Lamborghini Miura, once owned by Rod Stewart
Maserati Ghibli, once owned by Adam Clayton

A LAMBORGHINI Miura once owned by Sir Rod Stewart has sold for almost a million pounds at auction.

The car was one of two superstar models sold at a Coys auction during the Classic and Sports Car Show at London's Alexandra Palace.

The other hot lot was a Maserati Ghibli with U2 drummer Adam Clayton's name in the log book which went under the hammer for a world record price of £303,000.

The Miura, which sold for £909,000, took centre stage at the sale and became the most valuable car to sell at the auction.

The P400S Lamborghini had been the subject of a £100,000 restoration and upgrade to SV specification while the Maserati was one of only eight right-hand drive models ever made.

Another headline lot was the first registered Range Rover, which went for £93,000. The 1970 Range Rover was the 26th model manufactured and is believed to be the first car that Land Rover registered to themselves on May 27, 1970. It went on to become one of the first of the batch of 20 Press launch cars.

Other notable vehicles which went under the hammer at the sale included an original right hand drive 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GT E Series, with coachwork by Scaglietti and design by Pininfarina, which went for £374,000 and a 1977 Ferrari 512 BB that featured at the 1977 London Motor Show, which sold for £225,000.
