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.
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.
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.
Experts at London auction house Bonhams expect it to fetch £280,000 when it goes under the hammer at Bonhams in London.
