Car With Illustrious Past is Being Sold Online

Written by Chief Editor.

A rare 1949 Delahaye 175 Cabriolet once owned by Sir Elton is being auctioned off, and the deadline to bid is tomorrow.

 
This is a left-hand drive model originally built for the Maharaja of Mysore in India as a sunroof roupe. In the early seventies, it was purchased by an American businessman before it was sent to Europe and auctioned in 1979. Elton bought the vehicle in 1980 and is thought to have owned it until 1983.
 
Before long, the car was converted into a Cabriolet and later returned to the States, joining the Petersen Automotive Museum collection. It's located in Los Angeles and is being sold by the museum here:
