The Beatles were a cultural phenomenon that defined what it meant to be young and cool for a whole generation. They continue to define what it means to be a good musician. It is no surprise that their life still evokes interest even 60 years after they first started releasing their music. In the following sections, we go over the cars of the Beatles and find out more about what happened to some of those cars.
1. John Lennon’s Cars
John owned two of the costlier cars of his time: a Ferrari 330 GT and a Rolls Royce Phantom V. Other than that, his 1970 Mercedes Benz 600 Pullman Limousine wasn’t any cheap either. His Ferrari was in news recently when it was put on auction in Paris by the auction firm Bonhams. Other than these cars, he also owned a Mercedes-Benz 230 SL, a 1956 Austin Princess and a 1979 Mercedes-Benz 300TD at various points in his life.

3. George Harrison’s Cars
Two of the cars owned by George included a McLaren F1 and a Jaguar XKE (E-Type).
