Rock & Roll superstar Freddie Mercury's Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is to be sold by international auctioneers COYS in the Autosport International show at the NEC, Birmingham, on Saturday 12th January.
 
This very special Rolls Royce Silver Shadow was bought for Freddie Mercury's personal use by his managing company Goose Productions Ltd. in 1979 and could sell for just £11,000.
 
The car was last used for the Premier of the Queen musical ‘We will Rock you’ in 2002, and has covered minimal mileage since.
 
This car was one of first Rolls-Royce models to use a monocoque chassis and also to introduce many new features such as disc brakes and independent rear suspension. Freddie used this Silver Shadow until his death in November 1991 and it has remained with his family ever since.
