The car a 1991 Virage 2 door coupe, the last word in early 90’s luxury and performance was supplied at Sir Elton’s request in the Rolls Royce colour Seychelles Blue, with a pale cream leather interior with navy blue piping and carpets. The final touch, a bespoke £5,000 Sony stereo system brought the price when new to a shade under £130,000.

This represents a fabulous opportunity for its lucky purchaser when it goes under the hammer on Friday 28th June.
