The Beatles tastes in cars is rather interesting. Many are exotic and expensive, others, not that different. A quick inventory of their cars shows the following:

  • John Lennon's Psychedelic 1965 Rolls Royce Phantom V
  • George Harrison's Psychedelic 1966 Mini Cooper S
  • John Lennon's first car in the United States, 1972 Chrysler Station Wagon. He drove all around the New York area unnoticed.
  • Lennon's last car, 1979 Mercedes Benz 300TD
  • Lennon's 1965 Mercedes Benz 230 SL
  • George Harrison's 1964 Jaguar E-Type 3.8
  • George Harrison's exotic McLaren F1
  • Paul's 1965 Mini Cooper S and Lexus LS 600H
  • George's 1966 Aston Martin DB6 (recently sold for $550,000)
  • Ringo's French Facel Vega and 1968 Mustang
  • John's ordinary Austin Maxi 1750
  • George's 1986 560E Mercedes
  • George's F1 Formula racing car
  • George's 1969 Ferrari 365 GTC
  • Paul McCartney's 1967 Lamborghini 400GT 2+2
  • Paul's 2005 C5 Corvette

Just a quick glance, of the four, George bought, drove more expensive and exotic cars than the other three. The least interested in cars was Ringo except for his rare Facel Vega. John seemed more into Mercedes Benz and limos early on, yet by 1969, he had dumped those and bought smaller cars of no real zip. Paul would be second to George for owning more expensive and rare cars. Yet, only George seems to have really loved is fast cars, he even drove his F1 Formula car around the track.

      Hello this leap year day, thanks for great motoring down memory lane. The Beatles certainly made enough to indulge in fancy cars. John drove around NY unnoticed in a Chrysler wagon ?, wonder if he wore a disguise. Have never seen a Facel Vega, maybe there are none over here.
