Fancy Freddie Mercury's car?


Pop stars and their cars – as soon as they get any money, they’re off down the showroom to buy the biggest blingmobile money can buy before driving it off the nearest road or into the nearest swimming pool. Obviously no-one told Freddie Mercury this.

Over at Bayraider, the team have found the Queen singer’s old runaround up for auction. Rather than the diamond-encrusted Roller you’d expect, it’s a more modest motor – a charcoal grey Volvo 740 GLE, bought for Freddie as a present around the time of the Barcelona album, obviously by a very sensible friend. Though perhaps not that sensible – Freddie couldn’t actually drive.

Anyway, if you want to bid for this unique piece or rock memorabilia, head on over to Bayraider.
