Mercury reportedly didn't put any of the 62-thousand miles on the car himself. He never actually drove the vehicle but used chauffeurs, because he didn't have a driver's license.
