Maserati`s tend to have a high resale value. Especially when they were owned by celebrities like Elton John. The famous British singer owned a very special Maserati Quattroporte V, built in 2005. Now, the car is going to be sold at Classic Car Auctions March Sale, taking place on Saturday 19th March.

Ordered new by Sir Elton, the car features a host of extras, including a rear DVD player and screen, games input, two headphones, remote control and six CD auto changer. Also included in the sale, the original Maserati welcome letter, unused personal 24hr concierge members card, and personal gift of a matching leather covered key tray, tool kit, gloves and car cover. 

The history file also includes national press cuttings from the sale of the car to its second owner in 2010.

Estimated at between £15,000 and £17,000, the car offers a great value example of Italian exotica, with Sir Elton’s name on the V5 certificate, a mere 28,000 miles on the clock and fresh service.

The auction house is no stranger to selling celebrity pre-owned cars at auction and cars like this could prove to be valuable assets. Two very special examples were sold at its December Sale last month. A 2007 Range Rover Sport first owned by none other than football superstar David Beckham was sold in front of a packed auction hall for £31,350, more than £8,000 over its lower estimate.
