A 1996 Bentley Continental T Coupé, which was first owned by music legend Sir Elton John, was one of the highlights at Bonhams' Rolls-Royce, Bentley Motor Cars & Automobilia sale in Leicestershire on Saturday, June 19.
Sold for £58,700, the car has only 25,000 miles on the odometer. Overall, the sale made £822,957 in total with an 82% sale rate.
"This is a pleasing result showing a continuing demand for Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars," said Jamie Knight, Group Head of the Motoring Department at Bonhams.
Top prices were also paid for a 1924 Rolls-Royce 45/50 hp Silver Ghost Drophead Coupé - formerly the property of famous motoring author and collector David Scott-Moncrieff - which brought £82,900.
Other big sales included a 1930 Rolls-Royce 40/50hp Phantom II Sedanca de Ville, previously owned by Emily Macy Brewster of the Brewster coachbuilding family, sold for £77,400, and a 1949 Bentley Drophead Coupé, which made £52,100.
In other Elton John auction news, a stunning and stylish Art Deco statuette formerly owned by the star, The Cigarette Girl, also auctioned at Bonhams earlier this month for £25,200.
