The Telegraph reports that a 1974 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow owned by former Queen frontman Freddie Mercury has been sold at auction for more than six times its guide price, fetching £74,000 (US $119,000).
The 62,000-mile classic Rolls-Royce had a guide price of just £9,000-£11,000. It features grey leather, wood trim, electric windows, automatic gearbox, a car phone and radio cassette player. Power is provided by a 6.75-litre V8 engine.
It was sold as part of the Coys auction at Autosport International to a Russian businessman through telephone bidding.
