Two cars previously owned by rock star royalty – the Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb and Status Quo’s Francis Rossi – are being sold by Classic Car Auctions (CCA) at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show with Discovery.

The two models – a 1977 Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL and 1995 BMW E38 750iL – will make their headline performances at the NEC for the two-day sale on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th March.

Barry Gibb owned this particular Mercedes-Benz for over 30 years. It shows a mere 59,000 miles on the clock and boasts hydraulic self-levelling rear suspension, a very expensive option to be fitted at the time.

It has been serviced and MOT’d annually with many of the invoices on file invoiced to Barry Gibb personally.

Meanwhile, the 1995 BMW previously owned by rock legend Francis Rossi from new for 17 years until 2012 is guided at £7,000 to £9,000.

The car, an automatic model, is described as being in ‘exceptional condition for its age’

Richard Greenhalgh, classic car specialist at Classic Car Auctions, said: “It would be a tragedy to miss the opportunity to own either of these cars, previously owned by two of the biggest names in the music industry.

“So, whatever you want, Classic Car Auctions has an extensive range of models for auction at our March sale. All tastes and budgets are catered for and we look forward to seeing you at the NEC.”
