AA flash Ferrari sports car bought by Elton John when he first found fame which he then gave to his drummer as a present has emerged for sale for almost £300,000.<br />
<br />
The flamboyant rocker snapped up the bright yellow Ferrari Dino 206GT in November 1972, the same month hit single Crocodile Rock rocketed up the charts.<br />
<br />
Sir Elton drove the plush motor for six months, racking up 5,000 miles in the process, before gifting it to his longstanding drummer Nigel Olsson in June 1973.<br />
<br />
Experts at London auction house Bonhams expect it to fetch £280,000 when it goes under the hammer at Bonhams in London.
