Elton John’s E-Type

Photo: Bonhams

According to the listing at Bonhams for its March 2012 sale, Elton John bought his E-Type in 1987 and kept it for 14 years, though rarely drove it. Its registration plate, ‘OKE1’ gave rise to its nickname among his staff: “OK Elton”.

Sold for £82,000 in 2012, the 1965 4.2-litre E-Type already looks like it was a bargain for whoever bought it. E-Type values are soaring now, and that’s before considering this particular car’s celebrity association and the care taken for it over the last three decades.
