Stars and their cars: Barry Gibb and his 1977 Mercedes-Benz 450 SEL

Previously owned by the rock star, it’s being sold by Classic Car Auctions (CCA) at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show with Discovery in the NEC, Birmingham.

This car will be offered at auction with a sale estimate of £12,000 to £15,000

Barry Gibb CBE owned this particular Mercedes-Benz for over 30 years. With a mere 59,000 miles on the clock and boasts hydraulic self-levelling rear suspension, a very expensive option to be fitted at the time. It has been serviced and MOT’d annually with many of the invoices on file invoiced to Barry Gibb personally.

"It would be a tragedy to miss the opportunity to own"
