If you’re a member of the most famous band of your era, you’re likely going to want something special to drive around in. George Harrison of Beatles fame loved the smell of petrol and his car history further paints him as a true enthusiast.
From exotic Ferrari Dinos to elegant Jaguar E-types, Harrison had taste when it came to flash motors, but even more so when it came to being a little more incognito. His black-on-black Mercedes-Benz 500 SEL AMG will be up for grabs at an Anglia Car Auctions sale next January.
For those times when a red Ferrari wasn't appropriate, this still potent — yet more subtle — Mercedes fit the bill for Harrison. It provided all of the comfort and luxury of a contemporary German saloon, while also delivering thundering performance via the talented work of tuner AMG.
