HEROES DRIVE VOLVOS
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.
