    The blue one they have at the same auction would be my pick.

    From what I've been told sales have been slow in the UK, it will be interesting to see if it sells.

    Does this being Elton John's command that much of a premium?

    IMO no; The Daytona was very much a car of choice with British Rock/pop stars of the time (Mick Jagger, Jack Bruce, Mark Bolan, Bobby Whitlock, John Bonham all owned them at one point or another) and I don't think any have sold at a premium as a result. I had a look at the car in the auction the last time it was offered and it is in a very nice but not concours condition. As this car is from a deceased estate I would expect it to sell if there are any genuine bids on the car? Based on the recent Monterey sales when adjusted for FX the estimate seems reasonable.

    That's what I figured. More of a car show / coffee talking point, instead of a value adder

    Can the new owner legitimately call himself "rocket man" lol?
