Christies auctioned off a number of pop super-star Elton John's cars this week rasing nearly $3,000,000. The cars sold included Ferrari Testarossas from the mid 1980's, Aston Martins, a Rolls Royce limo and a very rare 1993 Jaguar XJ220.
Christies claims that John said he sold the cars because he rarely had the time to drive them however reports of John's recent finaical troubles have been circulating on the internet and on radio. With a 3000-mile oil change costing over $5,000 on an 1987 Ferrairi Testarossa, like the one given to him by MCA, you can understand why Elton's TR has less than 2000 miles on it.
