This gorgeous piece of luxury driving was photographed in the parking lot of the Huntington Library in San Marino, California in December of 2014.
From The Car Starter:
“This car (a 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limousine) sits in the lobby of the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, British Columbia. It once belonged to John Lennon, hence the paint job. But that’s not the only customization. Inside, apparently, there is a fold-out bed, a portable refrigerator, and a record player. There also used to be a TV. Bear in mind, all these changes were made in the mid-to-late 1960s, when the whole refrigerator-and-TV-in-a-car thing were much more impressive feats of technology.” On June 29th in 1985, the car sold for a record sum of $3,006,385, (£1,768,462) at a Sotheby’s auction in New York.

I gave up driving for life in Manhattan’s concrete jungle nearly twenty years ago, and lord knows I don’t miss it. But if I lived in a place where I had to start driving again, and I had a one and a half million dollars to spend on a car, I’d like to drive this car right here.
