Baby, you can drive our cars: Ex-Beatles cars head to auction

Two of Britain's best-loved motoring icons are heading to auction soon, as Bonhams hosts its annual Bond Street Sale. An Aston Martin DB5 and classic Mini will both go under the hammer on December 2, and both share a common feature – previous owners as well known as the cars themselves.

The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 was bought new by former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney, while the 1966 Austin Mini Cooper S was owned by Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.
