HEROES DRIVE VOLVOS

Classic Cars (UK) - - Chasing Cars -

It’s not only old Bea­t­les cars that com­mand a large pre­mium – a Volvo 262C bought new by David Bowie re­cently sold for £160,735. That was over three times the top es­ti­mate, and prob­a­bly ten times what a good non-bowie car would cost you – though it did have the added at­trac­tion of just 53,000km (33,000 miles) on the clock. De­liv­ered to Bowie’s Swiss base in June 1981 it was reg­is­tered in his real name, David Robert Jones. Bowie’s style shows in it be­ing or­dered with­out the vinyl roof usu­ally fit­ted to 262Cs.
