Mohamed al Fayed, the former owner of Harrod’s, London has something of an infamous car collection. It seems however, that Mr. al Fayed is liquidating his collection after selling Harrod’s last year to Qatar’s royal family for $2.2 billion. Maybe this is his version of a New Year’s makeover? Out with the old, in with the new? Maybe it’s just out with the old, but in any case, his loss could be your gain as the he rolls out his collection of Ferraris and Rolls-Royces.
All in all, al Fayed is putting ten cars up for sale, some expected to sell for more than $220,000 each. One of the most coveted cars on the chopping block is a 1965 Ferrari formerly owned by John Lennon (not to mention Dodi Fayed). A 1963 Rolls Phantom limo that used to belong to Prince Edward is expected to fetch around $240,000. One thing’s for sure, this is not your average used car sales lot, and you can bet that no high-pressure sales are going to be necessary.
