While John Lennon’s psychedelic painted Rolls Royce Phantom V limousine is probably what most people think about when you say “Beatle car”, all four of the fab guys had notable cars over the years, including Minis, Aston Martins and in the case of George Harrison, a collection of great cars. Paul McCartney composed Hey Jude using a tape recorder he had installed in his Aston Martin DB6. Ringo Starr drove a Mini with a Radford luxury conversion and a custom hatchback so he could load his drum kit. Harrison was a serious motorhead. His own Aston, a 1965 DB5 just sold at auction for a bit more than a half million dollars.
